Her first act? To turn the audience into balls of blubbering mess with a beautiful story about a man who lost his wife, and months later welcomed their baby boy.
As Lisa explained, young Queensland couple Bec and Gareth Arena wanted to have children, but realised Bec’s cystic fibrosis diagnosis would make it difficult, even life-threatening for her to carry a child to full-term.
Tonight on @theprojecttv I’m so proud to help tell the incredible story of Bec & Gareth, and Jess & Jeremy, and how tiny little five day old Rixon arrived in this world. It’s a story of surrogacy, deep friendship, incredible love, unimaginable loss, community support…and a beautiful little baby boy who is going to break your heart in the best possible way. @theprojecttv at 6.30 tonight. Hope you’ll join us!
