Chrissie Swan admits to smoking while pregnant

Wednesday, February 6, 2013

Chrissie Swan has opened her own can of worms after admitting to smoking while seven months’ pregnant.

The radio host and mother-of-two said she tried to quit the habit when she found out she was pregnant with her third child but found it too hard to go “cold turkey”.

The 39-year-old said the stress of her professional life, which includes her two radio shows and TV commitments, along with her personal life, were too much for her to handle so she decided to have a “sneaky cigarette” a few times a week.

“I made a deal. I would go easy with myself and smoke a few a week – only when absolutely necessary, after work alone in the car, and I figured it couldn’t do any damage and it would let me deal with properly quitting when I wasn’t so busy later on,” she said in a radio interview.

Chrissie admits she kept her sneaky smoking a secret, not even telling her family.

“I knew it was wrong but there is so much terrible judgment that only awful people and bad parents and idiots and bogans smoke during pregnancy, and I didn’t feel like I belonged in any of those categories so I kept it all under wraps and dealt with it how I could.”



"Woman’s Day will publish the photos of Chrissie Swan that are currently dividing the nation. Chrissie herself has admitted how grateful she is the photos were taken as they not only stopped her smoking but have sparked one of the most significant debates on women’s health in years," Woman’s Day editor Fiona Connolly said.
