She has always chosen to keep the identity of the couple’s sperm donor private, even refraining from disclosing any details in her memoir Rolling With The Punchlines.
“It really pisses me off when I get complete strangers coming up to me after a gig and asking where we got the sperm from,” she told The New Zealand Herald in 2016.
“It's like asking a straight guy what style he used to knock up his wife, or a straight couple if they're having fertility problems.
She added: “Aside from that I do love it when people come up and talk to me. It's what makes my job so amazing. Heaps of them say, ‘Can I have a hug?’ I say, ‘Yes you can. I wish I could have a picnic at a park and hang out with all these people.”
Urzila was forced into quarantine for weeks in 2020, after a COVID-19 outbreak on the set of The Masked Singer shut down production.
As well as isolating in Melbourne, she then had to see out another 14-day quarantine period in Auckland before she could return home to her family.
She filmed the finale of The Masked Singer from her Auckland hotel room and appeared via video link.
While it wasn’t all smooth sailing, Urzila joked that she actually enjoyed hotel quarantine because she got some much-needed alone time.
“What a God damn nightmare it would be to be stuck in a hotel room with two kids,” she told the Daily Telegraph.
“I’d have been making a shiv on the first day,” she joked.
She revealed that being holed up in a hotel room all by herself had actually allowed her to indulge in some luxuries she hadn’t been able to enjoy for years.
“I love my own company. I've had a bubble bath every day since I've been here. Because I can,” she said.
“If I try and have a bath at home those kids try and get in with me and that's not what a bath is about.
'That just takes all the leisure time out of it. You know, now I'm sitting on the plug and they make you be on the tap side and the cold water tap that never ever drips normally, will drip on you.”
