Mick Fanning Had A Baby Boy!

It's only been two days, but we're gonna go ahead and say it: Mick Fanning is probably the best dad in the world. 

Can you think of a more stable, fun, and all-around loving human to rear a child? We can't. Mick is everything a dad should be and more, and we wish him and his partner Bree the best in their new (lifelong) duty of love. 

But first, here are some thoughts from their newborn, Xander:

Hi, my name is Xander Dean Fanning and I came into the world on 10th August 2020 at 2:14pm. I weigh 3.31 kg or 7.045 lbs.

I’m extremely strong, healthy and calm all because of my beautiful Mama Breeana is a full on superhero. Mama was so calm, relaxed and in the zone. Dada calls her his Zen Wonder Woman and is so in awe of how strong and amazing she is. Dada thought he could focus but he’s got nothing on Mama. She rules. Dada loves you beyond words. 

Can’t wait to meet all my family, friends and all my Uncles and Aunties around the world that gave us so much support. 

But until then I’m going to get to know Mama and Dada so would love some quiet time with them. 

Thank you to Dr Gen Bishop @glow_obstetrics and all the amazing midwives and staff at John Flynn Hospital. You’ve all been too kind, loving and helpful. 

See you all soon. Much love 
Xander Dean.

Due to a recently-birthed and more pressing responsibility, Mick will be taking a leave of absence from his chair as No Contest Unplugged co-host. Next episode (on J-Bay) will see the big Saffa Jordy Smith take his place.
