Johanna Griggs: My baby battle

By Phillip Koch The much-loved TV star seems to have it all — but one thing is missing from her dream life... TV's golden girl Johanna Griggs is haunted by the fear she will never have the baby she so desperately wants. Johanna and her husband Todd Huggins have been battling to have a baby together since they got married in November 2006. But their desire to hear the pitter-patter of tiny feet has so far only been met with disappointment. Joh, who had a disastrous first marriage to actor Gary Sweet, is open about her devotion to Todd and their desire to have a child. She said months ago, "It's definitely what we both want. It gets you excited about what could be around the corner and you just feel like anything's possible." But that excitement has slowly turned into heartache, and the couple are now believed to be considering all possible options in their quest to have a child. "You just have to see her around kids to understand her maternal side and to know how frustrated she is about not getting pregnant," says one of her TV colleagues. "Johanna is the ultimate professional in front of the camera, but any time a baby comes on set she practically runs to be first one in line for a cuddle. She just melts — especially if it's a girl. "It's obvious to everyone around her that she feels destined to be a mum for a third time. Sadly it just hasn't happened yet — but you do get the feeling she thinks time might be running out."
