In her public statement, Nadia wrote: "I was asked if I was interested in taking part of The Full Monty #LadiesNightAU when I was 6 months pregnant."
"Initially, I was hesitant but once I found out the reason behind it - it was something very close to my heart and I felt extremely passionate about raising awareness for breast cancer and women’s health issues."
"I am sure you have all been touched by someone that has been affected by breast cancer. I personally had my own little scare in my early 20’s when I had to get a lump surgically removed, it ended up being benign but those few weeks to months were so scary. I had such an amazing experience with all the women."
"We all bonded and shared our own reasons for doing it. It was shot in March this year which feels like a lifetime ago but I feel so blessed I got to be a part of it. And yes it was bloody scary getting on stage and dancing - especially so close to just having Henley."

“I was so post-partum and in the throws of being a mum, so it was a challenging and the show was shot up in Sydney,” Nadia said, adding that she brought her sons Henley, 11 months, and Aston, 3, to the filming, along with her mother.
Nadia also spoke to Who in her first public interview since her split, sharing she drew strength from the survivor stories of Rachelle Panitz, Founder and Managing Director of So Brave, and Tina Doueihi, who has modelled for the calendar and is an ambassador for the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
“Their stories were beautiful and just so incredible. You don’t realise that [breast cancer] can affect so many young women as well – and neither of those women have a family history, either,” Nadia said.
After seeing the calendar, Nadia said she thought the result was “amazing.”
“I’ve never seen anything like it. These women decked out in paint – it looks like a big piece of art.”
