“I think you just have to keep going because they need you.”
UPDATE: IT’S A BOY!
In heartwarming news Sharon Chan has introduced her newest family member to the public who have been so very generous to her.
Last night on A Current Affair she showed off her as yet un-named baby boy.
“Hi everyone, I just wanted to introduce you to the newest member of our little family,” she said on air.
“We haven’t named him yet, but hopefully by the end of the week we’ll have something special to call him.”
Sharon had previously said she was overwhelmed with the public’s generosity.
She received over $800,000 in donations to support her family in this trying time.
A Current Affair caught up with her last week to share the news and posted a live video of the event.
Sharon was moved to tears by the generosity of Australians, and told ACA she would put the fund towards her mortgage and medical bills for Ollie, her son with Down Syndrome.
On top of the donations collected by the Rotary Fund, Sharon and her family were also offered an all-expenses paid trip to Fiji from Tourism Fiji, and six months of groceries from Woolworths, Daily Mail reports.
Sharon was 39 weeks pregnant when this was filmed.

Sharon Chan has two children and is 38 weeks pregnant with her third child.
Her youngest, Ollie, was born with Down syndrome, and was later found to have a heart murmur. Just over a year ago, he was diagnosed with Leukemia.
If the financial and parental pressure wasn’t enough already, last week Sharon’s partner Robert suddenly died.
