Speaking exclusively to Daily Mail Australia at an event celebrating the FIFA World Cup on Friday, the cricketing legend, 41, revealed he is a “huge family man” and would love to have “20 more kids”.

“I cherish every minute I have with her [Kelsey],’ he explained.

“I am so grateful that she changed my life for the better. She helped me become the person I want to be.”

The former Australian cricket captain divorced wife Kyly Clarke in September 2019 after seven years of marriage.

They only announced their breakup on February 12, 2020.

In a statement at the time, the couple said the “amicable” decision to part ways was “the best course of action” for their daughter.

Clearly a loving father, Clarke is often pictured with his daughter, with the father of one adding to Daily Mail Australia that he would ‘love to have another 20’ children.

“I’m so in love with my little girl that I think I’ve always been a family man, like I love my sister and my parents. My friends are like family to me. And they also have children. So my sister has two kids, so I’m an uncle. Family means everything to me,” he explained.

‘The only compulsory thing in my house is swimming. I want her to learn how to swim because we spend a lot of time on the water. We have a pool in our backyard.’
