Baby for ‘lucky’ cou­ple

GEN­DER ‘ONE OF LIFE’S SUR­PRISES’

Cockburn Gazette - - NEWS -

COCK­BURN coun­cil­lor Stephen Pratt and wife Elena have an­nounced they are ex­pect­ing their first child in March.

The Cen­tral ward coun­cil­lor and me­dia and pub­lic re­la­tions guru Elena, who mar­ried two years ago, an­nounced via so­cial me­dia a baby was on the way.

“We’ve al­ways wanted a fam­ily and chil­dren were def­i­nitely in our plans for the fu­ture,” Cr Pratt told the Gazette.

“Like many other cou­ples, hav­ing a baby hasn’t been an easy jour­ney for us but we feel very lucky to be meet­ing our new­est ad­di­tion next year.”

The cou­ple have de­cided to wait un­til the birth to dis­cover their baby’s gen­der.

“It’s one of life’s very few guar­an­teed sur­prises and for us the most im­por­tant thing is that we have a healthy baby,” Cr Pratt said.

While the pair have had in­ter­est­ing and var­ied ca­reers, they said they would not be guid­ing their child down any par­tic­u­lar path.

“The hard­est choice they will have to make though is which footy team to sup­port,” Cr Pratt said.

“With one of us an Ea­gles fan and the other a Dock­ers fan, it will make for very in­ter­est­ing fam­ily derby days.”
