Former AFL player Josh Hill had the rare recent distinction of becoming a new dad twice, within the space of a week.

Earlier this month, the ex-West Coast and Western Bulldogs forward celebrated the birth of new daughter, Noa, with his fiancee Jo Duffy.

Five days later, Hill's former fling Kara Wicks also gave birth to a baby girl named Mila Grace, however, the former AFL player has so fail failed to celebrate the second birth.

Hill's baby love triangle came to light after Wikipedia updated his page to explain the crazy situation.

“2020 has been a big year for Hill, becoming a father for the first time … two children born in the same week to two different women,” it read.

Hill has since confirmed to the Daily Mail that he is the father of both children but denies that he was ever in a serious relationship with Wicks.

“It was a mistake having sex with this girl, and I’m spending every day making it up to my partner.

“It was a casual arrangement, which I stupidly didn’t stop straight away.”

Hill vows to honour responsibilities to both children

However, a close friend of Ms Wicks told the Daily Mail the couple were "together for over 12 months" and had entered into a long-distance after he moved from Perth to Melbourne.

The Instagram page of MS Wicks is still filled with numerous pictures of her and Hill together, taken at various locations.

While Hill has so far distanced himself from Wicks' birth, he insists he will “honour his responsibilities” as a father to both children.

The former forward moved from Perth to Victoria after being delisted from the West Coast Eagles at the end of the 2017 season.

He played 107 games for the Eagles, with a previous 66-game stint at the Western Bulldogs before retiring from the AFL at the age of 28.

Hill is now a coach at the Melbourne-based St Albans Saints football club.
