Brisbane’s KIIS FM breakfast host Kip Wightman has announced he is expecting to welcome a baby with his partner Nyomie Essa.
He shared the exciting news with his co-host Robin Bailey on Wednesday during an on-air segment as part of Robin & Kip’s Lie Detector.
Kip was testing out new lie detecting technology that uses eye movement to detect whether someone is telling the truth or not.
During the test, he was asked whether he would like to have more children but the results indicated he was ‘pensive’.
‘The reason that there was a high cognitive load was because Nyomie is pregnant,’ Kip told Robin.

Robin jumped up and down with excitement before running over towards Kip and embracing him.
‘That’s so exciting. I’m so happy for you. This is the best thing ever!’ she said.
Kip started dating Nyomie following his split from his wife Amber Preiksa in 2021 after four years of marriage.
The couple had tied the knot in 2017 and welcomed their four-year-old son Rafael in 2019.
In October, Kip broke down while discussing sharing custody of his son Rafael with his ex-wife Amber.

He revealed on KIIS’ Robin, Terry & Kip breakfast show, he was left heartbroken when his son asked him why he and Amber don’t live together like his friend’s parents.
‘The worst thing that happened on Sunday was when I picked him up and we were going to a family barbecue and he said “Dad I know someone named Charlie from daycare”,’ he explained.
Rafael then said: ‘Dad, you know, Charlie’s got a mum and a dad. And they’re in the same house. They live together.’

‘And sometimes they pick him up together … I want that’.
An emotional Wightman broke down in tears and said: ‘I just let him down. I can’t stand it.’
His co-host Robin Bailey reassured him: ‘You didn’t let him down. Life has let him down. Things happen mate.’
‘And what he’s got is double the amount of people who are in his corner loving him,’ she added.
