Ding Junhui and wife Apple celebrated the birth of their first child, a girl, on Wednesday.

China’s top player Ding lost to Robert Milkins in the last 32 of the Hong Rui Ma Yushan World Open but just a few hours later announced on Weibo that his daughter had been born.

Ding, age 31, is next due to compete at the Sangsom Six Red World Championship in September.
