Brisbane radio host Abby Coleman made an emotional announcement live on-air on Monday morning, sharing the news that she and her husband Scott Burdon are expecting their third child.
The 36-year-old broke down as she said it’s been a “hard time” for her family, after she experienced a series of miscarriages. “You’re trying to find joy but it’s so much fear,” she told co-hosts Stav Davidson and Matty Acton. “It’s been really stressful.”
“It’s just really hard telling people you’re pregnant and I think the worst thing is un-telling people as well when you have miscarriages… and we didn’t know why we were (miscarrying),” she said.
The Hit105 host, who is already a mum to Finlay, 6, and Jagger, 3, described how her husband’s attempts to soothe her were sometimes unintentionally hurtful. “He was like ‘oh well if it’s meant to be it’s meant to be’,” she said, “and that’s always hard to hear when you’re being so desperate and I just became so obsessed with trying to have a third”.
Had a vision that this would be a perfect family moment….We would tell the boys and they would be so excited that we would have to quickly tell family and friends as they would tell the world but alas the only one who sounded surprised was @seedsman17 holding the camera and I assure you hubby already knew. Nine weeks have past since we filmed this and none of my boys have told a single person ???????? Mother Nature has been a bit of a bitch in letting us have another pregnancy that’s progressed but with tears and 184 “she’ll be right we’ll get there” comments from hubby we are finally excited to say we are having another baby. Love and luck to those couples who are having a hard time trying. #surprisegender Rest assured our eldest got a tissue after filming and we explained to our youngest that he wasn’t the one having the baby ????
