Before the birth of her child, Woman’s Day reported that Ash had plans to involve her sister in her delivery. Ash’s sister Sara Coppolecchia is a midwife at St Andrew’s Ipswich Private Hospital, which is where the couple are reportedly planning to deliver their baby.

“Everything Garry and Ash do as a couple has always been under the radar, and welcoming their first baby will be no different, including the fact that her sister Sara will be with her every step of the way,” a source told Woman’s Day.

“They managed to keep Ash’s shock retirement and their July nuptials a secret, so you can expect this little baby is going to be heavily guarded – there won’t be any big glitzy announcements because that’s just how Ash likes to roll.”

The source also speculated that “Ash’s other sister Ali won’t be too far away, and her mum and dad Josie and Robert and the nieces and nephews will no doubt be in the waiting room ready for first cuddles! Everyone will be wanting the first look at the little bub.”
