Host of morning TV show, The Circle, Chrissie Swan, and her partner Chris Saville, welcomed their second child yesterday, Tuesday August 2, at 5.30 pm. He was born at St Vincent’s Hospital in Melbourne, and weighed 3 kg (6 lb 6 oz). Chrissie Tweeted the news, and the baby’s birth was also announced on The Circle‘s Facebook page. Chrissie and Chris called their son Kit, and he joins big brother Leo, aged 2 and a half.
Chrissie first became known as a popular contestant on reality TV show, Big Brother, in 2003; she came runner up to Regina (Reggie) Bird. After working in breakfast radio, she became one of the four hosts of The Circle last year. This year, she won Most Popular New Female Talent at the TV Week Logie Awards.
Chrissie and Chris have been together for four years, and Chrissie affectionately refers to her partner as “The Chippie”. I’m not sure whether that means he’s literally a carpenter or not.
Kit can be a short form of Christopher, so seems like a cute and fun way to be named after his dad, and maybe his mum as well, who also has a “Chris” name.
