Channel Nine personality Erin Molan has been rushed to hospital following a nasty fall, The Daily Telegraph exclusively reports.
The 35-year-old is currently four months pregnant with her first child and is expected to front The Footy Show in a few weeks. According to the report, Erin collapsed at work and was rushed to hospital soon after. Witnesses suggest that she’d hit her head.
Tests at the Royal North Shore hospital in Sydney quickly discovered that the journalist had a low blood sugar count, causing her to faint. Thankfully, both mother and baby are still in good health.
The Daily Telegraph suggests that Erin may have skipped breakfast, causing her sugar levels to drop. The star was noticeably absent from her 2GB radio show on Saturday afternoon. She has since returned to social media, although she is yet to comment on the incident.
Meanwhile, Channel Nine’s Wide World of Sports suggests that the mother-to-be was keen to head back to work as soon as possible. “Her work ethic is second to none,” Nine’s director of Sport, Tom Malone said. “Right from the outset, we’ve told Erin that her health and her baby’s health are the first priority and whatever precautions we need to take around that we will.”
Since announcing her pregnancy, Erin has been sharing updates with her fans online. In one adorable social media host, she suggested that her grandma was excitedly knitting clothes for her baby.
She shared a photo of some tiny booties, along with a vintage knitting book. “Granny is knitting our bub booties from the same knitting book she used to make booties for my Mum when she was born over 60 years ago,” she wrote.
And, despite usually looking her best on TV, she shared another post to reveal that pregnancy wasn’t always easy. “I feel it’s important for other pregnant women to know that there is a very real and non-glam side to my pregnancy too,” she said.
This isn’t a ‘pity me’ post… just an FYI for the sake of accuracy! I have received so many beautiful comments and messages over the past few weeks about how well I look on TV and that I am glowing through this pregnancy etc… I obviously appreciate them very much… BUT I feel it’s important for other pregnant women to know that there is a very real and non-glam side to my pregnancy too. I’m working daily at the moment so some VERY talented souls are dressing me and doing my hair and my make up every afternoon for news. How I look ready to go ‘on-air’ isn’t how I arrive at work or wake up. I am sick every single day… no ‘better after 12 weeks’ for me unfortunately. I often have to run out of the hair and make up room multiple times unwell. Twice – once at radio and once at tv – I have been likened to a ‘walking corpse’ (in a nice way – no malice – the resemblance was uncanny)I spend most days ill in bed until I have to get up and go to work. Today – I spent an hour on the bathroom floor unable to get up – and have had to call in sick to work for the first time since getting pregnant… I can normally work through anything so I found doing that incredibly hard. So whilst I am very blessed to be carrying a child when so many desperately want to and can’t – like most women the reality of this pregnancy is completely unglamorous in ways far too graphic to share properly here!Ps – still feel free to tell me I’m glowing – even if it is faux and applied in brush strokes out of a bronzing compact – it makes me feel better!!! Pps – and don’t get me started on hormones… Xxx

She pointed out that she felt sick each day and that she was once called a “walking corpse”. The star continued: “So whilst I am very blessed to be carrying a child when so many desperately want to and can’t – like most women the reality of this pregnancy is completely unglamorous in ways far too graphic to share properly here!”
