it’s been one of the most talked about tummies in Australian media and this morning Michelle Bridges finally gave birth to her first child – a baby boy called Axel.
To its credit The Sydney Morning Herald were one of the first media outlets with the news – although they got the baby’s sex wrong. And the confusion grew at News.com.au who, likewise, reported the fitness guru had given birth to a girl.
The story remained on smh.com.au until a revision was posted and a tiny retraction offered at the end of the original story that said “An earlier version of this article incorrectly reported that Bridges and Willis had a baby girl”.
Likewise over at News.com.au the site reported that the couple had given birth to a baby girl over the weekend but were reluctant to make any news public due to a deal with Who Weekly magazine. “Michelle Bridges has given birth to her first child, but won’t be revealing details until a paid, tell-all magazine exclusive, The Daily Telegraph’s Sydney Confidential understands,” the article read.
How the news sites got the sex wrong is anyone’s guess, but all was confirmed via a Instagram post from the new mum herself this morning.
