Fifi Tells Her Daughter Trixie Belle That She'll Soon Have A New Sibling
Project host Fifi Box has shared a video of the moment she told her daughter that she was pregnant.
The 41-year-old, who also hosts a radio show on the Hit Network’s Melbourne station FOX FM, revealed her IVF donor pregnancy via Instagram on Sunday night.
“Can I tell you something?” she asks her 5-year-old daughter, Beatrix ‘Trixie’ Belle in the video. “You know how Mummy’s been really really sick lately... Did you know that it’s good sick? Cause do you know what’s in my tummy?”
Trixie gets the idea straight away.
“Baby?” she suggests.
“Yes! We’re having a baby!” Fifi confirms with a grin.
But Trixie’s sceptical.
“For real?” she asks, before grilling further... “How do you know?”
Fifi reassures her that the news comes straight from a doctor, and in her post went in to more detail.
“A few years ago I made an appointment to see an IVF specialist, the amazing Dr Sameer Jatkar at Monash IVF, and I began an IVF journey to extend our little family. After a series of egg retrievals and freezing, last year I started the process to become pregnant via an anonymous donor.”
She counts her blessings, acknowledging that not everyone comes out of the IVF journey with such good news.
“I am still pinching myself that I have been this blessed and that this little miracle is growing within me, a much wanted and longed for sibling for a very excited big sister! I know the value of this miracle because I have seen first hand the heartbreak, tears and sacrifices so many women and couples suffer on their IVF journeys and my heart goes out to those who are facing that pain and struggle. It is not lost on me that I am one of the lucky ones.”
All of us at The Project are thrilled to hear Fifi’s news, and we wish her and Trixie all the best for their journey ahead!
