The term “no filter” could have been invented for Lisa Oldfield.
When the Real Housewives of Sydney star stepped into our podcast studio, there were some shocking statements about her husband’s relationship with Pauline Hanson, some questionable comments about her kids, plenty of no-holds-barred thoughts on the other housewives and A LOT of NSFW bits that had to be beeped out.
But for a woman who is currently in the spotlight for a show that often catches women fighting on camera, we were surprised to find out that if you’re friends with this woman, she’ll do anything for you.
She’ll give you the world.
And she recently gave a friend the greatest gift anyone could give.
Listen to Lisa Oldfield talk about giving her friend a baby with Mia Freedman on No Filter.
In an interview on the No Filter podcast, Lisa Oldfield told Mia Freedman that her sons, Harry, 6 and Bert, 4, have a 15-month-old biological brother.
Not your ordinary real housewife, Lisa is an account director in the tech world who also works with the Australian Egg Bank, encouraging young women to freeze their eggs.
After struggling with her own infertility, she wanted to help others going through the same thing.
So naturally, when her best friend had problems conceiving, Lisa offered to step in.
“I donated one of my eggs to a friend and she had a son,” the 41-year-old says.
“My best friend who was 41 at the time had been through IVF for two years… I said, well I obviously make good looking kids, do you want one of mine? And I donated my eggs to her.”
And so she had a third child, it just wasn’t her own.
