Solo mum Fifi Box prepares to welcome her first child.
Radio host Fifi Box is busy preparing for her baby, shopping for pink accessories, setting up a bassinet in her bedroom and sharing her excitement with fans and friends on Twitter. Fifi, 36, is still coming to terms with the breakdown of her relationship with former champion ironman Grant Kenny, 49, who was recently revealed as the baby’s father, as well as the challenges of becoming a single mum.
But she is refusing to let it get her down, taking to Twitter to urge her fans “to never regret anything that made you smile”. She also posted
a picture on Christmas Day of her new baby bassinet, saying, “Away in a manger … and the magic begins.” Fifi, who co-hosts a radio show on 2DayFM with Jules Lund and has appeared on Dancing With The Stars, told listeners she wanted to keep the identity of her baby daddy secret to protect his privacy.
Grant was later revealed as the dad but neither he nor Fifi have publicly confirmed it, although friends say the two are no longer in a relationship.
In another tweet wishing her fans a Happy New Year, Fifi said: “Remember life is short. Forgive quickly. Love truly. Laugh uncontrollably & never regret anything that made you smile.”
Fifi spent the holiday break in Melbourne with her mum, while Grant stayed in Queensland. Grant separated from Lisa Curry, 50, in 2009 but the former golden couple and their children, Jaimi, 25, Morgan, 22, and Jett, 18, looked happy and relaxed in a photograph posted on Christmas Day.
