State Labor MP Curtis Pitt, and his wife Kerry, welcomed their third child and second daughter, Layla, way back in May. Layla joins big brother Tristan, aged 2. Tristan and Layla have an older sister called Isabel, who was stillborn.

Curtis is the Minister for Disabilities, Mental Health and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Partnerships in the Queensland State Government. He represents the seat of Mulgrave, which was also held by his father, Warren Pitt.

Curtis is a patron of SANDS (Stillbirth and Neonatal Death Support). Last year Curtis and Kerry launched the Ride for Isabel charity bike ride to raise money for SANDS. After receiving such necessary support after their own devastating loss, they are determined to give something back.
