Channel Seven reporter Denham Hitchcock teases his upcoming interview with Alex ‘Chumpy’ Pullin’s widow Ellidy, just days after welcoming their daughter Minnie










Denham Hitchcock shared a first image from his upcoming interview with Alex ‘Chumpy’ Pullin’s widow on Thursday.

The post comes just three days after Ellidy, 29, gave birth to the couple’s daughter, Minnie, 15 months after Chumpy drowned while underwater fishing on the Gold Coast.

Denham, 45, posted a photo of himself, Ellidy and his smiling cameraman on Instagram, as they circled in the middle of the bush.

“I have a special story on this Sunday evening. I would like you to meet the wonderful Ellidy Pullin, ”the reporter proudly captioned.

“She is also the partner of Olympic snowboarder Chumpy Pullin, who tragically died while underwater fishing off the Gold Coast.

“Incredibly, Ellidy became pregnant with their baby – six months AFTER she passed away. The story of HOW it happened and what it led to – is so uplifting and heartwarming you’ll want to hug her across the television.

He added: “We spent months with her on this trip. This photo [is] of a fun day. Me, El and the mysterious cameraman known only as Azzlepops. ‘

Ellidy conceived her daughter through IVF and named her Minnie Alex, after her late father.

She announced Minnie’s birth in an Instagram post on Thursday, sharing photos of the newborn.

“Our daughter, born October 25, 2021,” Ellidy wrote, sharing a photo of her lovingly looking at the sleeping newborn baby.

Relatives and friends flocked to Ellidy’s Gold Coast home on Thursday with gifts for the new mother who now faces the difficult task of raising their baby girl on her own.

Among the visitors was Denham, whose Spotlight documentary about Ellidy’s journey from losing Chumpy to having their baby airs Sunday night.

“Our daughter, born October 25, 2021,” Ellidy wrote, sharing a photo of her lovingly looking at the sleeping newborn baby.
