Here Anthony and Mikki are pictured with Lucia.
Anthony Field, the Blue Wiggle in the fantastic Australian preschool band The Wiggles, and his wife Miki welcomed their third child, Antonio Carlos, last Friday night, the musician’s publicist confirms.
Antonio, who is the couple’s first son, was born in Sydney’s Royal Prince Alfred Women and Babies Hospital after three hours of labor. He was one week overdue and weighed 7.7 lbs.
Anthony, 44, and Miki also have two daughters: Lucia Angela, 3, and Maria Claire, 18 months.
Anthony and Mikki were unsure as to whether or not they would be able to have children at all. Mikki suffered from the painful condition endometriosis, which is estimated to affect up to 10 per cent of women and causes up to half of female infertility.
“We didn’t even think we’d be able to have one baby, so to have a second one on the way is such a blessing,” Anthony shared a few years ago.
My thoughts: I too suffered from Endometriosis. It seems that many women delay having children until they are older. I was so scared that I would be infertile that having children became my foremost concern. I did not want to take any chances, and miss my opportunity to be a mother. I was very fortunate to find my soulmate at a very young age and have two beautiful children. I think what made such a huge impact on me was when I was 19 I woke from a laparoscopy surgery at Children’s Hospital in Boston hearing a 15-year-old girl crying out that her ovaries had just been removed at her parent’s consent. Stage 4 endo had been discovered during surgery. Her cries still haunt me. This surreal experience made it impossible for me to be casual about what would prove to be the defining moments of my life. Oddly enough, as terrible and painful as my endometriosis was when I was younger, I do not suffer from it anymore. I think that the surgery, having two children and birth control pills to have kept it away. Sorry for the long rant!
I love the Wiggles! I’ve never taken my children to a live performance but we have plenty of their videos!
