In his post to Instagram, Sam is kneeling beside his baby crying as she soundly sleeps.

“Yep. This is about all I’ve got today,” he wrote.

“Best day of my life. Margot.”

Upon Margot’s arrival, Sam congratulated his girlfriend, Rebecca on her amazing job bringing a baby into the world and called her a ‘warrior’.

“It’s a girl 💖 Margot Grace McMillan,” he announced alongside a family photo with Jess and baby Margot.

“This is a love I never even knew existed. I’m overwhelmed & still processing it all right now. My girls. Wow.”

“@rebeccajames_stylist was (& is) a warrior. I will never forget what she endured over the past 9 months, & particularly the past few days for our little family. Unbelievable strength. What a woman 🙌🏼 There will be a separate post about that soon,” Sam continued.

“In the meantime I just want to say a heartfelt thanks to @drmorris_sydneymotherandbaby (the rock star of the delivery ward) & team. I’m the happiest man on the planet right now 🌎 if anyone needs me, my schedule for the next little while will be, looking in awe at Bec, looking in awe at Margot, crying & repeat 🤷🏽♂️ I’m a Dad! #MacDaddy”

Sam has been patiently waiting for his proud dad moment since the pair announced Rebecca’s pregnancy in April. While Sam looked excited to be a parent, Rebecca looked shocked.
