Falkiner and her Channel Nine journalist fiancee have been very open about their struggles with fertility and have described their IVF journey as often “traumatic” and “lonely”.
“Obviously you have your partner but it can actually feel like a really lonely process,” Falkiner said in The Daily Telegraph.
“It is you and your body against all odds. Women don’t really talk about it until after the fact. It can be really quite traumatic. Fertility can be a scary word we don’t really like to talk about. Every day is hard. I have never questioned myself and my body so much.”

“Trying to do all the things to make myself the perfect home for a little human, but sometimes even that is not enough. It’s a struggle mentally and physically and I just want to say to anyone else out there on this journey you are not alone.”
Despite all the heartache, the pair who got engaged last year were happy to reveal the exciting pregnancy news. “We did it my love,” Willis wrote on Instagram. “It’s hard to put into words how incredibly proud I am of you. All of our family dreams are finally coming true.
“Feeling incredibly blessed and absolutely over the moon to begin this new chapter of our lives. I can’t wait to be a Mumma with you!”
Although Falkiner is carrying this baby, Willis, 30 says she too wants to have the experience of being pregnant but says she was happy to wait because of her partner’s age.
“Fi will go first just because of the body clock on fertility so her going first is best. I will give it a crack after we have our first child,” she said.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
