Fifi Box wants to be a role model for single mothers across Australia.

‘It’s important to point out and educate that families come in all different shapes and sizes,’ the radio personality said.

‘Because I’m in the media and have a profile and platform, I’m able to shape and shift that, but it is frustrating,’ she added.

Fifi has two daughters, Trixie, eight, and Daisy-Belle, two.

She recently released a children’s book titled Minty Mae Gray and the Strangely Good Day, which she dedicated to her daughters. 

‘I’m so excited my new baby is about to be published and coming out in October!’ she wrote on Instagram in July.

‘This is Minty Mae Gray and I’m so happy she’s coming to life,’ she added.

‘I wrote this story because as the mum of two girls growing up in an image [and] appearance obsessed world.’

The Fox FM star shares Trixie with her ex-partner Grant Kenny, 57, and welcomed Daisy via IVF and an anonymous sperm donor.

She shared a lengthy Instagram post last year explaining how Daisy had been suffering from sleep regression and she’d reached out to a sleep consultant for help.

'Because I'm in the media and have a profile and platform, I'm able to shape and shift that, but it is frustrating,' Fifi added

‘I recently shared the struggles I’ve been having as a mum with a baby that stopped sleeping for longer than an hour in lockdown,’ she said.

‘I’m not very good at asking for help, and because I love my kids so much I feel like it is my job alone to care for them.

‘I was being strangled by the guilt that I was letting them both down and I wasn’t good enough. But thanks to all the love and messages I received I realised I was not a failure for asking for help.’
