It's been a big offseason for Crows Tom Lynch and Sam Jacobs

Adelaide ruckman Sam Jacobs and wife Izzy are expecting their first child.

‘Sauce’ announced the news on his Instagram account this week.

The couple is keeping the sex of baby Jacobs, due in May, as a surprise.

It follows the news Eddie Betts and wife Anna will welcome twins in April.

Eddie and Anna have two young sons, Lewis and Billy.

There has also been another engagement in Crows ranks.

Forward Josh Jenkins proposed to long-time partner Hannah over the break.

Jenkins, who is recovering from finger surgery, posted a photo joking that he and his new fiancé had a ‘ring each’.

Jenkins joins good friend and teammate Tom Lynch in popping the question this offseason.

Recruit Bryce Gibbs is also newly engaged after proposing to girlfriend Lauren while on holiday in Fiji.

The next Crows wedding is that of defender Kyle Hartigan and fiancé Emily, who will be married in December. 

Andy Otten and Daniel Talia both tied the knot in October.
