Radio host Michael “Wippa” Wipfli, and his wife Lisa, welcomed their first child on February 6 and have named their son Theodore George Jack, to be known as “Teddy“. Michael announced Teddy’s name on air on February 9. Michael is co-host on Nova FM’s Fitzy and Wippa, with fellow celebrity dad, Ryan “Fitzy” Fitzgerald. Lisa apparently liked the name Hugo, but Michael vetoed it because Ryan’s oldest son is named Hewston, nicknamed “Hewie“, and he feared the mockery should the radio partners have sons named Hewie and Hugo.
