With one of Australia’s favorite couples, Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban, already having welcomed a baby this month, the spotlight now turns to power couple James Packer and wife Erica Baxter Packer. Erica made an apparent "dash" to the hospital two weeks ago, which turned out to be just a check up, but there is still no news of the baby, which was said to originally be due in late June.

Sources are now saying that the baby’s due date was closer to mid-July. Australia’s second richest man and his wife are now expected to make their trip to the Mater Hospital in Crows Nest within the next two weeks. With the birth of Sunday Rose Kidman Urban having past, Aussie baby watchers wait for the arrival of the Packer baby.

James is the Executive Chairman of Publishing and Broadcasting and he directs Consolidated Press Holdings Limited. Erica is a model and singer. This will be the first child for the couple, who married in France in June 2007. The pregnancy news was announced in January.
