Singer David Campbell, and his wife Lisa, welcomed twins yesterday January 12, and have named them William David and Elizabeth Ann, to be known as “Billy” and “Betty“. The twins join big brother Leo, aged 4 and a half. William has dad’s name for his middle name.
David began his career in the 1990s, and in 1997 took his cabaret show to New York, where he became the youngest performer to headline at the Rainbow & Stars room. He has performed in musicals such as Les Misérables, South Pacific, and Guys and Dolls, and provided the singing voice for Joseph in the animated film, Joseph: King of Dreams. In 2001 he took the lead role in Australian musical Shout! The Legend of the Wild One, based on the life of Johnny O’Keefe. He has released nine albums, one of which went gold, and three of which went platinum. From 2009-2011 he was Artistic Director of the Adelaide Cabaret Festival, and is their most successful director to date. He has often appeared on television, and is currently co-host of Channel Nine’s Mornings; he is also a weekend afternoon radio host on smoothfm. David is the son of Jimmy Barnes, so the twins are more grandchildren for the rock star.
Lisa (nee Hewitt) is a producer, originally from Britain. She and David married in 2008, and run their own company, which produce’s David’s tours, music, and television projects.

Billy and Betty are too cliche in my opinion. I agree with the previous poster. I would have chosen a nickname for Elizabeth that didn’t rhyme with Billy.
William David and Elizabeth Ann are fine names separately and together. Billy sounds fresh again, with most Williams (in the USA at least) going by Will or Liam. But for me, they missed on “Betty”. I would have called Elizabeth Ann, “Betsy” — love that name! I have both a friend and a friend’s daughter who are Elizabeth Ann (Anne in the latter case) called Betsy.
