“You’ll never sleep again,” “Say goodbye to your social life,” “Prepare to be broke…” These were some of the comments made to Sam Mac and his partner Rebecca James before they became parents.
Nearly a year after the Sunrise weather presenter welcomed his daughter Margot, Sam shared a video that was a little different from the hilarious content his followers are used to.
He posted an emotional montage about how the “tough” parts of being a parent are all worth it, telling followers his daughter adds “magic” to his days.

Followers of the Channel 7 star took to the comments to agree with Sam’s deep message.
“Parenthood… the absolute HARDEST but also the absolute most beautiful, rewarding adventure you’ll EVER embark upon 💕💕💕,” one wrote.
