Sonia Kruger Opens Up About Her Pregnancy; "It's A Girl!"
Over the weekend, Sonia Kruger announced on her Twitter page that she is expecting her first child.
Last night on Channel Nine's A Current Affair, Kruger revealed that she's expecting a girl with partner Craig McPherson.
She also went through the details on how she was given an egg by a good friend and went through IVF.
"I wanted to be really clear today on the show with our viewers and let everybody know that I did go through IVF and I did have an egg donor," she told Richard Wilkins on her Mornings show.
"I have a very good friend who basically gave me an egg and that’s how this pregnancy came about."
"When you get to my age, to use your own eggs to have a baby, you’re not really going to be successful, I mean the odds are sort of one in a million to get there and my doctors have been very clear with me because I’ve been through IVF before."
Kruger says she's totally thrilled "and I think it’s entirely possible to be as in love with a baby that doesn’t necessarily share your DNA as it is when you adopt a child and fall in love with that child.
"So I just feel incredibly appreciative towards what (my friend) did for me and the fact that it worked, because for a long time I didn’t think it would."
The Big Brother host also explained how much of a rollercoaster the past few months have been.
"I saw a heartbeat, which I had never seen before, that was incredible ... I just thought ‘wow, this has never happened to me before’.
"I became paranoid, convinced I would go for the next scan and there would be no heartbeat.
"There’s still a long way to go but fingers crossed. The last 16 weeks have been on a bit of a knife edge," Kruger said.
Congrats again to Sonia and Craig. We wish them the very best.
