“His sister Faye had been his biggest supporter as he was caged – often rallying for his freedom. ”
Faye posed in a form-fitting dress as Johnson wrapped his arm around her in front of a giant 27 balloon.
The nonce traded his prison scrubs for a white shirt, baby blue jacket and white trainers.
And his little girl Ayla in his arm worn golden shoes and a frilly pink dress, matching the flowery backdrop.
Family friends praised the photo, saying the trio looked “gorgeous” and sending a handful of likes on Facebook.
Throughout his time in the slammer, Faye had regularly shared updates counting down to his release.
And even on New Year’s Day – 10 minutes after midnight – she posted: “I can finally say my brother is home this year.”
Johnson’s daughter also gotten taken on visits to see her dad after his conviction.
He was released under the cover of darkness and driven home by his dad Dave.
Johnson has signed the sex offender register and will remain on it for 15 years, has to tell cops if goes abroad, and register his bank details with them in case he pays to watch online porn.
He is reportedly hoping to make a return to the footie pitch – but accepts he will never be welcome in the top flight of the English game.
The former Man City and Middlesbrough player had groomed his victim after meeting when she was just 14 – waiting for him outside Sunderland games to get his autograph.
He would then strike up a relationship with her, before they engaged in sexual activity in his £80,000 Range Rover – just three weeks after his girlfriend Stacey Flounders had given birth to their daughter, now 4.
Johnson has appeared to show no remorse for his crimes – boasting he should have raped her on a video filmed in prison.
He moaned he would have only got a caution if he wasn’t famous – dismissing his sick crime as “f*** all”.
The nonce claimed he thought she was 17 or 18 – and made cruel gestures about the underage girl’s breasts.
Johnson is reportedly looking play abroad – plotting to resurrect his career in Turkey, China or the Middle East.
