Congratulations to Kate Waterhouse!

Kate Waterhouse and Luke Ricketson

Kate Waterhouse has given birth to a baby girl.

The baby’s name is Sophia Edie Ricketson.

According to The Sydney Morning Herald, the daughter of Melbourne Cup winning horse trainer Gai Waterhouse gave birth on Friday at Sydney’s Mater Hospital. The bub weighed 7lbs.

Sophia is the first child for the 30-year-old Fairfax columnist, socialite and all-round style extraordinaire and her husband, retired rugby league player Luke Ricketson.

The couple were married in Italy in June 2012.

Sophia is a cousin for 14-month-old Rose, the daughter of Kate’s brother, bookmaker Tom Waterhouse, and his wife Hoda.

Congratulations to the happy family. While we will be a little bit sad to see Kate’s maternity wardrobe go, we are sure that the adorable kids clothes she will find for baby Sophia will more than compensate.
