Kyle Sandilands and wife Tegan Kynaston have thrown an epic first birthday party for their son Otto, with the radio personality revealing the bash cost a whopping $25,000.

The star-studded event was hosted at the couple’s Bellevue Hill mansion in Sydney over the weekend, with around 60 guests, including Kyle’s co-host Jackie ‘O’ Henderson joining the celebrations.








While the cost for the jungle-themed birthday party seems extravagant, it’s nothing compared to the reported one million dollars the pair spent on their wedding in April.

“It’s only $25,000. It’s a watered-down type of party,” Kyle explained on air. He said Tegan spent cash on, “the lollies, the bonbonniere, and the plates and all these weird tablecloths. These are eight foot tablecloths.”

Photos of the party were shared on social media, drawing both praise and negative comments.

“Utterly ridiculous! That’s a parent party and not about kids,” one person commented.

“Seriously and children are starving…” said another.

While others loved the over-the-top celebration.

“Otto’s first birthday shi*s on all my party’s as a kid… number cake, bowls of lollies, party pies and sausage rolls…. Absolutely stunning ???? if I was loaded I would do the same for my kids! So many jealous people out in the world.”

Kyle and Tegan’s Baby Joy

The couple welcomed their first baby in dramatic fashion in August last year, with the radio host told while live on air that Tegan was in labour.

The 51-year-old got a call while on air presenting KIIS FM’s The Kyle and Jackie O Show, and walked out so he could be with his fiancee, who gave birth to their boy, Otto.

“Guys, I am broadcasting from home for a reason,” he explained on-air this morning. “And that reason seems to have raised its head now.”

“I think I might have to leave the show and go to the hospital,” he continued. “Guys, I am so sorry. I feel very unprepared,” he said. “[But] I’ve got to run. I don’t want to seem like I’m abandoning you, but I need to be there for my child.”

The couple had already revealed the name they’d chosen for their little boy, but it didn’t go down well with everyone when they first announced it.

The Sydney radio host shared his unborn son’s name live on air some months ago, telling co-host Jackie O’Henderson that his boy will be named Otto.

Jackie explained she was hoping her 11-year-old daughter Catalina (Kitty), would also become a radio presenter – and team up with Kyle’s son.

“I was thinking, because Kyle’s having a boy, in 20 years’ time, like, it’s the, ‘Kitty and whatever-you’re-going-to-call-your-kid Show’,” Jackie said.

Kyle then decided to reveal his boy’s name, saying, “Otto. That’s what we’re going to call him.”

But he explained not everyone is on board with the unique name. “I don’t think it’s gone down too well with the family. Even Tegan’s mum goes, ‘Oh, there’s no need to rush into a name.’ And my auntie Jill went, ‘What sort of stupid name is that?'”

Kyle and Tegan’s Luxe Gender Reveal

The couple went all out for their gender reveal party, hiring a superyacht on Sydney Harbour and staging an extravagant plane flyover.

Sparing no expense, the shock jock and his 36-year-old fiancee arranged for their baby’s gender to be revealed via a plane flyover which released coloured smoke. Watch the gender reveal here:

The couple recently revealed that they’re expecting their first baby, live on-air. The radio host, 50, made the announcement on The Kyle and Jackie O Show, with Tegan by his side.

“We’ve been talking because we’re going to get married at some stage obviously, you know, what’s important to us,” Kyle explained. “My hours and stuff at work doesn’t always … you know I gotta get up super early and it’s not everyone’s cup of tea, so we thought where are we gonna go in our life?

“What can I do at 50-years-old that I’ve never done in my life before?”

Kyle Sandilands baby

Kyle then played an audio clip of a baby’s heartbeat, and screamed, “I’m having a baby BABY!”

His co-host then gushed with congratulations, with Jackie saying, “I never thought I’d see the day that Kyle would become a dad, and I’m so pleased for you both!”

Tegan then shared that she’s been struggling with morning sickness, and has only been able to keep down carbs.

The couple, who has been dating since 2019, revealed they are 12 weeks along and are due in August. They already have boy and girl baby names picked out, with Kyle saying he was hoping for “either a girl… or a little gay son”.

  • When you have too much money and not enough social conscience.


  • I am sure all the parents would have enjoyed the party – and also sure that Kyle’s son couldn’t have cared less.


  • They can choose as they please – its their money!


  • They can afford to spend that on a Birthday party but what they spent on the Gender reveal was more of a waste of money than the birthday party. As long as Otto had a good time at his first Birthday then that’s what matters more.


  • Clearly because they can. And I’ve no doubt Kyle will give Otto all the things he didn’t have.


  • While he wont remember it they will and I”m sure there will be lots of photos. Whether you like Kyle or not there’s no denying he’s a proud dad…

    • Yes that’s true, he sure shows to be a proud dad


  • I mean it looks amazing. But way over the top for a first birthday party. Wondering how the next birthday party will look like. Stay tuned.


  • So fancy! When you’ve got good money, you can go nuts!


  • Lots of rude negativity all from strangers that don’t even know them too. Seriously the party looks super fun who cares how much they spent on the party, it looks fun up to every parent how much they spend on entertainment. Lots of very nasty jealous comments. Lots of fun memories and effort from mum and dad and I’m sure family and friend helpers all to ensure the celebration which is there child’s first birthday was well enjoyed and heaps of fun. Looks amazing!!


  • He is ridiculous, so what could you expect. As long as the


  • At the end of the day it’s their money, but the kid is not going to remember and they could have had a cheap party and donated the rest to a charity in his honour.


  • So unnecessary and wasteful. Ridiculous.

    • Yes, giving it to a charity or to the poor and needy would be a better use


  • Utterly ridiculous, just like him


  • A one year old won’t remember a thing from a birthday party, so I agree that the party is for the parents and their need to impress. But hey, when you have the money the first birthday of your child is a good reason to throw it around


  • Ridiculous, absolutely ridiculous


  • He also have a heap of toys away and also paid for a whole family to go to Disneyland, he did some good as well as throw his son an awesome birthday party, he may not remember it, but there’s photos to show what a cool day he had


  • What a ridiculous waste of money, this really makes me sad. People like this should donate to charities in need, people are homeless & starving, animals in shelters need help, our native animals & forests need help.
