In a heartwarming development, Adelaide AFLW captain Chelsea Randall and her partner Marijana Rajcic have embraced the joys of parenthood with the arrival of their first child, Tomi Randall. The South Australian footy power couple, who made headlines earlier this year when they revealed their pregnancy, took to Instagram to share their happiness with the world.
The social media post exuded love and excitement as the couple introduced their beautiful son, saying, “Welcome to the world Tomi Randall. Our beautiful boy. We are SO in love.” The announcement was met with an outpouring of congratulations from their AFLW friends and colleagues, celebrating this significant milestone in their lives.
Chelsea Randall, who has led the AFLW to three premiership wins as captain of the Adelaide Crows, and Marijana Rajcic, a former pro soccer captain of Adelaide United turned footy player, have been influential figures in the world of Australian women’s sports. Marijana, who retired earlier this year, described Chelsea as “the best thing to come out of my AFLW career” after an impressive run of 50 AFLW matches. She now contributes as an assistant coach for the Adelaide Crows.
Their love story has been one of resilience and love, as they navigated the challenges of reality TV together. Chelsea and Marijana appeared on “The Amazing Race” in 2021 as best friends but revealed their romantic relationship began just before filming. Despite the pressures of the competition, their love prevailed, leading to their engagement in March, with Marijana captioning the momentous occasion with “It’s a big YES! 🤍💍” and Chelsea responding with, “My everything #yesinfinitytimesover.”
As they embark on this new journey of parenthood, Chelsea Randall and Marijana Rajcic continue to inspire with their love, resilience, and commitment to both each other and the world of women’s sports. Their story serves as a testament to the power of love and the enduring bonds that can be formed in the most unexpected places.
