Miranda Tapsell has opened up about her ‘fears’ for her four-month-old daughter in the May edition of Marie Claire Australia, on sale from Thursday, April 14.

“I have a lot of fears for Grace’s future,” she tells the publication.

“There’s potential danger on our doorstep that I have no control over. I often feel like the dad in Finding Nemo – constantly worried – and I know that feeling is never going away, so I’ll have to find a way to deal with it.

“All I want is for Grace to be safe; that’s what I fight for.”

While being on the cover of any magazine is a significant life event, this one marks the first time she is introducing her gorgeous daughter to the world.


Miranda welcomed Grace in December with her husband of four years, James Colley.

“Christmas has come early for us as we welcome our Grace Birri-Pa Purnarrika Colley. Birri-Pa is Larrakia for Butterfly, Purnarrika is Tiwi for Water Lily,” she wrote on Instagram.

“Grace has entered the world adored by her mum and dad, as well as all her aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents and so many more.

“We are extremely grateful, overjoyed and so, so tired.”

The May edition of Marie Claire Australia is on sale from Thursday, April 14.
