Kochie conveyed his excitement to viewers about meeting his granddaughter on Sunrise.

“A quick shout-out to my eldest daughter Sam who gave birth over the weekend to little Florence,” he said.

“I’m going visiting today, there’s strict COVID rules, only one person per visiting, so I get my turn today.”

It’s not the first time Kochie has taken to social media with news of his grandchildren. In December 2020 he finally met his sixth grandchild, Ella, after a painful six month wait due to covid-19 restrictions, at the time.

Kochie posted photos of the emotional reunion with his Perth based family to Instagram alongside the caption: “When Poppy met Ella. 8 months ago Ella was born in Perth.”

“Last night she came home for Christmas with Brie, Jax and Teddy. CJ follows on Saturday. And just like the movie it was love at first sight,” he wrote.

What are some of your best wishes for Kochie?
