Former child performer Elly-May Barnes, and her partner Liam Conboy, welcomed their first child on September 23 and have named their son Dylan James. Dylan’s middle name may be in honour of his grandfather.
Elly-May is the youngest daughter of rock star Jimmy Barnes, front man for Cold Chisel, and his wife Jane Mahoney (born Jane Dejakasaya in Thailand). Elly-May suffered a brain haemorrhage after being born prematurely, which left her with cerebral palsy, giving her chronic pain and a limp in one leg. As a child, Elly-May was a member of the children’s pop group the Tin Lids, along with her sisters Mahalia, Eliza-Jane, and Jackie. They released three albums in the early 1990s. Elly-May’s partner Liam works in the hospitality industry.
