ROBBIE Katter has welcomed his first child
Peaches Grace Katter was born April 20 at 11.10am weighing 6lb 9oz.
The Queensland leader of Katter’s Australian Party and Member for Traeger, announced on social media that he and his wife Daisy had welcomed their daughter into the world.
“Daisy and I are very proud to have welcomed our first child, Peaches Grace Katter, born at the Mount Isa Base Hospital weighing 6lb 9oz.”
“Almost a decade in politics, but now the real work begins. We couldn’t be happier, and would like to thank everyone for their well wishes.”
Mr Katter said it was a natural birth that lasted 18 hours and his wife and daughter were both well and were getting some much-needed sleep.
“She (Daisy) handled it well,” he said.
“10 hours of that were just brutal.”
Robbie said his father Bob Katter is chuffed.
“He’s not very dramatic but I know he would be chuffed,” he said.
Peaches was born in Mt Isa where the couple live and is named after Daisy’s great grandmother Peaches Antoine.
