The revelation that Fifi Box is having Grant Kenny’s baby came as a shock to Lisa Curry, but now the former golden couple are closer than ever.
Lisa Curry has always been a fighter with a huge heart. Now she’s proving to be an inspiration once again, rising above the pain and shock of reading about Grant’s love child with radio host Fifi Box in a media report, to forgive her estranged husband.
Lisa has met and likes Fifi, say close friends. She feels for the radio host with the spotlight on her pregnancy, as Lisa has played out much of her life with Grant under intense public scrutiny. And it was Lisa who insisted the family, including their three “embarrassed” children, Jaimi, Morgan and Jett, still get together for to Christmas and help Grant come to terms with becoming a dad again at 50.
“At first Lisa was speechless and refused to believe it was true,” reveals one of her neighbours. “Then she rushed to check it with Grant and was floored – it was a hard conversation for them both. “She can’t believe he didn’t tell her long before, and is hurt. Although she understands better than anyone how he shuts down when he’s under pressure – and she wants to be there for him still.”
What hurt Lisa most was that Grant had known about the love child – the result of a six-month secret fling with Fifi – for months but couldn’t bring himself to tell her. “The baby news rocked Lisa,” confirms one surf club confidant, who says locals in Mooloolaba, Queensland, were stopping Lisa in the street to show their support. Grant was reportedly furious when the paternity of Fifi’s baby was revealed in the media – despite his insistence on privacy.
