Erin Molan opens up about trolls, bullying and being a role model for her baby daughter.
Sports presenter and mother Erin Molan isn’t afraid to admit she’s only human.
The 36-year-old has experienced her share of heartbreak and bullying, being a woman in the spotlight – although since having her baby girl, Eliza, 1, all that has faded into the background.
Speaking to New Idea, Erin says having her daughter has made her focus on the important things in life.
“[Motherhood] changes absolutely everything and in the most incredible way possible. It’s been the most life-changing thing that’s ever happened to me,” Erin gushes.
“It’s given me a very healthy dose of perspective. Things that used to worry me … now could not worry me if I tried. Little things that used to upset me don’t upset me anymore.”
Erin’s outlook has been shaped not only by her new bub – who she shares with policeman fiancé Sean Ogilvy – but also watching older sister Sarah suffer through cancer. Sarah was diagnosed with bowel cancer at 27, leading Erin to become a spokesperson for Bowel Cancer Australia and skincare brand Vixin, which contributes to the charity.
