The 36-year-old radio host and former Home And Away star Kate Ritchie welcomed her first-born child in Sydney on Sunday.
Posting the announcement on her Facebook wall, Kate shared the moniker, writing: ‘WHAT A BEAUTIFUL WEEK it has been with our daughter, Mae. Thank you to everyone who has wished the three(!) of us well.’
Earlier in the week Kate’s colleagues at radio station NOVA, Tim Blackwell and Marty Sheargold, announced Kate had delivered her little girl, and also had suggested their ideas for baby names.
Speaking on the afternoon shift of their radio show last week, Tim and Marty broke the news, saying, ‘Our team member Kate Ritchie, who’s not here…she left us on Friday to go and have a baby…She’s already had a baby girl!’
