In his ABC series Anh’s Brush With Fame, comedian, author and artist Anh Do interviews famous Aussies as he paints their portrait. And he never fails to bring out a side of these high-profile people that we don’t always see.
Wednesday night’s interview with Megan Gale was no exception. We’re used to seeing the model looking polished and flawless on runways, TV shows and social media, but speaking to Anh she was candid and warm.
When the conversation turned to the birth of River, her first child with partner Shaun Hampson, she recalled the story of his birth with both humour and tears.
"[It was] painful... until I had the epidural," she began.
"I caved. I was so, like, 'Argh!' I wanted to do it without anything. I'm such a determined little thing."
