My Kitchen Rules star Monique Fitzgerald says she would never have fallen pregnant if not for inspiration from host Pete Evans to change her lifestyle.

The MKR police officer and husband Matthew already have four children with the two youngest born through IVF.

Inspired by MKR host, Pete Evans, Monique has said she switched to a paleo diet. It is that diet change that she credits with helping her to fall pregnant with her ‘miracle’ fifth child.

“I absolutely think converting to paleo had something to do with me falling pregnant,” she told New Idea.

“We can thank Pete for this baby!”

Congratulations! I honestly have not doubt that a diet change helped her conceive. She certainly wouldn’t be the first person.

We would love to hear what lifestyle changes YOU have made to help conceive your little miracles.

  • Congratulations! But why are you still making headlines? You were a contestant, not even a finalist, in a cooking competition. To me, this doesn’t warrant you still making news. Same for all reality tv competitors. You’re playing a game, that’s that! Now go away


  • As soon as I stopped stressing I became pregnant.


  • Congratulations to them on their news. Being less stressful about conceiving also seems to help one conceive – look at all those babies conceived while on holidays.
