Geoff Huegill, and his wife Sara, welcomed their second daughter on Australia Day, and have reportedly named her Gigi. The name doesn’t seem to have been publicly announced by the Huegills, but they got into a spot of legal bother, and during the reporting of it, it was mentioned that their youngest daughter is named Gigi. The Huegills eldest daughter is named Mila; Mila’s birth was announced on the blog.
Jockey Kristy Banks, and her husband Dale Groves, welcomed their first child on September 6 last year, and named their son Nash. Before Nash was even born, Kristy bought him his own miniature pony named Gordie. Kristy was paralysed in a horse riding accident in 2011, but still races horses, and hopes to regain the use of her legs one day. During Kristy’s pregnancy, Dale raised $3000 for Spinal Cure Australia by growing a beard for the entire nine months.
