Staying In Tonight?




Making it Down Under.

On RTE One at 8.30pm.

Gareth Naughton writes:

On tonight’s episode viewers meet Rosie Nolan, a Waterford woman working in the Australian police force who is also a mum of seven.

Rosie (27) travelled to Australia at the age of 18, having had her application to join the Gardaí turned down with the advice to go and get some life experience before trying again later.

She arrived in Australia as a backpacker, eventually joined the Brisbane Police and never looked back. Nine years later, she has seven children and lives happily in the suburbs with her wife Natasha.

      God bless her energy.
      Though it doesn’t have to be her having them: they’ve probably shared the load.

    I wonder does Ozzy law require the fathers’ to be non-anonymous, or if, indeed they are recognised on birth certs. Or maybe they’re well known to mothers and children.

    I guess I should watch and find out.

        They’ve made a TV documentary all about their lives. It’s not unreasonable that someone asks questions.

          In that case I’d like to know her choice of tampon brand, the circumference of her thighs and how many sexual partners she’s had. Since she’s obviously waived all privacy for vagina police like you.

            ah come on, nothing wrong with wondering the ins and outs of a situation (ooo err!) when it is being presented as an interest piece

            Oh that’s a bit hard on little newsy. He just wants to be sure that the contents of a woman’s uterus are fully licensed and registered, have the proper male safeguards in place and remain there for an appropriate length of time.

            Is it not a natural question to ask – when shown a TV documentary about it, not just of random people on the street – what does the father think of fathering 5 children (quintuplets? )?

            Same Old Queen, very naturally, made a gag about it below.

            Sperm donor, surrogacy, etc is all very interesting and this documentary gives it a public face and begs questions.

            I think it’s OK to ask these questions anyway. Not at a dinner party or on the street to a stranger, but certainly with a documentary, which, let’s be honest, would not have been made if a women didn’t have 5 babies.

      1. Formerly Known As

        There was a case a few years ago, where a doctor has fathered loads of kids at his sperm bank, so that may have caused a change to processes.

      Looking at the photo, most of the kids appear to be the same age. As can be the case with IVF, I’m thinking she may have had a few kids with each pregnancy.
      Maybe only pregnant a couple of times, quadruplets and triplets?

      It was my first thought too, thinking she must have been on maternity since she got there!

      1. some old queen

        There were only three pregnancies. Rosie had two and her other half was a bit pushed for time, so she five at once.

        The poor dog must have been a bit confused at first. I bet his nursing skills are great now though. Doubt if there is much sign of soft furnishings or delicate ornaments around that house mind.

          They look well behaved getting into and out of the van. Just one of the places discipline can break down!
