With a photo of two tiny feet in two knitted booties, TV host Sonia Kruger announced on Instagram the birth of her first child.
Kruger, 49, gave birth to baby girl Maggie Kruger Macpherson, who weighted 3.8kg, on Saturday morning, at the Mater hospital in Sydney.
Seconds after the photo of gorgeous Maggie was posted on Instagram, Kruger was flooded with messages of support.
Earlier this year Kruger, spoke publically about her joy at becoming pregnant at age 49, thanks to IVF and a very special donor.
The host of Channel Nine’s Mornings and Big Brother openly discussed her IVF journey that had at times been filled with heartache and anxiety.
Kruger and her husband, television executive, Craig McPherson, embarked on their IVF journey when she was 45. After several miscarriages and failed IVF attempts, Kruger was told she would require a donor egg.
Kruger finally became pregnant with the help of a friend who donated her eggs, and who will remain anonymous.
But no matter how a child is conceived, some things remain the same. Talking to her Mornings co-host David Campbell from her Sydney hospital bed, new mum Kruger gushed about her new baby: “She smells so good I could eat her.”
