She’s already a popular TV star and interior designer, and now it seems Samantha Armytage can add another feather to her bow.
The Farmer Wants a Wife host revealed on Instagram over the weekend how she helped bring a new arrival into the world.
Sam told how she and her husband, farmer Richard Lavender, had experienced a “sweet morning” at their home in the Southern Highlands of New South Wales when a new foal was born.

“Nice morning with us; “An amazing little boy,” Sam wrote alongside a photo of the new arrival and his mother Nancy.
“Well done Nancy and welcome to the world little #Churchill stud. (Presented by Richard Lavender, assisted by me.)”
The adorable photo showed the stallion taking his first steps while his proud mother cuddled him.
Fans of Sam immediately took to the comments section to show how impressed they were with her skills.
“Well done Sam!” one viewer wrote, to which Sam responded with more details about what actually happened.
“I was a great help… I held the mare’s head – Richard did the hard part… actually Nancy did the hard part,” she wrote.
“How special!” Another fan enthused, while I added in third. “So beautiful! Congratulations.”
Sam is definitely a fan of the farming life – and as host of Farmer Wants a Wife, she wants others to embrace the lifestyle too.
Speaking to 7Life in July, Sam expressed her hopes for the 2024 series of the hit Channel 7 show.
“There are so many different landscapes in Australia… and I would like to show Australians that,” she said.
“So some of these other places that are out of the norm would be really fascinating to see and, I’m sure, incredibly beautiful.”
Sam, who came from a farming background and later married a farmer, describes herself as a “huge advocate for our agricultural industry”.
“I believe so much in our farmers in Australia. I’m so proud of her,” she says.
As well as watching farmers fall in love, Farmer Wants a Wife is a great tool to promote the work of Australian farmers and some of the country’s farming practices, Sam believes.
“It’s wonderful to show Australians how dynamic our farmers can be, where they come from and what they produce,” she says.
“You know, when you have a bowl of almonds on your table, do you know where they come from?”
