RADIO presenter Kyle Sandilands has revealed he is “jealous” of his baby son becoming a millionaire before his first birthday.
The 52-year-old Australian admitted his son’s extreme wealth in a casual comment to co-host Jackie “O” Henderson, 48.
Jackie O mocked Kyle’s spending habits in a conversation about his use of a private jet and said she was worried his son would lose something: “I want Otto to have that nice inheritance one day.”
Kyle reassured her: “Otto has already been loaded by his great-grandfather, so don’t worry.”
“My child is already a millionaire, he already has a million dollars in the bank.
“Not even one, what an asshole, I’m jealous of my own child.”
It is understood that Otto’s bank account was set up by the “wealthy” grandfather of Kyle’s wife and Otto’s mother, Tegan Kynaston.
Kyle has a net worth of $40 million – with an investment company of $100 million and a salary of $5 million – but has hinted that his wife’s fortune is even greater than his.
Little is known about Tegan’s parents or grandparents, but the communications director attended one of Sydney’s most expensive private schools, Kambala Girls’ School.
Tegan worked as Kyle’s personal assistant before the couple went public with their relationship in 2019, got engaged in January 2022, and gave birth to their son Otto in August 2022.
The couple married in April this year – their fairytale wedding took place at the historic Swifts estate in Darling Point, with high-profile guests including Prime Minister Anthony Albanese and a price tag of $1 million.
Kyle and Tegan also recently spent a cool $25,000 on their son’s first birthday party.
The radio host massively downplayed the cost last month, saying: “It’s only $25,000. “It’s a toned down kind of party.”
Those lucky enough to be invited were greeted with a Mickey Mouse impersonator, a bouncy castle, a six-foot-tall giraffe, and plenty of food and drink.
Kyle also didn’t hold back when it came to his honeymoon with Tegan. The couple traveled to Europe this year with an entourage of co-workers and friends, including Otto’s nanny and several Kyle and Jackie O Show staffers.
A breakdown of costs revealed they had spent $20,000 on tips alone, not to mention $80,000 on airfare and $12,000 on alcohol.
The total cost of the honeymoon was reported to be $513,430 news.com.au.
Kyle has previously come under fire for his controversial opinions and lack of filter. Tell Adele in 2021 She was “just like” Little Britain character Vicky Pollard.
He said in 2021: “You’re just like us… You’re Vicky Pollard but with an amazing voice.”
“Vicky Pollard is a bad example. But I love Vicky Pollard!”
In the same interview, Kyle said that Adele “must have a damn mate” as she revealed she was doing well following her divorce.
Adele ignored the rude comment and continued to promote her single “Easy On Me.”
