The newborn is the couple’s second child, joining their eight-year-old daughter, Isabella.

Yates announced she and Egan were expecting back in December last year.

Partner and professional surfer Egan also shared pictures of their newborn’s arrival on Instagram, revealing Yates had given birth last Tuesday.

“On 30/03/21 @jessyates and I welcomed our second baby into the world,” he wrote.

“Named after his master craftsman grandfather, Sam Egan.

“Bringing Samuel home from the hospital yesterday instantly made our household feel complete with his presence.”

As expected, Yates will miss the next event in Tasmania across April 17-18.

Supercars is set to utilise existing talent to cover for Yates’ absence.

The popular Fox Sports host has skippered Supercars broadcasts since 2015.

The 2021 season marks her seventh season as the hosting face of the category.

The Repco Supercars Championship field will return to Symmons Plains for the Beaurepaires Tasmania SuperSprint across April 17-18. Tickets are on sale now.

The event will be broadcast live on Foxtel and will be streamed on Kayo.
