NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet has announced he is expecting a seventh child.

The devout Catholic leader posted the ‘exciting family news’ on Facebook on Sunday night alongside a photo of his heavily pregnant wife Helen. 

‘Our family photo wall is going to need another frame! Helen and I are thrilled to announce we have a little girl due next year,’ he wrote.  

‘With five sisters already, William is looking on the bright side – more bench depth on the family basketball team.’

Dozens of social media users flocked to the comments to congratulate the premier, with one woman saying Helen ‘deserved a medal’. 

‘Wow Helen you’re a Wonder Woman! Congratulations,’ another agreed. 

The couple are already the proud parents of Charlotte, Amelia, Annabelle, William, Harriet and Beatrice. 

It comes as the size of the premier’s family has got many wondering how he will juggle raising seven young children while occupying the highest office in the state. 

Mr Perrottet himself was asked about how he would juggle his family situation by Sky News’ Laura Jayes following his election by the Coalition party room. 

‘Well, it is demanding,’ the 39-year-old responded. ‘I mean, being a father, like being a mother, when you have got family commitments, balancing work and family life is a challenge for every single person right across the state.

‘Ultimately, I think what I might lose in time, I gain in perspective, and everyone has the attributes, everyone has their strengths and weaknesses, and I am no different to that, but one thing I do know is that I have a very strong team around me.

‘I have a strong family and I have a strong ministerial team who will ensure that our focus is on the people of New South Wales, and that we come out stronger on the other side.’

Ms Perrottet is a former Australian Federal Police officer, has worked in public relations for the Australian Defence Force, studied the law at night and is now a high-powered solicitor.

The mother-of-seven has worked in law in both the private and public sector for more than 16 years and is a former winner of the Australian Beginner Championships of Ceroc Dancing – a blend of jive, ballroom and swing dancing. 

Mr Perrottet thanked his wife and family upon his ascension to the top job following his 39-5 victory in the Liberal Party ballot on October 5. 

‘To my wife, Helen, and my kids, without your love and support, I would not be here today,’ the premier was heard repeating.

The Liberal leader previously mentioned his wife in his maiden speech to Parliament after the Coalition won a landslide victory in 2011. 

Mr Perrottet said everyone present owed a lot to their families. ‘My amazing wife, Helen, knows the demands of work and family that we as Australians face in the twenty-first century,’ he said.

‘For many years while working full time in numerous jobs, including the Australian Federal Police and the Australian Defence Force, Helen also worked late into the night completing a law degree at night school.’

Mr Perrottet said his wife wanted to not only better herself, but also her community, and did so while juggling many roles.

‘Late into the night she applied herself to her studies and cared for her family. I am immensely proud of her as a talented professional, as a soul-mate, and above all as a mother who continues to give everything she has to her two children: Charlotte, who is here in the gallery today, and Amelia, who is due to be born in a few months.’ 

As a father of six and with 11 siblings, Mr Perrottet has said he would be a ‘family premier’ who wants to ‘make life better for working families.’

‘Up until now, all of our Liberal premiers have been infrastructure premiers, building roads, rail, schools and hospitals for communities right across our state, and that will not change with me,’ he said.

‘But I will also be a family Premier, focusing on how we can make life better for working families, living the Liberal values of opportunity, aspiration and hard work.’

The social conservative has also been forced to address his religious views. 

In 2019, Mr Perrottet voted against a bill to decriminalise abortion, declaring he could not support laws that stopped ‘the beating heart of an unborn child’.

‘I am very proud of the fact that I have a strong Christian faith,’ he said. 

‘Does that in any way take away my capacity to serve as Premier?

‘Well, I do not think so, and I think it is a sad thing that some people do, but I think people right across our state, in the main, believe in freedom of religion and freedom of the opportunity to serve in public life regardless of what your ethnic background is or what your religious values are.’

More to come.
