Mary Coustas welcomes beautiful baby girl!

After an incredibly emotional decade long battle to have a child, Australian actress Mary Coustas has welcomed a beautiful baby!

The 49-year-old and her husband George Betsis welcomed their long-awaited, "very cute" baby girl on Monday, and they clearly couldn’t be happier.

“We’re so very happy to announce the arrival of our much anticipated baby girl,” the excited pair told Woman’s Day via a representative.

“Baby and mother are in exceptional health, father still doing cartwheels.”

“Thank you for all your messages of support and love throughout this journey.”

Mary and George’s tough battle to have a baby has included repeated IVF attempts that used donor eggs and required trips to Greece.

The pair tragically lost triplets three years ago.

Despite the incredible loss, Mary has always allowed her strong will to be a mum overshadow her heartbreak.

“I didn’t feel it was fair to end the story there for us,” she told Woman’s Day earlier this month.

“I felt like for all those years, efforts and wishes, that couldn’t be the only result. It’s a matter of what you can withstand. Even after that massive loss, I felt I had the courage to keep trying. I was tempted to stop this last year because I just didn’t know how much more I could take. But sometimes the idea of stopping is harder than going on.”

Not long after her decision to keep trying, Mary fell pregnant. But throughout her pregnancy she remained cautious.

“After an experience like mine, and after all the public outpouring of support, and after all the stories that were sent to me, you realise you’re never safe. People have stillborns at 36 weeks. I don’t have an average experience behind me. I’ve just got to look forward and incrementally break it up in my mind.”

Now that their beautiful baby has safely arrived, the pair are excitedly making final changes to their daughter’s nursery and Mary is planning a baby shower.
