Caterina’s happy baby news comes just a few months after she announced she was pregnant.

The Red Wiggle has also been open about her experience navigating the challenges of IVF, and her decision to utilise an anonymous donor.

“I didn’t want to have any regrets,” the 43-year-old told 9honey Parenting of her decision to become a single mum.

“I’m a person who likes to do things on their own and I’m happy with my own company so to speak.”

“But I thought, ‘I don’t wanna have to wait for somebody who may or may not ever come’ or may come years down the track,” she continued. “So I just thought I have to do this.”

The 43-year-old went on to become the Head of Wardrobe, Dance Captain, Choreographer, and eventually, in 2021, the Red Wiggle.
