TV fitness coach Shannan Ponton, and his wife Kylie, welcomed their first child yesterday July 2, and have named their son Maximus Colin. Maximus Ponton was born at 8.24 am and weighed 3.9 kg (around 8 and a half pounds). It seems he will be called Maxi for short. The news was announced on Shannan’s Facebook page.

Shannan is one of the personal trainers from the Channel Ten weight-loss reality show, The Biggest Loser, and first joined the show in 2007. His first book, Hard ‘n’ Up, was published earlier this year.

Kylie (nee Stray) has a background working in sport, and is Shannan’s personal assistant. She and Shannan were married in a beach wedding in 2010, and then honeymooned in Bali.
