Two sets of former contestants from Channel Seven’s cooking game show, My Kitchen Rules, have recently welcomed new babies.

Dan and Steph Mulheron welcomed their daughter Emmy Mae in April [pictured]. Dan and Steph, from Hervey Bay in Queensland, won series 4 in 2013, taking home the $250 000 prize. The popular couple went on the show having already spent their savings on several failed IVF attempts, and the prize money helped give them another chance, falling pregnant after just one round of treatment. The Mulherons, who earned the title of the “sausage kings” for their snagger skills, have also opened their own cafe and written a cookbook together.

Annie and Jason Chesworth welcomed their son Theodore, known as “Teddy“, on March 5. Annie and Jason, from New South Wales, were contestants on series 5 in 2014. Affectionately known as “Mr and Mrs Cheese”, the aptly named Chesworths help run a handmade cheese factory and cafe in Muswellbrook in the Hunter Valley, owned by Jason’s dairy farmer parents.
