The weatherman was at Featherdale Sydney Wildlife Park, talking with zookeeper Chad about the zoo’s new lion cub.

They were discussing naming the cub, to which Chad joked that Sam and Bec would soon be in the same boat.

“Bec is pregnant, you know 21 weeks, so it’s an exciting time and the part that blows my mind is the scans, just being in there and seeing the movement,” the weatherman said.

Referring to Chad, Sam added, “And he said, ‘Ah, if you want, you can bring Bec out here [to the zoo] and I can do scans for you,’ it’s exactly the same equipment.

“He’s got a little side hustle going on here guys,” Sam joked.

“So if you’re in the region, in Western Sydney, and you need a little bit of check-in there, Chad can make it happen.”
