Sam Mac takes paternity leave from Sunrise

Sam Mac takes paternity leave from Sunrise

Sunrise weatherman Sam Mac is taking some much needed paternity leave from the Seven breakfast show, well deserved given the role requires endless flights across the country.

He and partner Rebecca James welcomed baby Margot over a year ago.

“It’s my turn to be getting Margot up, feed her and basically becoming her personal assistant / servant,” he told the Courier Mail.

“She’s walking now, which is awesome but it’s a bit daunting because we have to childproof the house … but really exciting times.

“Margot’s changed so much even in the past couple of months. So it’s super-exciting to have some proper quality time with her.”

Katie Brown will fill in during his leave.
