Brownlow Medallist Patrick Dangerfield has shown his social media prowess, enlisting some high-profile help for a video announcing an impending addition to his family.

The Geelong star has posted a video on Twitter, using Channel Seven sports MC Craig Willis to make his announcement.

The man from Moggs Creek – who won the 2016 Brownlow Medal as the AFL’s best and fairest in a canter after a brilliant season – is no stranger to social media.

Dangerfield sent the message on Monday afternoon, sharing an ultrasound video with his 83,600 Twitter followers.

“Patrick and Mardi are proud to announce a new Dangerfield for 2017 – and I’m feeling Craig is the perfect name,” said Willis, who is the Master of Ceremonies at the AFL Grand Final.

“This ultrasound has been brought to you by the obstetrician … in association with the bedroom.”

The announcement will doubtless excite Adelaide fans, since the Crows’ former number 32 played 154 games for the club – more than enough to qualify a future son under the AFL’s father-son rules.

Of course, Cats fans will be hoping the star midfielder plays another 76 games for Geelong, to qualify Dangerfield’s current club for a similar chance to draft any future progeny.
