Kruger’s battle to become a mum has been an incredibly public one, with the former Dancing With The Stars host undergoing several unsuccessful rounds of IVF and suffering multiple miscarriages.

At 45, The Voice host was also told by specialists that she and her long-term partner 53-year-old Craig McPherson had zero chance of conceiving with her own eggs.

Incredibly, a good friend stepped forward, donating an egg to the couple and her daughter Maggie arrived nine months later.

“I have a very good friend who gave me an egg and that’s how this pregnancy came about," Kruger said at the time.

"When you get to my age – to use your own eggs to have a baby you’re not really going to be successful – I mean the odds are at around one in a million to get there and my doctors have been very clear with me, because I’d been through IVF before”.

Despite the challenges of parenting a toddler at 50, Kruger says that she'd do it all again in a heartbeat.  “I would love to,” she admitted. “But I really feel like I shouldn’t push my luck!”

McPherson has six children adult children from a previous relationship. The couple have said that their daughter's name comes from both Kruger's mother, as well as famed The Simpsons character, Maggie.

"If you knew my family you'd understand," Kruger said at the time.
