Gary Ablett Jr. has captured a sweet moment of his two-year-old son Levi getting a haircut for the first time since lockdown.

The AFL superstar shared two photos to Instagram – before and after his young son’s cut.

‘Goodbye lockdown hair,’ the 37-year-old dual Brownlow Medallist captioned the post with a scissors emoji.

In the first image, Levi is seen sitting on his father’s lap wearing a hairdressing cape

Levi was diagnosed with a rare degenerative illness last year, after months of Gary and his wife Jordan searching for answers.

In an interview with podcast The Significant Others in March, Jordan heartbreakingly revealed Levi’s illness carries a short life expectancy.

She said it took a long time for Levi to be diagnosed with the unspecified disease, and detailed the devastation she and Gary felt after learning the condition was ‘life threatening’.  

‘I just remember sitting with Gaz in that meeting and when they said it I just remember absolutely breaking down,’ she said.

‘There is a very short life expectancy, which is why I constantly say to people when they ask about Levi that we are literally just taking it day by day because we have no idea what the future holds,’ she continued.  

After seeing a series of paediatricians, Jordan said it was the Geelong Football Club’s team doctor who finally put them in contact with the right person.

She said this new paediatrician ‘got the ball rolling’, and after months of concerns, the couple, who married in 2016, finally had some answers.

Jordan said Levi’s condition has only made the family more aware of how precious every moment they have together is. 

Gary and Jordan share two children together: Levi and Grace. 

They welcomed their daughter Grace just last month.
