Kip drops baby news live on-air
Congratulations, Kip and Amber!
Kip Wightman has announced that he and his wife of two years, Amber, are expecting their first child.
The news came as much of a surprise to co-announcers Ash, Luttsy and Susie as it did to everyone listening – with Kip teasing on-air earlier in the show that he had a story to tell about “his dog Sukiyaki”.
Ash playfully accused Kip of being a liar, having directly asked him two weeks ago if Amber was pregnant, after Ash’s wife Jodie grew suspicious based on holiday Instagram photos.
Kip revealed he’d kept the news quiet as Amber had only just reached the “safe zone” 13-weeks. The baby is due in August.
The baby’s gender has so far been kept a secret, though Ash, Luttsy and Susie aren’t upset – instead wanting a “big song and dance” around the reveal.
There’s something in the water within the Breakfast team, with show producer Samantha about to take maternity leave for his first child due in March. Sam, unlike Kip, decided not to find out the gender of her baby.
Kip admits Amber would prefer a girl for their first child – which would certainly help to even out the numbers within the members of the team: Ash and Sports Reporter Mitch both have three sons, while Susie has both a daughter and son.
