Fifi Box and Grant Kenny – is baby No. 2 on the way?

Fifi Box and Grant Kenny have sparked a storm of rumour and speculation that they are planning another baby after ironman Grant secretly flew into Melbourne during the racing carnival.

Glowing with happiness, radio star Fifi Box couldn’t stop smiling last week after being reunited with her baby daddy Grant Kenny.

Sipping only water among the numerous champagne swillers in the Myer Marquee at Derby Day three days, Fifi, 37, seemed to be sporting a baby bump.

Three days later, despite friends saying that Grant, 51, is not a fan of racing, the still-handsome sports champion made a rare appearance at Flemington for the Melbourne Cup. What few knew though was that he’d secretly spent most of his time in Fifi’s home town enjoying precious time with Trixie.

After flying back to Australia from Paris, where he watched his eldest daughter Morgan, 23, in one of her last performances at the famous Moulin Rouge, he then competed in the Coolangatta Gold before making a beeline on Monday for Melbourne.

Catching up with daughter Jaimi, 27, who was already there, he rented a serviced apartment so he could enjoy private alone time with Trixie and Fifi without attracting attention.

“I’m very happy,” Grant exclusively told Woman’s Day at the Cup when asked about life as a new dad at 51. He has never before confirmed he’s the father of 19-month-old Trixie, who is the spitting image of his three children with ex-wife Lisa Curry, who have all fallen in love with their gorgeous sister.

Fifi was seen sipping only water at Derby Day where she appeared to be sporting a baby bump. 

Fifi Box and Trixie: We have fun without a baby daddy!

“He loved seeing Jaimi and Trixie spend time together – there’s nothing more important than family to Grant and any of his kids would tell you he’s the world’s best dad,” explained a family friend.

“No-one except Fifi and some of his closest friends even knew he was in Melbourne and that’s the way he likes it… he really is an extremely private person.”

“He adores the baby,” confirms another close friend, who says notoriously private Grant flies to Melbourne to see Trixie as often as he can and is immensely proud of the bond his kids share.

“She’s so much like the other kids, there’s certainly no doubting who the father is – Trixie is a Kenny through and through. He’d love to spend more time with her but it’s difficult for him to do so without attracting attention.”

While Fifi and Grant have made a pact to never discuss their relationship publicly, friends say he was incredibly supportive when she was pregnant with Trixie and they’ve never seen Fifi look happier.
