Ziggy must make a difficult decision.
In upcoming Home and Away scenes that will run in Australia, Ziggy is expected to announce that she is pregnant, but the news is not as happy for her as you might anticipate.
After receiving a sponsorship, Ziggy’s dream of becoming a professional surfer appeared to be on track to materialise. However, Ziggy is fully aware that having a child will cause the opportunity to pass her by.
Ziggy debates what is right and whether she would be able to give up her surfing dreams after deciding that it would be best to keep the pregnancy a secret from her boyfriend, Dean, for the time being.
While Dean is excited about the possibility of becoming a father, Ziggy quickly lets him know the reality, and he quickly realises that Ziggy does not share his enthusiasm.
The star of Ziggy, Sophie Dillman, stated the following to TV Week: “It raises a lot of questions. Many women experience this and feel as though they must make a decision, especially those who play professional sports.
“They don’t always go together all the time. She received everything she desired. Her dream is to be a surfer.”
Although Ziggy’s hesitation is primarily related to her job, she tells Dean that there is more to the tale and that her experience with her ex-husband Brody led her to believe that she would never be able to have children.
“She wanted a family when she was with Brody, but he made her doubt whether it would actually happen. Later, when she started dating Dean, she made the decision she didn’t want kids.
She is caught between pursuing the ambition she currently has and the one she has always had.
It appears that Ziggy will have to make a difficult decision soon. What will she choose, and will she and Dean agree on what they should do?
