Kyle Sandilands, 51, reveals his emotion at becoming a new father after welcoming son Otto with fiancée Tegan Kynaston, 36: ‘We can’t stop staring at him’

Kyle Sandilands has given insight into his first few days of becoming a father.

The Sydney radio king, 51, welcomed baby Otto with partner Tegan Kynaston, 36, at Sydney’s Prince of Wales Private Hospital, on Thursday.

Kyle told this week’s The Sunday Telegraph, Otto has already won his heart and he can’t stop ‘staring’ at him.

‘We just look at him the entire time, like a couple of goons, just staring at him — and then we look at each other and smile,’ Kyle told the publication. 

‘And then we [himself and Tegan] have a little tear.’

Kyle also said Otto is ‘very quiet’ and ‘feeding well’ with new mother, Tegan.

The radio star said while previously babies have been ‘a little too much for him’, he feels his natural parenting instincts have kicked in.

‘When I’ve held other friends’ babies, I’ve hated it when they have that floppy neck and it’s all a bit much for me – but him, it was different,’ he said.

‘That natural thing may have kicked in.’

Kyle revealed he has been congratulated by the Prime Minister as well as old premiers.

He also said he was happy Covid restrictions had allowed himself and Tegan to have some alone time with Otto.

Kyle and Tegan welcomed Otto on Thursday morning.

His co-host Jackie O Henderson announced the happy news on-air and Kyle’s manager Bruno Bouchet told Daily Mail Australia: ‘Little Otto was born this morning. Mum and bub both doing well.’

‘Kyle’s beyond excited. Kyle will be back on tomorrow’s radio show to chat all things Otto,’ he added.

Jackie, who is Otto’s godmother, shed tears of joy as she declared: ‘Otto has been born!’

Kyle later gave a rather graphic update about the birth, telling ‘Intern’ Peter Deppeler live in the hospital car park: ‘Otto’s born, Otto’s fabulous. I cut the cord, I didn’t realise it was like tough calamari and blood spurted out.

Dressed in blue scrubs, the elated new father said: ‘I was the first person to touch him, he sh*t himself, poo was oozing out.’

Deppeler also recorded a comedic video of Kyle indulging in a cooler bag full of snacks in the hospital.  

‘The baby’s feeding. Then I thought, well if you’re eating, I will too,’ he declared.

While the KIIS FM team weren’t able to broadcast from the birthing suite, they did contribute a personal touch to Tegan’s and Kyle’s big day by creating a baby-themed playlist for them to play while she gave birth.
