Jenny May Clarkson

Former Silver Fern netball player and now 1 News presenter welcomed her twin boys in March, just a few months after she married her husband Dean. The couple named the boys, Atawhai and Te Manahau, Clarkson told NZ Woman's Weekly she was feeling "so blessed" and adding "it’s just so awesome." Clarkson returned to 1 News in July.

Victor Vito

Victor and his wife Amber moved to France back in September when Victor started a new contract with French team La Rochelle. Since then they have added to their family. Amber gave birth 5 weeks early, not long after her 28th birthday. Cruz Angelo Vito came into the world last week a little brother for Karlos.
