Australian model Megan Gale and her partner, AFL player Shaun Hampson, are new parents after welcoming a baby boy yesterday afternoon.
Gale released snaps of the little one on Instagram, sharing details of her son’s birth with her more than 140,000 followers.
After keeping fans waiting for news on the name, Megan released a photo captioned:
“We finally chose a name for our little man – River Alan Thomas Hampson. Rivers is my Mums maiden name, Alan after my Dad, Thomas for Shaun’s Dad and the last name just like his Daddy’s.”❤️
Earlier, the new mum captioned another black and white photo:
“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.
“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.”
Gale, 38, and Richmond player Hampson, 26, got together in late 2011 and the David Jones ambassador announced her pregnancy in November last year.
