Kate Ritchie and her husband Stuart Webb welcomed their first child, a daughter, on Sunday August 17 - just two days after Ritchie left her presenter role at Nova to go on maternity leave. Her Nova co-hosts Tim Blackwell and Marty Sheargold shared the news on August 18, saying, "'Our team member Kate Ritchie, who's not here ... she left us on Friday to go and have a baby ... She's already had a baby girl! We know that everything’s fine - mum and baby are doing well [and Kate] did say via text message that 'She's absolutely perfect'." Ritchie, 36, also posted a message on Facebook confirming the happy news. No more details have been released.
