Shane Warne’s lookalike son Jackson takes a break in the Las Vegas heat during outing with girlfriend Kiah after making his late father proud by winning big in poker tournament

Shane Warne’s son Jackson was seen relaxing in Las Vegas on Sunday with his girlfriend Kiah Broadsmith.

The couple appeared to go sight-seeing after Jackson won big in a professional poker tournament. 

The 23-year-old son of late legendary leg spinner Shane Warne sported a casual outfit in the sweltering 45 degree heat.

He donned a navy shirt and shorts paired with a Star Wars tote bag. 

His girlfriend Kiah, 21, also opted for comfort in a plain white shirt and black shorts.

Jackson’s muscly biceps, toned legs and blonde mullet made him a doppelgänger of his father in the early ’90s. 

He was seen engrossed in a conversation with Kiah as they both stood out the front of their hotel.

Jackson and Kiah are staying at a Las Vegas resort while he competes in the World Series of Poker tournament. 

He has thus far won over US$82,900 (AUD $121,400), and he was originally meant to be competing in the tournament alongside father Shane. 

Jackson made good on his vow to continue his late father’s legacy by winning big at his first solo poker game since the leg spinner’s death four months ago.

Shane, who was a keen poker player and would bring his son to tournaments around the world, died from a heart attack in March while on holiday in Thailand. He was 52.

 His son reminisced last Tuesday about playing poker with Shane four years ago at the Vegas World Series of Poker championships, before revealing he would be competing at the 2022 tournament in Shane’s honour.

Meanwhile, Jackson’s mum Simone Callahan has praised her son for competing in the the tournament.

The mother of three shared a slew of photographs on Instagram on Sunday as she congratulated Jackson on his win.

‘This year Jackson went with his Dad watching from heaven and I know how proud he will be of Jackson,’ Simone said.
