Tiny Willow Kamila Boyd is a giant tribute to the power of love - and the tortured NRL star's determination to beat his demons and build a happier future with wife Kayla.
'My own little family is pretty special for me,' smiles the Brisbane Broncos player.
As they snuggle together on the lounge, it's difficult to believe Darius spent three weeks at a private psychiatric clinic last year, having reached 'rock bottom' after Kayla walked away from their marriage in despair.
But Darius slowly rebuilt his life - and his marriage - with support from stylist and blogger Kayla, 28, who never stopped loving him, despite their separation.
'I'm very proud of Darius for taking the steps he did and going into rehab, because he's a much happier person today,' said Kayla.

'There's an old saying that you should 'trust the timing of your life' - and obviously for us to fall pregnant when we did, it was the right time. Darius is an amazing father and Willow is a blessing. Where we are now, it's great!'
