Kate Ritchie on birthday tradition shared with daughter Mae

Kate Ritchie shares five-year-old daughter Mae with AFL star husband Stuart Webb.

And the former Home and Away star revealed the sweet tradition she takes part in every year for Mae’s birthday, in an interview with The Australian Women’s Weekly this week. 

The 42-year-old Nova radio host said they always bake a cake together to celebrate the occasion, from the magazine’s Children’s Birthday Cake Book.

Kate told the publication: ‘My earliest memory of [the birthday cake book] was flicking through the pages in wonderful birthday anticipation. Something I do with my own daughter now.’

For Mae’s first birthday, the doting mother baked a cake in the shape of the number one, which was covered in pink icing and pink chocolate drops.   

When Mae turned three, Kate made a Barbie princess cake, and more recently, a cake in the shape of the number five, decorated with stars and ponies.

‘Of the six birthday cakes I have baked for my daughter, three have come straight from the Australian Women’s Weekly Children’s Birthday Cake Book.’ 

Kate said that her little girl also enjoys the fun of creating something in the kitchen. 

‘It is just good fun with a lovely sense of achievement attached when we can stand back and marvel at our creations,’ she explained.

Kate shares Mae with husband Stuart Webb, 39, who she married in a lavish ceremony in Launceston, Tasmania in 2010.    

In April, New Idea magazine reported that the troubled couple had been attending ‘counselling’ for their issues.

‘Stuart has been trying to show Kate that he’s a changed man and is serious about getting his life in order,’ a ‘friend’ allegedly told the publication at the time.

Kate and Stuart were last spotted together in February to celebrate daughter Mae’s first day of school.

The reunion came three months after Kate reportedly moved out of their marital home after police took out an interim AVO on her behalf against the NRL star, following an incident at her house in Randwick.

In December, Stuart made headlines for his five-time drink driving history. 

His driving history was revealed in a police fact sheet, as he faced court for blowing 0.083 when he was pulled over by highway patrolmen in the city’s east in March last year.
