Though they’re now parents to two happy and healthy daughters, Chezzi and Grant Denyer have revealed that getting there wasn’t quite the smooth sailing process they had imagined.
Speaking to Stacey June and Kristie Mercer on a recent episode of The Thinkergirls podcast, Chezzi, a TV producer, said that fear struck seven months into her pregnancy with the couple’s youngest child, Scout.
“It was really strange and I don’t really know how to broach this, it’s just really personal,” Chezzi told June and Mercer. “I’m having a shower, struggling to shave my very swollen legs, when I feel at the top of my legs this lumpy grossness that feels like a swollen mozzie bite.”
Given that Chezzi was heavily pregnant at the time, she was unable to see what the lump was and understandably, began to panic.
“I’m thinking that my vagina is falling down my leg! There’s a big hard weird, squishy lump that starts at the top of my thigh and goes up to the lip of my vagina,” she said.

It was then that the television producer asked her Family Feud host husband to “get a light” and take a look at what the mystery lump, which Chezzi said felt like an umbilical cord, was.
