Deborah Mailman Baby

AFI ACTOR HAS A NEW ROLE; MOMMY ~ Actor Deborah Mailman and her partner, advertising executive Matthew Coonan welcomed their first child, a son back in January named Henry Walter. The couple spoke to OK Magazine this week introducing their bundle of blue. On the delivery Deborah says; “I heard his cry first, before I saw him, and I think because my body was going through so much already, and my mind was sort of, running on empty, but it was such a relief to hear his cry! And then they popped him straight on my chest, and just holding him, it was beautiful! That moment of knowing that everything was alright.”

On his name; “Walter is named after my dad, he was always going to have Walter as his middle name, Henry was one of many names that we had but he sort of chose his own name in a way (Matthew adds) A little bit! We’d had a big list of names but by the end he just looked like a Henry.”
