Perth supermum and popular blogger Chloe Dunstan gives birth to 10th child on 31st birthday


Perth supermum Chloe Dunstan has much to celebrate after giving birth to her 10th child on her 31st birthday last week, announcing the joyous news to her 460,000 Instagram followers.

In a series of sweet posts to her account, @chloeandbeans, Mrs Dunstan revealed the latest edition to the beans is a beautiful baby girl named Zelda Cordelia. The little bundle of joy was born on February 19, weighing in at 3840g and stretching 55cm long.

Dunstan told family, friends and fans that she and husband Rohan “couldn’t be more in love” with the latest edition to the family, taking their time to share all the details of the birth, as the last week had been “a whirlwind”.

“I had an emergency caesarean, which was obviously not the plan, and I am physically still recovering,” she wrote.

“It was a very quick progression of me thinking baby would be born naturally very soon, to being rushed down the hall and put to sleep.

“Everything was going well with the labour until suddenly her heart rate dropped to 50bpm and wouldn’t recover.”

She added that she just felt “extremely lucky that our little miss is here with us!”

Aside from physically healing from surgery, she said she felt OK and her recovery had been smooth.

“Now, I’m just enjoying my sweet baby and getting into the swing of life with 10 kids,” she wrote.

The northern suburbs couple were thrust into the spotlight in 2017 after their super popular YouTube channel — Life with Beans — turned into a full-time job.

The channel, which now has 273,000 subscribers, documents the day-to-day reality of raising their now 10 children Evan, 11, Otto, 10, Felix, 9, eight-year-old triplets Henry, Rufus and Pearl, three-year-old twins Sylvie and Cosmo, 23-month-old Birdie and now newborn Zelda.

Each of their short films on family life — ranging from “Chrismas Day with 9 Children” to “Boys Finally Getting Their Hair Cut!” and “Baby Triplets Having a Race” — has received tens of thousands of views.

Popular videos such as “Meeting the Wiggles” and “Night time routine – mum of eight” have been viewed more than two million times.

Others have gone viral, with “Super Dad vs six babies at bedtime” receiving a huge 5.9 million views and “Grocery Shopping with six kids” reaching 4.9 million.

In 2017, Mrs Dunstan told PerthNow that the popularity of their YouTube channel was unexpected but had proved a boon for the young family, with the couple earning revenue from YouTube and advertising deals.

“We have a huge following from all over the world,” she said. “We make more than what Ro was making full-time working in the bakery, so it works for us.

“Ro did go back to work for three months when the triplets were a couple of months old and I was at home on my own with a one-year-old, two-year-old, three-year-old and newborn triplets who were having multiple bottles a day and naps and it was just way too much.

“That’s when we were like, ‘Nup, we have to figure something else out’, and put all our effort into (the vlog) and made it work.”

Mrs Dunstan said video blogging allowed them to spend more time with their kids and to homeschool.

“With the kids all day it is a full-time, two-person job,” she said.

To summarise their busy life, Mrs Dunstan says: “Life can be pretty hectic sometimes but it’s also A LOT of fun!”
