According to the Australian Financial Review, News Corporation has paid an estimated $45 million (Australian) for Kidspot, which runs websites for expectant and new parents.

Kidspot was established by Katie May and underwritten by the former lord mayor of Melbourne, Irving Rockman, who passed away last year.  John Hartigan, chief executive of News Corp’s Australian business, News Limited, said the deal would make News “the leading player in the highly valuable online parenting market.”
