Singer Wes Carr, and his wife, actress Charlotte Gregg, welcomed their first child on November 5, and have named their son Willow Harrison. Willow Carr was born in Sydney at 11.49 pm, and weighed 4.2 kg (9lb 4oz).
Wes was already a professional musician with his first album just out when he won the sixth season of Australian Idol in 2008. Since then he has released another album, seen his first single, You, debut at #1, and announced his new independent music project, Buffalo.
Charlotte has appeared in many TV dramas, including Underbelly, Home and Away, Offspring and Lowdown. She met Wes at a barbecue in 2008, and the couple were married last April, honeymooning in Europe.
There’s been several celebrities this year who have used a unisex name for their son, even though it is popular for girls. This one comes with an inbuilt boyish nickname – Will.
