West Indies cricketer.Chris Gayle has named his newborn daught, "Blush", after January's Big Bash 'don't blush baby' scandal.

Gayle took to social media to welcome the arrival of his first daughter, having  left his Indian Premier League club Royal Challengers Bangalore to rush back to the Caribbean to be with his partner for the birth.

"We would like to welcome the arrival of our beautiful daughter 'Blush' to this world 2 hours ago, Thank God" Gayle posted on his social accounts, along with a photo of his partner Tasha.

In January, Gayle was at the centre of a controversy in the Big Bash League after his awkward attempts to flirt with Network 10 boundary-line reporter Mel McLaughlin. 

Gayle was interviewed by McLaughlin following his dismissal in the Melbourne Renegades BBL clash with the Hobart Hurricanes at Blundstone Arena, where he suggested the pair "should go out for a drink" after the match was over.

Gayle's uncomfortable and awkward advances where swiftly defused by McLaughlin, with the Jamaican then telling the reporter "don't blush, baby".
