Cross hopes to be 'stress-free' on Premier League return: "Life has been very difficult over the past few months"
Rob Cross hopes to be 'stress-free' when the Premier League returns later this month after by his own admission, a harrowing year so far.
Cross spoke to Darts World recently after losing his grandad to COVID-19 and his wife, Georgia suffering SPD during pregnancy which has seen her wheelchair bound.
This has meant for 'Voltage', his priority hasn't been the darts but he hopes it will start to look up for him when he welcomes his fourth child just two weeks before the Premier League resumes.
“Life has been very difficult over the past few months after losing my grandad to Covid. My wife Georgia is heavily pregnant but has SPD which means she’s been in a wheelchair for a few weeks. That means being a father and a husband has been my priority right now," said Cross to DartsWorld.
It’s up in the air at the minute but the baby is due this week so hopefully it will get easier after that. It’s something to look forward to.
“It will be a relief when Georgia has given birth and that she and the baby are OK. It’s obviously been stressful for us all. She never has a smooth pregnancy bless her!
“This is the last child, that will mean two boys and two girls. That’s enough. I’m happy and contented. My children are my motivation, that’s why I go to work.
"Hopefully for the first time in a long time I will be stress-free when I get back to the Premier League later this month."
