Channel 7 sports commentator Hamish McLachlan, and his wife Sophie, recently welcomed their first child, and have named their daughter Milla Sylvie.
Sophie was left with reduced fertility after a car crash in 2001, and was told that she only had a 36 percent of conceiving, even with IVF. The McLachlans were successful in having Milla on their third attempt. Hamish and Sophie have been very open in discussing their difficulties conceiving, in order to give others hope, and to help break down the stigma attached to talking about fertility issues.
Hamish is the co-host of AFL Game Day, and calls AFL matches for Channel 7 and Triple M radio. He is also an anchor for the Australian Open tennis tournament, and calls the Spring Racing Carnival and polo matches on radio.
Sophie (nee Moore) and Hamish were married in 2010, on the McLachlan’s family property in South Australia.
