Bec and Lleyton's baby lobs in

From: AAP

November 29, 2005

BEC Cartwright and Lleyton Hewitt have welcomed the birth of their first child, a girl, their publicist said today.

"Lleyton and Bec Hewitt are pleased to announce the overnight arrival of their first child, a healthy baby girl," Rob Aivatoglou said.

The baby was born at Sydney's North Shore Private Hospital at 1.45 am (AEDT). "At this stage Lleyton and Bec have not announced a name for their new arrival," Mr Aivatoglou said.

"Mother and baby are both doing extremely well. Lleyton and Bec are absolutely thrilled.

"Most importantly, everything went smoothly and mother and daughter are well.

"Bec and Lleyton very much look forward to taking their daughter home in the coming days."

Mr Aivatoglou said the couple had no further comment other than to thank the public for their "generous support" in recent weeks.

"They have genuinely appreciated the thoughts of well wishes as this most exciting time in their lives has approached," he said.

Bec, 22, and Lleyton, 24, met five years ago at a Starlight Foundation charity tennis day.

But they began dating only late last year and became engaged six weeks later, in late January.

Hewitt popped the question on the night of his loss in the final of the Australian Open.

Their engagement came less than four months after Hewitt's break-up with former tennis world number one Kim Clijsters, and followed Cartwright's four-year romance with Home and Away co-star Beau Brady.

The pair later announced they had purchased a palatial home on Sydney's northern beaches and married at the Sydney Opera House in July.

The couple have sold the story rights to the birth to women's magazine Woman's Day.

Previously, the pair had sold the story of their engagement and pregnancy to competitor New Idea.

2000-1 odds Hewitt bub marrying royalty

Date: 29/11/05


She's barely had time to open her eyes but Lleyton and Bec's bub has already been linked to the future king of Denmark.

Sportingbet Australia on Tuesday afternoon released 2,000-1 odds that Crown Princess Mary and Crown Prince Frederik's first child would marry Lleyton and Bec's daughter by 2035.

The Danish prince was born on October 15 and will be named at his christening on January 21.

Baby Hewitt, dubbed the "princess heir of Aussie tennis" by Sportingbet, was born at Sydney's North Shore Private Hospital at 1.45am (AEDT) on Tuesday.

One Sportingbet punter has already profited off the two births, winning a mixed doubles wager by guessing the correct sexes for both babies.

The anonymous Tasmanian punter placed the bet in May when the market was worth $1.72.

Lleyton and Bec's baby girl paid out at $1.92 to those who had a bet on the gender.

Did anyone record the news reporting of the birth & can they put it up on the forum? Unfortunately, it wasn't announced here in Britain, well not that i know of, which is quite a shame, since this is meant to be the 2nd biggest country for Home and Away viewing.


You can watch a shortend version of Seven Sydney's report here: http://seven.com.au/news/popup_video/125165
