Erin Molan and her daughter Eliza have a close-knit mother and daughter relationship, and they are always sharing cuddles on Instagram.
The radio host fell pregnant with her only child eight months after she became engaged to her former fiancé Sean Ogilvy in 2017.
After two hospitalisations during her rough pregnancy, Erin safely gave birth to Eliza on 6th June 2018.
A Nine spokesperson broke the news via a sweet statement that read, “Everyone at Nine is so happy for Erin and Sean and the safe arrival of beautiful Eliza.
“We wish them well for the start of the next exciting phase and look forward to meeting the new Blues supporter when she is ready. Congratulations from all.”
Almost a year after giving birth Erin spoke to The Daily Telegraph about juggling motherhood and its challenges.
“It is the most amazing thing in the entire world times a billion, but it is also really bloody hard, that is just the reality of it,” she told the publication.
“It is a constant juggle trying to get the balance right and failing a lot of the time. I just figure I love her more than life itself, and for the moment, that is enough.”
The TV and radio personality also spoke candidly to Who Magazine in January 2021 about the relatable struggle all parents face when they can’t protect their children once they go to preschool.
“Her welfare, her happiness, her health is the most important thing in the world to me. She’s about to go up to the next group in preschool, and I’m terrified like, ‘What if someone’s mean to her?’ That terrifies me,” Erin shared.
Unfortunately, a few months later, in September 2021, Erin announced she had split from her fiancé.
Even though it had been a tough time for the presenter, she and Sean have created a loving environment for Eliza despite no longer being together.
In an interview with 9 Honey she opened up about the unique difficulties of co-parenting and getting used to time away from her daughter when she is at her dad’s house.
“I don’t think I’ll ever get used to not having her with me every night, but I also know she needs to see her dad, and it’s hard for him as well,” Erin said.
“I know a lot of parents would be able to relate to this, it is really hard.
“But I know wherever she is, with me or with Sean, she is so loved and adored, more than life itself, and that’s all I care about.”

“When your daughter is desperate for a dog but terrified of them… we can’t leave ‘Cuneena’ (???) (also a giraffe 🤫) at home anymore in case ‘she’ gets ‘scared’ or ‘hungry’… this is my life now… we have to lug ‘her’ everywhere… any hacks to get my 3 year old to move on that don’t involve getting a real life one???”
You’re never too old to have some playtime.
Time for some fun in the sun!
Even though Eliza isn’t a baby anymore, she still loves snuggling with her mum, and Erin posted this snap to celebrate the moment.
“King bed… still naps on top of me and I still hold her legs 🥰🥰🥰,” she gushed.
Erin carefully and gleefully watched over her daughter as she held a snake.
“Educational pub dates 👌🙏👏,” wrote Erin alongside this cute picture.
Eliza helped her mum out in the wardrobe department.
Erin shared this silly snap from her workouts in lockdown, and she captioned the moment, “You know it’s getting desperate when you look to your 3 year old for acknowledgment, reassurance and compliments 😬😳🙌.”
Erin and Eliza had a big long cuddle when they reunited. The radio host wrote, “Back home with my baby 💕💕💕.”
There is nothing quite like your baby falling asleep with you as a mother.
“First time she’s laid still on me like this since she was a newborn… my 🌏❤️,” wrote Erin.
Beach trips and salty kisses brought a smile to Eliza’s face.
Hughesy may have been trying to intercept the PM, but Erin and Eliza were more interested in seeing the sights.
“Sight seeing 💕💕💕 (and @dhughesy trying to intercept the PM… @therealedkavalee was at the gym 🙄),” she said.
The girls take on the halls of parliament!
“Always catch me stealing kisses from you… 🌏💕 #sundaylove,” Erin captioned this picture.
Eliza seemed keener on hugging her mumma than the baby duck.
“The balance/struggle/juggle is real 👍 (but wouldn’t have it any other way… well MOST of the time 😬) ❤️❤️❤️.”
For Eliza’s third birthday, they spent the day doing puzzles and eating lollies.
We bet Erin pretended she couldn’t see Eliza in the fridge when they played a game of hide and seek.
