All Blacks great Dan Carter and former Black Sticks hockey player Honor Carter have welcomed their third child into the world.

The former NZ first-five eighth made the announcement on social media, following the birth of Rocco Carter.

"Marco & Fox are proud new brothers," Carter tweeted. "We are excited to announce the arrival of Rocco George Carter, born 14th January. We are so grateful and couldn't be happier."

The married couple have two sons already - Marco was born in 2013 and Fox in 2015.

While Honor is no longer playing hockey, Dan, 36, is currently playing rugby in Japan, after signing a two-year deal with the Kobelco Steelers last year.

The two-time World Cup winner led the Steelers to the Top League title, thrashing the Suntory Sungoliath 55-5 in the final, and was named Most Valuable Player of the competition.

He also emerged as the competition's top goalkicker, with an 86.2 percent success rate across the season.
