25-1809295-scn100812can_t460Media personality Chrissie Swan, and her partner, Chris Saville, welcomed their daughter Peggy on March 26, and her birth was announced on Channel Ten’s The Project. Peggy Swan Saville was born in Melbourne at 9.15 am, and joins big brothers Leo and Kit; Kit’s birth was reported on the blog in 2011.

UPDATE: Chrissie has revealed that her daughter’s name was originally going to be Josephine, and was actually named Josephine for twenty minutes before she and Chris decided to be “brave” and go with something “a little bit different”.

I think they made the right choice, because while royal Josephine is trending upwards like nobody’s business, retro Peggy is bang on for style, as short forms of Margaret become ever more fashionable.
