“@rebeccajames_stylist was (and is) a warrior. I will never forget what she has been through for the past 9 months, and especially these last few days for our little family,” Mac added.

“Incredible strength. What woman. There will soon be a separate article about this.

“In the meantime, I just want to thank from the bottom of my heart @drmorris_sydneymotherandbaby (the rock star of the birthing service) and his team. I am the happiest man on the planet right now.

“If anyone needs me, my schedule at the moment will be amazed by Bec; looking at Margot with admiration; cry and repeat.

“I’m a dad !” concluded the mad dad.

Sam and Bec announced in April that they were expecting a baby, writing on Instagram, “Wow! Mini Mac is coming soon and Bec just can’t wipe the joy off his face,” followed by #DaddyMac.

Margot’s birth came a month after the excited parents-to-be hosted a baby shower with family and friends.

On August 14, Sam surprised Bec with the world’s largest Cheesymite scroll from Baker’s Delight, measuring 30cm wide by 25cm high.

During Sam’s speech, the scroll was delivered in a giant circular white box with pink and blue ribbons.

“The brief was that it had to be bigger than Bec’s head,” Sam told the crowd.

Bec looked shocked as she looked inside and pointed to the other side of the lid which bore a message that read, “Happy Birthday Rebecca! Love from Bakers Delight.

Bec held the giant scroll in front of her pregnant belly, showing her waistline.

Birth preparations

To prepare for the birth of “Baby Mac”, Sam took a prenatal class and, like Sam Mac, shared live updates throughout.

Mac appeared wide-eyed in the clip and said he would “skip dinner” after the two-and-a-half-hour zoom class.

“A big thank you to Bec for signing me up for this 2.5 hour prenatal zoom today,” he captioned the August TikTok.

Mac recorded himself listening to the session with “midwife Penny”, who gave instructions such as “small push, big push, small push, big push”.

Other comments heard from Penny include explanations of some of the events that occur during childbirth.

budding relationship

The new parents made their relationship “Instagram official” in early 2021, with the weatherman sending fans into a frenzy when he shared a cozy photo.

In a lengthy caption, the Channel 7 star revealed at the time that he met Bec after being “introduced on Instagram last year” by a mutual friend.

“Bec lives in Melb and I am in Syd so Victorian border restrictions meant it was illegal for us to meet in person,” he explained.

“This is where it gets cool. We quickly formed a great friendship. Insta chats, phone calls, Friday zoom glasses, we talked every day for almost six months!

Mac said it was “surreal” to finally meet Bec in person for a romantic dinner when border restrictions eased.

“At this point, I felt like I knew everything about her…unless she was interested in being more than friends,” he wrote.

“We knew each other so well, but also not at all.

“It’s not entirely relevant to the story, but I want the fact that she was 24 minutes late on record,” he joked.

The breakfast TV star added: ‘Eventually, over the course of a few Harry Potter marathons and a glass or two of Zonzo, we discovered that we both felt exactly the same.’

“We were so careful about ruining the friendship.”

In October 2021, the couple announced that they had purchased their first home together.

“’We bought a fucking house! In Sydney! We are already drinking our way through the pain as we calculate #Pray4Us stamp duty,” Sam captioned a photo on Instagram.
