Pregnant Red Wiggle Caterina Mete Prepares for Maternity Leave as She Anticipates the Arrival of Her Twin Baby Girls

Caterina Mete has revealed she has gone on maternity leave as she counts down the days until welcoming her twin babies.

The Red Wiggle, 43, announced in February that she is expecting twin girls after undergoing IVF with an anonymous sperm donor.

Now, Caterina has marked a major pregnancy milestone as she had her last day working with children’s group The Wiggles before giving birth.

Caterina took to Instagram on Friday to share photographs from a sweet baby shower they hosted for her before she headed off on maternity leave.

In the snaps, Caterina cradled her blossoming baby bump in her Red Wiggle outfit as she flashed a huge smile for the cameras.

She posed alongside a pink block sign reading ‘baby’ and an array of pink snacks, including cupcakes, marshmallows and sweets.

The delicious food spread was decorated with baby-themed paper signs such as dummies, bottles, baby grows and nappies.

Caterina also shared a picture with her fellow Wiggles Tsehay Hawkins, John Pearce and longtime member Anthony Field, as well as members of the production crew.

In an accompanying caption, Caterina gushed over the special send off as she heaped praise on all of her colleagues. 

She penned: ‘Thank you so much to my Wiggly family for such a beautiful send off today.

‘So grateful to be a part of such a brilliant team of people! Next time I see you all I will have two little girls by my side, can’t wait!’

After becoming a regular dancer for The Wiggles, performing in recordings and recording with them, she then became Red Wiggle in 2022.

Caterina confirmed she is pregnant with identical twin girls earlier this year after undergoing IVF at a fertility clinic with the help of an anonymous donor.

The children’s TV star, who is single, shared her jovial baby news to Instagram at the time, sharing a sweet snap of her holding up two child-sized Red Wiggle costumes.

‘Hey, everyone. I’ve got some exciting news to share with you all. I’m pregnant with twin girls!’ she gushed.

‘I’m due later in the year, but I wanted to share this news with you now now, as I’ll be seeing many of you at the upcoming Wiggles shows… and as you can see, my girls are already starting to make an appearance.’

Reflecting on her exciting news in a press release, Caterina added: ‘Becoming a mother has always been a dream of mine. I feel overwhelmingly blessed to share that I am expecting two beautiful little miracles.

‘This journey has been challenging, but filled with so much love and support. I am immensely grateful for the incredible team at my fertility clinic and the technology that has made this possible.’ 

Caterina – who is set to welcome her babies around July – went on to say that she can’t wait to meet her bundles of joy and begin the new chapter of her life.
