Ireland Soccer Star Harry Arter and partner Rachel Welcome Baby Girl
Harry Arter and partner Rachel have welcomed new baby Raine Renne into their family.
The Republic of Ireland star and his fiancee suffered the heartbreak of a stillborn birth in December 2015.
Arter paid tribute to tragic Renee in an Instagram post announcing the birth of his daughter, whose middle name is a touching tribute to Renee.
He wrote: “A rainbow baby is the understanding that the beauty of a rainbow does not negate the ravage of a storm.
“When the rainbow appears, it doesn’t mean the storm never happened or that the family is now dealing with its aftermath.
“What is means is that something beautiful and full of light has appeared in the midst of the darkest clouds.”
Bournemouth chairman Jeff Mostyn congratulated the couple on the birth.
He tweeted: “Thrilled with the incredible news @HarryArter2 and Rachel have a baby daughter Raine. With Fondest Love from us all.”
The months leading up to the birth saw Arter trolled by non-league footballer Alfie Barker.
Barker posted vile messages mocking Arter’s stillborn child.
The former Hitchin Town and Codicote FC player has since been banned from all football for seven months, given a £250 fine and warned over his future conduct.
