Producers at Nova 100 in Melbourne scrambled to find a last-minute replacement for comedian *Dave Hughes * yesterday morning.
He had to skip his regular breakfast show appearance with *Kate Langbroek * because his wife, *Holly *, pictured with Hughes, was giving birth.
Hughes sent a text to his producer, *Sacha French *, on Monday night after his wife went into labour with their third child.
But French didn't get the message until 4.30 yesterday morning.
Fellow comedian *Tommy Little *filled in for him at the last minute.
Hughes says their baby girl, as yet unnamed, was born at 5.45am weighing 3.62kg and joins three-year-old *Rafferty *and one-year-old *Sadie *.The comedian is planning to return to his radio duties tomorrow.
