Her dad might be one of the country's top cricketers, but it's the golf course where Martin Guptill and daughter Harley look ready to team up, thanks to one such cute gift to the family.

Black Caps batsman Guptill and his wife - Sky Sport presenter Laura McGoldrick - welcomed their first child, Harley Louise Guptill, into the world on Wednesday, and there have been some lovely gifts for the newborn, seen on the couple's social media posts.

One which takes the cake of cuteness is from Holden Golf World - a programme McGoldrick fronts - with Harley's own little pink set of golf clubs and a top to match, which reads 'crawl, walk, golf'.

In a post on September 4 - exactly a month before Harley's arrival - proud dad-to-be Guptill is seen on the course showing off the new kit, alongside his own.

It might be the start of a cross-code battle to woo the baby, with Guptill's employer, New Zealand Cricket, having also sent a nice gift the family's way, before dad readies to fly out to India for New Zealand's limited-overs series, which begins on October 22.
