He’s the first child of Ray’s son Daniel and his partner Cass.

A very proud Pop!

Noah eventually came out after a long and difficult labour, weighing 6 pounds 6 ounces (2.9kgs).

Cass had to have an emergency C-section after doctors started becoming concerned, but mum and bub are healthy and well now.

All of us here at Macquarie Radio wish them a huge congratulations, including Alan Jones.

Ray gave Alan the honour of announcing the birth to Macquarie Radio listeners because he actually announced the birth of Daniel Hadley almost 30 years ago.

Ray very proudly informed his listeners of the “momentous occasion”, saying “Noah will bring much joy to our lives, he has already”.

He also paid tribute to his son, Daniel, who has gone through an enormous amount of personal turmoil in recent years and come out the other side.

“It has been a difficult time for my family but my family is very strong and my son is very strong.

“I’m very proud of the leaps and bounds he’s made over the last 12 months when his life was in crisis.

“It’s no longer in crisis, it’s just much joy attached to him and his family.”
