Television presenter Brodie Harper, and her husband Heath Meldrum, welcomed their first child on November 6 (Melbourne Cup Day), and have named their daughter Jessica. Two years ago, Brodie was diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome and underwent fertility treatment, which was ultimately successful, resulting in baby Jessica.

Brodie is a model who has appeared in Madison, Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar. She is a presenter on the Channel 9 travel show Postcards, and fills in as a weather presenter on the station’s news report. A regular reporter and commentator for sporting events such as the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival, this year Brodie was the face of the the Mornington Cup, and is an ambassador for The Hilton in Melbourne.

Heath is also a model, and a personal trainer with his own business, NRG Fitness. He and Brodie first met in a crowded restaurant, after they caught each’s gaze, and were married in 2008, afterwards honeymooning in Thailand.
