Australian radio and television presenter Fifi Box has revealed she is pregnant with her second child – years after starting her IVF journey to add to her family
Fifi, 41, had her first child Trixie five years ago with Ironman Grant Kenny announced as the father.
The pair are said to have split after a brief romance but co-parent Trixie.
Two years after Trixie’s birth, Fifi began the IVF process to give a sibling to her daughter.
The Melbourne native revealed the news on Instagram with a video of her telling Trixie the news.
She discussed the news on Australian talk show, The Project, and became emotional when she spoke of the pregnancy.
“It’s just so good to be able to talk about it as it’s been a really private journey,” she said.
Fifi made the decision to use a donor from the outset
“It was the right path for me and my family to go through it with the help of a donor,” she said.
“I went to the clinic, I think most women in their late 30s would know that when you walk in to see an IVF specialist and you’re shown the graph, that gives you a very rude shock about your chances.
“I was given a seven per cent chance of having a baby, so it’s still a bit of a shock for me. It’s still sinking in, but we’re just really thrilled.”
