"Utterly astonishing." Osher Gunsberg and Audrey Griffen have welcomed a baby boy.

In very exciting news, Osher Günsberg and wife Audrey Griffen have welcomed their first baby together, a son called Wolfgang.

The Bachelor Australia host shared that ‘Wolfie’ was born on Friday in an Instagram post on Sunday night, with a caption explaining how in awe he was of Audrey.

“I am in complete awe of my wife,” he wrote. “What I witnessed her do, the power I saw her summon from within her to bring this boy into the world was utterly astonishing.”

Listen: Osher Günsberg joins Mia Freedman on No Filter to talk about his book Back, After The Break, where he writes about his life.

“⁠As he came closer and closer, her body began to unleash an incredible energy that was absolutely not going to be held back. ⁠Yet Audrey was able to harness it, guide it, and use it to transcend the extraordinary pain she was feeling and channel it all towards an energy that brought this boy alive and well into the world.”

The couple met on the set of The Bachelor season four and went on to marry in the Hunter Valley in 2016.

“That I’ve known Audrey for over five years, and yet had no idea that within her this whole time was an almighty divine force capable of bringing life into the world like this blows my mind and was astonishing to witness,” he said.

“I can’t think of any single thing a man does in his life that physically equates to what I saw Audrey do.”

Please meet Georgia’s youngest brother, Wolfgang. ⁠ We call him Wolfie for short. ⁠ ⁠ He and @Audreygriffen did so well on Friday when he was born perfectly formed with ten fingers and toes, healthy and happy at 3.97kg.⁠ (Though between the delivery bed and the scale he did do a massive poop – and the doc agreed that if he hadn’t he would have topped 4kg easily.) ⁠ ⁠ I am in complete awe of my wife. ⁠ ⁠ What I witnessed her do, the power I saw her summon from within her to bring this boy into the world was utterly astonishing. ⁠ ⁠ As he came closer and closer, her body began to unleash an incredible energy that was absolutely not going to be held back. ⁠ ⁠ Yet Audrey was able to harness it, guide it, and use it to transcend the extraordinary pain she was feeling and channel it all towards an energy that brought this boy alive and well into the world. ⁠ ⁠ That I’ve known Audrey for over five years, and yet had no idea that within her this whole time was an almighty divine force capable of bringing life into the world like this blows my mind and was astonishing to witness. ⁠ ⁠ I can’t think of any single thing a man does in his life that physically equates to what I saw Audrey do. ⁠ ⁠ For me – any marathon or endurance event I’ve ever raced is essentially a wander to the kitchen compared to what I saw Audrey do on Friday. ⁠ ⁠ Wolfie’s big sister Georgia was in the room with us via the most perfect playlist that she made especially for the occasion – and this boy came into the world to the sounds of Kendrick Lamar, Beyonce and Khalid. ⁠ ⁠ Less than an hour after he was born, Wolfie met G for real – and she’s the best big sister he could have ever hoped for. ⁠ ⁠ We are in love and drowning in gratitude, oxytocin and new baby smell. ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠

Osher also gave a tribute to his teenage step-daughter Georgia, who created “the most perfect playlist” that she created for the birth.

“This boy came into the world to the sounds of Kendrick Lamar, Beyonce and Khalid. ⁠

“Less than an hour after he was born, Wolfie met G for real – and she’s the best big sister he could have ever hoped for.”

He concluded by saying his family of four were “in love, drowning in gratitude, oxytocin and new baby smell”.

The 45-year-old announced he and Audrey were expecting in February.

Referencing Georgia and his cavoodle Frankie, Osher said he couldn’t wait for his family to expand.

“All four of us are over the moon and looking forward to meeting this wonderful young human.

“For me, meeting Audrey saved my life. Meeting Georgia gave my life a purpose and direction that I never expected. These two wonderful women have given me so much already, they’ve helped me heal and grow – and now to have the chance to share with them the experience of bringing up a child together is just incredible.”
