Lauren Newton Announces She’s Pregnant With Her Fifth Child!
Exciting news for Bert and Patti Newton with the announcement that daughter Lauren is pregnant with her fifth child.
The 38 year old and her husband Matt Welsh are said to be over the moon with the happy news. Newton took to Instagram to share an adorable photo of her four kids while announcing her fifth.
Clearly grandma Patti is beside herself with joy as she too shared the news on Instagram a few days ago. “Lauren and Matt are expecting their 5th child in December. We are all just so excited especially the kids. How lucky are we, can’t wait,” Patti wrote.
Lauren Newton, who is Bert and Patti’s youngest child and husband Matt Welsh, a former world champion swimmer are already parents to four children, two boys and two girls (who we think look exactly like their famous grandpa!)
Bert faced intense criticism after his appearance at the 60th annual TV WEEK Logie Awards recently after using a gay slur in his speech as well as insinuating his friend Graham Kennedy was sexually harassing young men. Newton said the late Graham, who kept his sexuality a closely guarded secret, enjoyed “mentoring” young talent behind closed doors. In a time of the #metoo campaign which is all about not tolerating sexual harassment of any kind, the comments were not well received and immediately sparked a furore on social media.
