After marrying Vincent Fantauzzo in a small Fijian ceremony in 2014, the 41-year-old fell pregnant.
She had just decided to take a break from acting for a while and spend time away from the cameras.
“… This amazing surprise occurred and that’s when I made a particular choice to have a break, a proper [two-year] break. I told myself, ‘I’m going to give this time to myself and my family, and enjoy my pregnancy’.”

For a long time before having her son, Keddie had faced the pressures of having children.
Previously discussing the topic, she said, “Why are we only considered successful if we can juggle family with a demanding career?”
But after meeting her husband, Keddie had a change of heart.
“Circumstances change. You meet someone and think, ‘I’d really like to have a child with you and I feel differently, and isn’t that wonderful?’ You start thinking, ‘Perhaps it is something I’d like to do’.”
Speaking about Valentino’s birth, who turned one earlier this year, Keddie tearfully said the moment was indescribable.
“When I was in it with Vincent, we were so together and it was lovely. I can’t really remember much before I had [Valentino] in my arms, but it was hands-down the moment beautiful moment of my life.
“To share that with Vincent was something else; indescribable, really great.”
After holding Valentino in her arms, all her plans of where she was going and who she would be as a mother were left behind.
