“That’s so exciting,” Monique Wright said.
“It’s quite emotional. I’m sure lots of viewers have gone through it.
“It’s kind of big. You have to be there for that milestone.
“I will be off for the rest of the show after the next interview.”
“How is Hunter feeling?” co-host Matt Shirvington asked.
“Yeah he’s feeling good but it’s scary. HSC is coming up in NSW – 11 October all that starts, but last day of school, we all remember that don’t we?
