Sonia Kruger Gives Birth — Find Out Her Baby's Name!
Sonia Kruger is a mother! The TV personality welcomed her first child, a girl, on Saturday morning at the Mater Hospital in North Sydney, and named her Maggie Kruger McPherson. She announced the news on Instagram on Saturday afternoon with a black and white image of Maggie's little feet, writing, "Guess what...they fit! Little Maggie Kruger McPherson born this morning. #happybirthday #babygirl." The socks are actually the same ones Sonia used to share the news she was pregnant on social media.
Sonia, the beloved co-host of Channel Nine's Mornings and Big Brother, announced she was pregnant in Aug. 2014 at the age of 48. She was open about the fact that she and her long-term partner, television producer Craig McPherson (who already has six children from a previous relationship), had fallen pregnant through IVF with the help of an egg donor after suffering several miscarriages.
Sonia continued to work through her pregnancy as the host of Big Brother, and showed off many glamorous maternity looks during the series' eviction shows. There has actually been a baby boom on the set of Mornings as Sonia's co-host, David Campbell, recently welcomed twins with his wife Lisa.
Congratulations to Sonia and Craig!
