My Exciting Baby News…

Tania Zaetta’s pregnant at 48 with twins: “My donor egg miracle!”

Who Dares Wins star Tania Zaetta shares her biggest victory of all – motherhood! – with Womans Day

Tania Zaetta made her name overseeing crazy, incredible challenges on TV as the host of Who Dares Wins.

But nothing prepared her for the shock discovery she had left it too late to have a baby naturally, when she and partner Chris Rogers decided to take the first step towards parenthood three years ago.

“I drove home in tears to Chris and he was just so beautiful and supportive,” remembers Tania, 48,
who wanted to tell her inspirational story in Woman’s Day to debunk “fertility myths” she feels cost some women their chance of motherhood.

The only option

“It’s very confronting when you hear the number and quality of your eggs is quite low at 45. But there were so many woman claiming miracle babies at 45, I just thought 
it would happen quite easily.”

“But for lots of women it doesn’t. To be able to have 
an egg donor baby, that’s the miracle to me.”

Tania says she always knew she wanted to have children, but was also determined to wait to have babies when the time was right.

“I was always going to be 
a mum, but I was single for a long time, and I wanted to wait for the right man – and Chris was the right man,” she says.

Chris and Tania are overjoyed!

And it really was a case of love at first sight for Tania when she spotted Chris, who is 13 years her junior, during a girls pampering weekend at the famous Peninsula Hot Springs on the Mornington Peninsula almost seven years ago.”

“This gorgeous man walked by and we locked eyes and that was it,” she smiles, explaining that it was only a matter of three dates before she decided to move from the Gold Coast to the Mornington Peninsula to be with Chris.

“I came for a visit and never left!”

With “beautiful old soul” Chris happy to support any choice she made after Tania came to terms with her fertility heartache, the TV star spent the next two years considering her choices and researching options – in secret.

“I’m a very private person, so 
I just sat back and listened to everyone’s stories, and I had a lot of friends doing IVF, but not necessarily successfully,” she explains, adding that she eventually decided an egg 
donor was the only option.

Tania says she made the decision after reading about comedian Mary Coustas and 
TV star Sonia Kruger’s fertility challenges and their joy after giving birth to their daughters, at 49, with the help of donor eggs.

Tania became a household name back in the '90s.

Exceptionally lucky

“That was a game changer for me and it helped with my decision,” says the star, who 
also made it big in Bollywood.

“I really resonated with Sonia’s story because, like me, she is very fit and healthy, yet she was very open with her story and in reminding women you’re only born with a certain amount 
of eggs – and they expire.”

Tania reserves her highest praise for leading fertility expert Dr Nick Lolatgis, who helped Mary Coustas conceive in 2014 with a donor egg.

“I call him the baby maker,” says Tania.

He told her from the outset very few women over 45 fall pregnant without a donor egg.

It worked for Tania!

With his support, Tania and Chris went to Greece five months ago after deciding she wanted an anonymous donor rather than a friend or relative.

There they were matched with 
a donor who resembled Tania.

“We didn’t tell anyone except my mum Heather because 
I didn’t want that extra pressure,” she says, adding she had two donor eggs implanted, hoping one may result in their longed-for baby.

“I was exceptionally lucky because it worked the 
first time with IVF.”

Positive thinking

Tania supported her medical miracle with Chinese herbs, acupuncture and organic food, but also “willed this to happen with positive thinking”.

When she found she was pregnant two weeks after the procedure, she was blown away.

“I had tears of joy rolling down my face, and when the 
12-week scan showed a second heartbeat, it was absolutely incredible. We haven’t found out the sex of the two babies 
yet or decided on names. We just call them Lefty and Righty!”

Skip Through Life, But Don’t Skip Meals

Tania Zaetta - Skip through life, but don't skip meals April 2015

As featured in ‘Mornington Peninsula Magazine’

By understanding a few of my healthy eating tips you’ll be able to work towards your desired body and health goals no matter what your age, body shape or fitness level.

Tania Zaetta - Online Pilates Weightloss Program

Eating enough during the day is a simple guideline I’ve used for many years throughout my Tv and Media work and one that I learnt during my studies and research as a Natural Beauty Therapy and Pilates & Barre Pilates Instructor.

Fuel your body more to help weigh less

Your body needs a regular supply of nutrients each day in order for it to work properly. If you skip meals you will be more likely to make up for it by snacking on the wrong foods, or eating more than you should at the next meal.

A healthier way to lose weight is to eat more small meals throughout the day, which is something I teach all the ladies on my ‘6 Wk Trim & Tone’ Online Pilates & Weightloss Program.

Eating every 3-4 hrs including your snacks will help keep your metabolism cruising along nicely and your body fuelled for your daily activities.

Snacks Tip – 6-8 Almonds or ½ apple spread with 1 tbls Natural Peanut Butter makeTania Zaetta - Online Pilates Program - Almonds & Almond Meal sml 2 nutritious and delicious healthy snacks to have between your main meals. Serve both with a Green Tea to help fill you up and aid digestion.

There’s a variety of snacks to choose from with my Online Program along with over 70 of my ‘fast, easy, family friendly’ personal recipes so you’ll never get bored and they guarantee to keep your taste buds satisfied too – you should give them a try, they all work great for me!
