Tracy Grimshaw turns 50: Why she has no regrets

Monday, May 31, 2010
Tracy Grimshaw turns 50!

As A Current Affair’s Tracy Grimshaw celebrates her milestone birthday, the respected TV host tells Woman’s Day why she feels nothing but blessed.

Tracy Grimshaw turns 50 this week and, unlike many women her age, will not have a husband or children by her side to celebrate the big occasion.

But don’t expect the host of Nine’s A Current Affair to be crying into her birthday cake, lamenting lost opportunities. Instead, Tracy will be celebrating what she considers the best time of her life both professionally and personally.

“Age is almost irrelevant these days – almost,” Tracy says of her milestone birthday in an industry where “older” women are the exception rather than the rule.


“I think it’s a shame when women sometimes feel uncomfortable about disclosing their age. The only way you can make that discomfort go away and the only way to address that weird stigma is just to stare it down, to refuse to be cowed by it or play by those rules.”

The respected journalist adopts the same “stare ’em down” attitude when questioned about her personal life. She understands people are interested in her life off-screen, but remains adamant about keeping it private.
