Johannesburg- Rugby star Elton Jantjies is overjoyed with the new addition to his family. 

On Thursday morning Elton's management revealed that the rugby player and his girlfriend, Iva Ristic welcomed their bundle of joy into the world in September. 

But they've managed to keep him all to themselves until now. 

Little EJ has spent the last month and a half with his mom, who is Greek in her home country, while Elton was in Japan. Elton, Eva and lil EJ will return to SA in January. 

"It was truly one of the happiest days of my life," Elton was quoted in the statement. 

Here's the full statement and a cute snap of EJ:
