    Announcement “Australian man gives birth, for the third time”.

    I wish all you people who write that Cate is a man would shut up. If SHE were a man, I can tell you there would never have been a second baby – let alone a third because men complain about every ache and pain as if you’re the only one who’s ever had one. You’d never be able to withstand labour. And let’s face it – your equipment precludes you from “natural childbirth”!
