Dan and Honor Carter are expecting their first child.

The first couple of New Zealand sport Dan and Honor Carter have announced via social network site Twitter they are expecting their first child.

All Blacks first five-eighth Dan Carter tweeted the news from London a minute after his wife and former Black Sticks hockey player had broken it, prompting waves of congratulatory messages on social media.

"Time to share our exciting news... @DanCarter & I are expecting our first child!" Honor Carter tweeted.

"I am 21 weeks & we are both very excited :) #BabyCarter."

The pair were married at a private ceremony near Blenheim last December.

Dan Carter is in doubt for the All Blacks' final Test of the year against England at Twickenham because of an Achilles tendon injury.
