Mary Coustas Reveals She's Pregnant in 60 Minutes Interview

Mary Coustas Reveals She's Pregnant

If you tuned into 60 Minutes last night you would have gone on an emotional journey with beloved Australian performer Mary Coustas, who rose to fame as her gregarious alter-ego Effie. Over the past few months Mary has been opening up about her pregnancy struggles, which have seen her (and her husband, George) suffer through multiple miscarriages and the stillborn birth of their daughter at 21 weeks, whom they named Stevie after Mary's father. Mary talked openly about going through IVF and even travelling to her native Greece for donor eggs, and detailed all the issues she encountered along the way — the experiences culminated in a memoir, All I Know, which was published earlier this year and ends with a letter to the daughter she never got to know.

Last night’s 60 Minutes interview wrapped on a very happy note as Mary and George revealed they’re 22 weeks pregnant — at 48 years of age and after everything they’ve been through, the couple were wary about sharing their news; George described their mood as “excited, but cautious.” They went back to Greece earlier this year for one more shot at donor eggs, and are now successfully pregnant with one healthy baby. Mary said, “I would have loved to have been a younger mum, but things don’t work out the way you hope. So do you give up hope altogether? Or do you dance with the circumstances? We strapped on the camouflage and stepped back into the warzone . . . We’ve won this time and the prize will be when we’re holding a healthy baby.” Congrats to Mary and George — you can watch the full interview here.
