The 2016 Hay B&S has produced its first baby.
Griffith boy Mitchell Hill and Goulburn girl Samantha Coggan met at the ball last year, instantly fell in love and have been a couple since. Ten weeks ago, Samantha gave birth to gorgeous baby boy Dustin.
“I noticed him smiling at me on the dance floor. I though, wow, he’s so cute. He just walked over, took my hand and started twirling me around. He didn’t say a word,” Samantha said.
Samantha is convinced their meeting was fate.
“I usually go to the Cootamundra B&S, but it was cancelled, so I came to Hay for the first time. We clicked straight away, we have all the same interests. We want to spend the rest of our lives together,” she said.
Samantha is a 27-year-old chef and Mitchell a 25-year-old marine mechanic.
We wish them, and all attending the Hay B&S this weekend, all the very best.
