George went on to thank the staff at the hospital, and explain that the marble will have to pass on it’s own.  

‘Thanks to the great team in emergency at Cabrini Hospital. You guys are wonderful. Geez I love this kid. Now let’s wait for it to pass!’ he added.

George has two children, his son James, and daughter, Michaela, six. 

He married his long-term girlfriend Natalie Tricarico, with whom he shares his two children, last year. 

The pair had a luxurious wedding in Greece, attended by his former MasterChef co-stars Manu Feildel and Shannon Bennett. 

It comes after news that Georgie’s former co-judges Matt Preston and Gary Mehigan are reportedly ‘cooking up a new show with Seven’, without George.

According to The Herald Sun on Saturday, Seven West Media’s new CEO James Warburton is hoping Matt and Gary can ‘reinvigorate’ the network. 

An insider claimed to the publication that George was ‘left off the list’ after admitting to underpaying staff at his Melbourne restaurants nearly $8 million. 

Matt, Gary and George were all ousted from MasterChef in July after contract negotiations stalled, after ten years on the show.
