Awkward Moment Jarryd Hayne Is Asked About His Baby On The Project

Here is the awkward moment where Jarryd Hayne was lost for words when The Project's Peter Hellier on Channel Ten surprised him with a question about his first child on the way.

As you can see in the video below, Helliar asked the NRL superstar: 'Hypothetically speaking, if one day you would be blessed enough to become a father, which jumper would you be giving the child — an Eels jumper, San Francisco, Titans?' he said.

Hayne stuttered: "Ahhh, I don’t know. Obviously it depends where I’m at," said Hayne.

"You know so... it would be, it would be a Titans one... at the moment." Watch the video below. Note: Audio has been sped up for some reason.

Hayne met the lady, Amellia Bonnici, 25, on instagram in early 2016 before he moved to the US to chase his NRL dream.

"According to a source, 'after finding out she was expecting, the 25-year-old was worried about telling Hayne because they weren’t officially dating',” said MG, on the Triple M Grill Team.


Hayne signed with the Gold Coast Titans midway through this season, having returned from a one-year stint with the San Francisco 49ers in the NFL.
