Controversial The Block bidder Adrian Portelli has revealed that he and partner Karlie Butler have welcomed their first child together, a baby boy that they have not yet publically shared the name of.

Breaking the news on his Instagram account, the entrepreneur shared numerous snaps of him with his son, captioning the post, “Welcome to the world little man.”

In November 2023, he gifted his girlfriend Karlie Butler an expensive “push present.”

Taking to his social media accounts to share snaps from the baby shower, the self-made millionaire (who has an estimated net worth of over $300m), was clearly over the moon about becoming a father. 

So much so, that the entrepreneur not only organised a lavish baby shower for his partner but gifted her a brand new white Aston Martin, complete with “heritage license plates.”

Whilst the exact cost of the car was kept under wraps, the property mogul said the gift to his girlfriend Karlie was “well deserved for putting up with [him].”

Given the base model for this car retails from $357,000, and heritage plates sell for at least $50,000, this gift was every bit as generous as it was romantic!

Earlier that year, the 35-year-old car enthusiast held an elaborate gender reveal in his $39 million dollar East Melbourne penthouse, revealing that he and Karlie were expecting a baby boy together. 

The event saw three roulettes fly over the luxury highrise building, with one ultimately spraying blue into the sky to break the happy news that they would be having a son together.
