Pregnancy & Birth

Megan Gale just shared an adorable picture of her baby girl

But Megan's seriously struggling to choose a name for her week-old bub!

Last week Megan Gale gave birth to her second baby with her AFL partner Shaun Hampson.
We've been itching to find out what the new bub is called but, as it turns out, even Megan isn't sure yet!
We might not know the newborn's name yet but Megan did give us a glimpse of her little bundle of joy to mark her first week in the world. So that'll keep us going. For now.

Megan revealed the baby girl will be officially named soon, saying they're "getting close".
She also posted the most adorable message to mark her daughter's birth last week and we got a fascinating insight into what River, 2, is like as a big brother.
"WHEN 3 BECOMES 4," Megan posted on Instagram. "Our darling little bun came out of the oven earlier this week. Sweet little soul. You are already so blessed. Healthy as can be with a family that has fallen head over heels in love with you. A big brother that is already so attentive and protective, (who has also handled all these big changes like a boss ) a Dad who is so smitten with you and that you already have firmly wrapped around your little finger. And myself, who's been so lucky to have carried you in my belly for 9 months and to have had the pleasure and privilege of birthing you into this world (and can I just say .. we nailed it kid ). I'm so committed to being the absolute best mother, friend and role model for you. Thank you for choosing me to be your Mama, my darling girl."
Sadly, Megan's road to baby number two hasn't come without hardships.
In January, the stunning star opened up about suffering a miscarriage in 2016 when she was 8 weeks pregnant.
The Next Top Model star decided to go public with her ordeal in order to challenge the stigma surrounding losing a child before birth, something which affects one in four Australian women.
After she fell pregnant, her body couldn't cope.
"I had a cold, flu, I got laryngitis, I had a chest infection—it just got worse and worse," Megan told InStyle.

Following a reassuring six-week scan Megan explains how, in the weeks that followed, she felt something was amiss.
"I can't put my finger on it. There was no physical change or a sign or symptom."
A trip to the obstetrician confirmed her fears, she'd lost the baby.
"Immediately you go into a bit of blame; 'what have I done?' Because you're charged with the responsibility for growing this life and carrying it through."
"So I think it's very natural with miscarriage to have this feeling you've dropped the ball," the television host explained.

Despite their heartbreak, Megan admits it's only strengthened her relationship with Shaun, who she has been with since 2011 following her split from Andy Lee in 2010.
"We've been through alot together but it's just strengthened us as a couple. I think those things can really make you or break you and it's absolutely made us," she admitted.
No doubt this exciting new family member will only bring them even closer!
Now, if you'll get a wiggle on and choose her name...
Here's some inspo in the video underneath, Megan. You're welcome!
