Rebecca Maddern is 39, one of Australia’s most sought-after TV presenters and now, thanks to a certain role on the AFL Footy Show, is also one of our most recognised faces.
She’s married, successful, whip-smart and has charisma in spades.
And yet, despite all of this, people still want to know if – or when – she will become a mother.
In this week’s Stellar magazine, Maddern says she finds the piqued interest in her personal life peculiar. Especially, of course, since her 42-year-old co-host Craig Hutchison isn’t ever faced with the same onslaught of questioning.
“It’s a no-win answer because if I say, ‘No, I don’t want children,’ then the stereotype is that I’m a hard-faced b.i.t.c.h,” she tells Stellar.
