Former Hi-5 star Lauren Brant and her AFL legend husband Barry Hall have welcomed their third baby, after a heartbreaking family loss earlier this year.

Their third baby boy was born late last month, Lauren revealed on Instagram. “Our beautiful baby boy arrived Earth Side 26/10/2021, at 6.18am as a perfect 3.535kg and 51cm bundle. We have been in a complete love bubble of newborn smells, noises, kisses and cuddles.

“Miller and Houston are besotted with their baby brother and our hearts are just SO full. Thank you for your well-wishes, love and support while we took some time off the grid … and now be prepared for lots of baby squish on your feed.”

A baby name with a special connection

The couple married on February 17 this year, just weeks before Lauren’s sister-in-law Sandra passed away from cancer. Lauren revealing the emotional details behind their new bundle’s name: Samson Andy Hall.

“This baby boy gave us the strength to appreciate, respect and surrender to both the gift and impermanence of life. We were blessed with him a few days before our beautiful Sandra passed. He was the light through our grief. In choosing a ‘name’ we wanted to honour our son’s special connection to Sandy.

“We experienced a deeply spiritual week of strong messages from her – through symbols of sunshine and sunflowers that were being told to us via Miller and Houston. Out of nowhere, and clear as daylight the name Samson came to us. The meaning and origin of Samson is ‘sun’ and Biblically, he was endowed with strength.

“Samson’s middle name is Andy, which is in honour of his daddy whose middle name is Andrew. A special little touch, when written with his first initial reads: S. Andy.

“Samson Andy Hall, our darling third son, is just as beautiful, strong and special as his name is. We are so in love.”

Samson is a little brother for Miller, 4 and Houston, 2.
