Megan Gale gave birth to a beautiful baby boy on Tuesday! The Australian model shared the happy news on Instagram, writing, "Our precious little 3.87kg (8.5 pound) man came into the world yesterday the 13th of May 2014 at 4.47pm. Needless to say Shaun and I are completely smitten with him and we're beyond blessed to have such a healthy baby. Still deciding on a name so watch this space. 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." She also posted a sweet black and white image of her son's hand.
It didn't take long for Megan and her partner, AFL player Shaun Hampson, to decide on a name: River Alan Thomas Hampson. Megan explained how they came to choose the moniker when she shared another sweet photo of the bub, posting, "Rivers is my Mums maiden name, Alan after my Dad, Thomas for Shaun's Dad and the last name just like his Daddy's."
In the lead-up to giving birth, Megan toned down her work commitments and nested in Melbourne. It was her first pregnancy, and she celebrated it with some beautiful magazine shoots, including a nude portrait for the cover of Marie Claire. She said it was "daunting" to be pregnant at 38, and has said she'll take a further six months off after the baby's birth.
Congratulations to Megan and Shaun!
