Channel 10 news presenter, Rebecca Morse, and her husband, Channel 10 news reporter James Wakelin, welcomed their third daughter on August 17. Her name is Frankie, and she weighed 3.7 kg at birth. Frankie Wakelin joins big sisters Grace, aged 8, and Milla, aged 2.
Rebecca will be taking the rest of the year off on maternity leave, and will be back on TV early in 2012. She feels their family is complete now.
This is the second celebrity baby girl called Frankie for this year; the first one was the daughter of swimmer Michael Klim. Frankie Klim and Frankie Wakelin are both the third child in their families.
UPDATE: Rebecca revealed to an Adelaide gossip columnist that Grace and Milla helped choose their sister’s name. Frankie was one of the names on their shortlist, and when they read it to the girls, their eyes lit up, so they knew it was the right name.
