Bec Hewitt’s Sudden Change Of Gossip Mag Heart
For a while there it looked as though baby Mia Hewitt was destined to grow up entirely within the pages of Woman’s Day, sort of like Sally from Home & Away but trapped inside the pages of a magazine.
Well, hasn’t Ms Bum Chin herself changed her tune – evidently Bec “Rebecca Hewitt” Cartwright has decided enough’s enough and that children’s birthday parties are – shockingly – for children rather than bored housewives and patients in GPs’ waiting rooms to enjoy.
Just one month ago, Bec ended her two-year contract as a columnist with the ACP-owned Woman’s Day – the magazine that reportedly shelled out more than a million dollars to own the exclusive rights to Mia’s birth.
At the time it was believed to be a record sum paid locally by a magazine, but two years and a stash of sappy stories later, it would appear the tennis mum is no longer looking to sell her family album to the public.
“Bec is no longer contracted to Woman’s Day and she is not looking to renew that contract with the magazine,” the Hewitts’ manager David Drysdale said yesterday.
“Bec and Lleyton would prefer to keep Mia’s birthday a private affair, and enjoy a special family day together without any media present.”
This from the couple who thought their newborn baby would really enjoy being gussied up in a mini-me version of Bec’s formal gown and bounced up and down on the Logies stage about eight hours after bedtime.
We just won’t know what to do with ourselves without Bec’s latest “baby pain” or “marriage secrets”!
