The joy of having a newcomer in the Butt family here was short-lived as former Pakistan captain Salman Butt was found guilty of spot-fixing by a London court minutes before he became a father for the second time.

Butt's wife gave birth to a baby boy, their second child, minutes before the cricketer was found guilty of spot-fixing by a London court. The couple has an elder daughter.

Butt's father Zulfiqar confirmed the news of the new born baby in their family.

“My son Salman was blessed with a baby boy 30 minutes before the verdict came,” Zulfiqar was quoted as saying by the Pakistani media. “We are extremely sad that my son has been found guilty. We hope god will bring him out of this trouble because these are very difficult times for him and the family,” he added.
