Shelley Craft: My Milla's a little survivor!
“Having dogs prepares you for kids,” she says. “You deal with as many things as a pet owner as you do as a parent. It’s maternal love, responsibility, and the 24/7 care."

She’s one of TV’s bubbliest personalities, and with the birth of her first baby, Shelley has even more reason to smile.

When a couple bring their first baby home, they naturally expect there to be a few dramas. But, in the case of Shelley Craft and her husband Christian Sergiacomi, their daughter Milla – born August 24 – has been nothing but a perfectly behaved dream.

Instead, it’s one of the beaming couple’s “other kids” that’s causing a commotion when Woman’s Day visits Shelley and Christian at their idyllic Byron Bay home on the NSW far north coast. Their seven-year-old female boxer dog, Beau, is blowing up like a balloon from a bee sting, her big brown eyes staring plaintively as they are swallowed by her fast-expanding jowls.

While Christian carries the distressed dog to the car for a dash to the vet, Shelley, 34, shakes her head knowingly, then looks down at Milla asleep in her arms.

“Having dogs prepares you for kids,” she says. “You deal with as many things as a pet owner as you do as a parent. It’s maternal love, responsibility, and the 24/7 care. “Beau has been a handful all her life – always getting into trouble. Milla, on the other hand, has been perfect. I’m hoping raising kids will be easier than raising dogs.”

So far, Milla looks like she’ll fulfil Shelley’s hopes, as the placid little girl is passed around for cuddles, even receiving a lick from her “big brother”, six-year-old boxer, Jackson.
