St John of God hospital must have been busy last night, because down the hall from the Embleys, Channel 7 journalist and news presenter Emmy Kubainski, and her husband, lawyer Tom Fotheringham, were greeting their first child, a daughter called Allegra Eve. Allegra weighed 7 pounds (3.17 kg).

Emmy and Tom met while studying at Queensland University of Technology in Brisbane, and moved to Perth in 2005 after Emmy gained a cadetship with the ABC. The couple were married in Margaret River three years ago.
