“Wolf Odin Watson – no words, just pure bliss,” she wrote.
The enthusiastic parents announced for the first time that they were expecting their second child in a heartwarming Mother’s Day post in May.
Slaghekke shared a photo of her ultrasound and wrote, “Join the squad this November”.
The couple’s final arrival follows the birth of their daughter Juniper Hendricks Watson in September 2018.
Virginia met Jobe back in 2016 in New York, where the AFL player lived, after being banned for two years because of the Essendon Football Club supplements scandal.
The couple crossed paths in a coffee shop and Watson chased her down the street to give her his phone number on a napkin.
They moved to Melbourne where Watson now works in property management and Slaghekke is studying biomedicine and clinical psychology.

Watson was Essendon captain for five years between 2010 and 2015 before becoming embroiled in one of the club’s most famous drug scandals.
He was one of 34 players banned after it was revealed they had used the banned substance AOD-9604 during the 2012 AFL season.
The sports star admitted taking the drug but said he was informed by the club that the substance was legal.
Watson was suspended from the 2016 season along with other players and had to return his 2012 Brownlow Medal, which was awarded to the best player of the season.
During his suspension, Watson moved to New York, where he worked as a barista, and met the current mother of his children.
The son of another former AFL greatness and now media character Tim Watson then returned to play the 2017 AFL season but is now out of the game.
Slaghekke also shared the good news on her Instagram account with a photo of Wolf huddled against her chest
