George Calombaris is a father after his partner, Natalie Tricarico, gave birth to a boy yesterday morning. He has been given the name James George and weighed 3.26kg. A spokeswoman for Network Ten confirmed the news, saying, “Everyone is happy and dad is over the moon. They are happy and well.” Matt Preston also tweeted about the news: “Brilliant day: FIlmed with @SimonPalomares for CH31 and -even better - got to welcome James George into the world. VERY HAPPY ABOUT THAT! !” James’ birth caps off another popular series of MasterChef for the judge, who is currently enjoying a quick break before the announcement of this series’ winner is filmed live on Sunday, August 7.
