AFL footballer Clancee Pearce, and his partner Jessica Samarelli, welcomed their first child on January 17, and have named their daughter Memphis Rose. Clancee plays for the Fremantle Dockers, and is only the fourth player of Indian descent to play in the AFL. Memphis Pearce’s birth was announced on the Fremantle Football Club’s Facebook page. I understand that the name Memphis was suggested by Clancee.

Racehorse trainer Kristen Buchanan, and her partner Andrew Marshall, welcomed their daughter Mackenzie seven months ago. Originally from Perth, Kristen has been based on the Central Coast for several years.
