Mac and his partner Rebecca James announced in April that they were expecting their first child, due in September.
To make sure Mac was prepared for the upcoming birth, James enrolled him in a class, which he participated in on Wednesday.
“Big thanks to Bec for signing me up for this 2.5 hr pre natal zoom today,” he captioned the TikTok.
Later sharing the video on Instagram, he wrote, “Thank you darling @rebeccajames_stylist.”
Mac recorded himself listening to the session with “midwife Penny,” who gave instructions including, “little push, big push, little push, big push”.
Other comments heard from Penny included, “to stitch you up,” “the cervix is right up near your bum,” and “mucus plug can come out”.
“That will ripen the cervix like a piece of fruit. It’s done with a hook that’s about 30cm long it looks like a crochet hook,” the midwife added.
“Might skip dinner tonight,” Mac wrote on the video.
Commenting on the video posted on Instagram, James responded, “How amazing is midwife Penny though?”
Also to react were many of Mac’s Channel 7 colleagues.
“Fun times ahead!” news reader Sally Bowrey wrote.
“It’s the mucus plug for me,” The Morning Show host Kylie Gillies added.
Meanwhile, others fans also reacted.
“This is probably the best pregnancy dad I’ve seen online,” one wrote.
“No one will ever convince me to go through pregnancy ever,” a second said.
Another commenter added: “Mate, I didn’t even do one. You’ll be right. Winging live crosses will hold you in good stead”.
Mac and James announced they were expecting a baby in April
“Wowsers! Mini Mac coming soon & Bec just can’t wipe the joy off her face,” Mac wrote to Instagram, followed by #DaddyMac.
James added: “Well this escalated. See you in September baby Mac”.
The couple also posted vision of the moment they shared the news with family and friends, as seen in the video below.
The video featured Mac’s parents and James’ brother, snowboarder Scotty James.
The baby is due in September.
Mac and James made their relationship ‘“Instagram official” early in 2021, the weatherman sending fans into a frenzy when he shared a cosy photo.
In a lengthy caption, the Seven star revealed he met “Bec” after being “introduced on Instagram last year” by a mutual friend.
“Bec lives in Melb, and I’m in Syd, so the Victorian border restrictions meant it was illegal for us to meet in person,” he explained.
“Here’s where it gets cool. We very quickly struck up a great friendship. Insta chats, phone calls, Friday zoom drinks, we spoke every single day for almost six months!”
Mac said it was “surreal” to finally meet James in person for a romantic dinner when border restrictions eased.
“By this stage I felt like I knew everything about her… except if she was interested in being more than friends,” he wrote.
“We knew each other so well, but also not at all.
“It’s not entirely relevant to the story but I want the fact that she was 24 minutes late to be on the record,” he joked.
The breakfast TV star added: “Eventually, over a few Harry Potter marathons & a glass or two of Zonzo, we discovered we were both feeling exactly the same.”
“We were just so thought about ruining the friendship.”
In October, the couple announced they had purchased their first home together.
“’We bought a bloody house!’ In Sydney! Already drinking our way through the pain as we calculate the stamp duty #Pray4Us,” Sam captioned a photo on Instagram.
