Sunrise: Sam Mac sparks debate by giving his partner wine after giving birth

Sunrise weatherman Sam Mac gave his partner Rebecca James a hilarious “gift” just days after the birth of their child – but not everyone thought it was funny.

The couple, who went public with their relationship in March last year, welcomed daughter Margot Grace on Sunday, September 11.

Sam shared a photo on Instagram over the weekend of Rebecca cradling her newborn while holding a giant wine glass he’d filled with an entire bottle of rose wine.

“My dear Rebecca has been looking forward to a glass of wine for nine months. Greetings boo,” the 40-year-old captioned his post.

Sam’s famous friends and followers loved the gag gift, with former Neighbors star Bonnie Anderson writing, “I know the feeling!”

“Cheers to the mega pint,” one fan wrote, referencing a famous quote from the Johnny Depp-Amber Heard defamation trial.

Another commented: “Nine months of wine in that one glass I think. Cheers.’

A follower said the glass was “well deserved”.

However, some fans were unfazed by the light-hearted post, and several pointed out that alcohol consumption is discouraged for women who have just given birth, especially if they are breastfeeding.

“Should you drink while breastfeeding? Or are [you] bottle feeding?’ asked a concerned follower in the comments section.

“Um… shouldn’t drink while breastfeeding…” added another.

One wrote: “Not breastfeeding? But if it’s you, remember what you’ve got, baby has it too.”

Other fans jumped up to defend the new parents, saying it was wrong to assume Rebecca is breastfeeding and that it’s nobody’s business if she drinks.

,Is none of your business!’ a supporter fired back. “They are an educated couple who don’t need the advice or questioning of strangers.”

It comes almost a week after Sam declared he was the “happiest man on the planet” after becoming a father for the first time.

Last Thursday, the weather presenter posted a beautiful photo of his newborn daughter resting peacefully in her crib on Instagram.

He captioned the photo: “Did anyone order a lightly judgmental burrito with an extra side eye? Our little Margot Grace McMillan is home and we are so hopelessly in love.’

Many of his 155,000 followers were quick to send their well wishes.

Former Home and Away star Sam Frost, who recently announced her own pregnancy, thought the snap was adorable.

‘Awww angel. I’m so happy for you both!! She is heaven,” she wrote.

Weekend Sunrise weatherman James Tobin added: “She’s lovely”.

Sam and Rebecca, a stylist, welcomed Margot Grace McMillan, their first child together, on September 11th.

The couple announced in April that they were expecting their first child together.
