Former pop singer Nikki Webster, and her husband Matthew McMah, welcomed their first child early this year and have named their daughter Skylah.

Nicole, or “Nikki” started out in show business at the age of five, performing in pantomimes, musicals, and commercials. She came to prominence at the age of 13, when she was chosen for a starring role in the opening ceremony of the 2000 Sydney Olympics. She then signed a recording contract with BMG, and released her first single, Strawberry Kisses, in 2001. Her début album, Follow Your Heart, went platinum, and she received a John O’Keefe Encouragement Award at the 2001 Mo Awards. Her second album was also a success, and she was chosen as the face of a cosmetics line for young teens, and designed her own range of children’s clothing. She competed in Dancing With The Stars at the age of 17. As an adult, Nikki tried to give herself a more mature image, controversially appearing on the front cover of FHM magazine on her 18th birthday, and making #7 on their 100 Sexiest Women of 2005 list. She also performed at the Sydney gay and lesbian dace party, Sleaze Ball in 2007. Since 2008, she and her brother Scott have managed performing arts schools to help children get into the entertainment industry, where she teaches dancing.

Matthew works in the aviation industry. He and Nikki met on a blind date on Australia Day in 2010, and were married in 2012.
