Great news for model Megan Gale and her partner, AFL player Shaun Hampson.

“Our precious little 3.87kg (8.5 pound) man came into the world yesterday the 13th of May 2014 at 4.47pm,” she posted on Instagram.

“Needless to say Shaun and I are completely smitten with him and we’re beyond blessed to have such a healthy baby.”


Although she says she’s strugging to describe how it felt to finally meet her new little obsession in person, we think she captures that amazing feeling perfectly:  “Words can’t even come close to describing how we’re feeling right now and more so, how it felt to see, hear, hold and meet this beautiful soul for the first time. We love you little man and are SO thrilled to be your parents.”

It took them a few days to decide but the little boy has a name – River Alan Thomas Hampson.

“River is my Mum’s maiden name, Alan after my Dad, Thomas for Shaun’s Dad and the last name just like his Daddy’s.”

While pregnant, Gale, 38, told Who magazine she considered the significant age gap between her and Hampson, 26, when they were pondering whether to try for a baby. “Him being the age he was I did wonder about it. But he’s the most mature guy I’ve dated, he’s an old soul.”

They found out their baby’s gender while he was still in utero but decided to keep it secret.
