Radio host Matt Acton from SeaFM, and his wife Esther, welcomed their first child together on February 20, and have named their son Zander Jeremiah. Zander Acton was born at Pindara Private Hospital on the Gold Coast at 9.23 pm, weighing 3.57 kg (just under 8 lb), and measuring 51 cm. Zander joins big brother Ethan, aged 11. Matt and Esther chose the name Zander early in the pregnancy, but kept it a secret. If anyone asked what the baby’s name would be, they told them Felix – a name they liked, but which had become too common in their area for them to use.
Artist David Bromley, and his wife Yuge, welcomed their daughter Wen last year. Wen is a Chinese name meaning “culture, literacy”. David has had more than 30 solo exhibitions, and is considered one of Australia’s most collectible artists. Yuge is a former criminal lawyer who has become a fashion designer. The Bromleys own a store called In This Street in Byron Bay.
Sydney businesswoman and former reality TV contestant Yasmin Dale welcomed her daughter Millie last year. Yasmin took part in the 2006 Channel Ten reality show, Yasmin’s Getting Married, which was supposed to find Yasmin a husband, and arrange and pay for her wedding. The show was axed after just one week, so Yasmin never did get married. She separated from Millie’s father, and is currently dating: she has no plans to marry in the future, and if it happens, it won’t be on television.
