FORMER Ipswich Flyers co-captain Brooke Dixon thinks her new son Vainu'u Baxter Kevin Totini will probably follow in his father's rugby league career rather than netball, but she's happy to report he is well and truly a mum's boy.
Brooke and her partner Totini John Totini, who played for Norths last season, were thrilled to welcome their new bub, who will be known as Baxter, just in time for Christmas.
"He is my parents' 13th grandchild," Brooke said.
"His dad is from Samoa so his name means high chief. I actually goggled the meaning while I was in labour and it literally means water village.
"We picked it because it's a family name and Kevin is my dad's name."
The seasoned netballer and new mum said she aimed to compete in a tournament for the Queensland Indoor Netball Team mid-next year.
"I had about seven months off. Once I'm fully recovered I'll start training," she said. "I'm hoping to be up and running by a tournament in May."
