Former television presenter Laura Csortan has announced she’s expecting her first child and the due date is only three days off her fortieth birthday.
The 39-year-old told Women’s Day she couldn’t be happier about tackling the upcoming November birth as a single mum.
“It’s exciting. It was unexpected but I’m very happy about it,” she said.
Csortan is a former host of The Great Outdoors and Wheel of Fortune after she was crowned Miss Australia in 1997.
The father of the child was said to have split with the former beauty queen before she knew about the pregnancy.
Csortan implied the father would have little-to-no involvement in the child’s day-to-day life but she would be happy for them to know who he was at a later stage.
“He respects my decision (to have the baby), and when the baby’s older I’m happy with her finding out who her father is. I’m going into this with an open mind,” she said.
