Reynolds welcomes arrival of first child

Tahan Lew Fatt and David Reynolds with their child, Ryu Reynolds

Kelly Grove Racing recruit David Reynolds’ start to 2021 has just gotten a whole lot better, with partner Tahan Lew Fatt giving birth to the couple’s first child.

Baby boy Ryu Reynolds arrived in the early hours of Monday morning, following what Lew Fatt described on social media as “a full 24-hour ordeal”.

“Mummy was exhausted it was in fact a little traumatic experience,” she wrote.

“Daddy was such a fantastic support to mummy and couldn’t have done it without him every step of the way and the amazing midwives and doctors at Royal Womens,” she added.

Ryu’s arrival comes almost exactly a month out from the Supercars season-opener, the Repco Mount Panorama 500 on February 26-28.

It follows long-awaited confirmation earlier this month Reynolds would rejoin the Kellys, marking a fresh start after a breakdown in relations with former team Erebus Motorsport.

The 35-year-old will drive a Penrite-sponsored #26 Ford Mustang this season as team-mate to Andre Heimgartner.

Reynolds joins a list of fathers on the full-time Supercars grid including Tim Slade, Mark Winterbottom, Fabian Coulthard and James Courtney.
