“The thoughts of the entire Crows family are with Taylor and Ellie, as well as their extended family, at this difficult time. The Club asks that their privacy is respected and there will be no further comment at this stage.”

In September, Taylor Walker, 28, and his partner Ellie Brown, 27, announced their baby was due in March.


The devastating news comes less than two months after Adelaide vice-captain Rory Sloane and his wife Belinda’s son was born stillborn. 

Taylor Walker has been granted leave from pre-season training.
