TØNSBERG (See and Hear): Happiness was in the air when ex-football player John Arne Riise (40) and his wife Louise Angelica Riise (30) in 2018 found out that they were expecting their first child.
Then the profiled celebrity couple had struggled for a long time to have children – but now the accident had finally turned around. His son Colin (1) was born in August 2019 – a day the famous “football lady” remembers for better or worse.
– Now it’s starting to get so long ago that I have suppressed the worst pain. Now I feel more that I have forgotten how much it hurt, so now I say to myself that “I could easily have done that again”, says Riise when See and Hear meets her for a chat in Tønsberg center.
She has long been comfortable with her new life as the mother of one-year-old Colin. Glitter and glam have been replaced with early mornings and driving and picking up at daycare.
– I really enjoy the role of mother, we enjoy ourselves a lot during the day, and especially now that we are so much at home, the 30-year-old says.
– Enjoys himself very much
A normal day with the Riise family starts early in the morning, often already at 06.00. Then little Colin wakes up, and then follows the morning with breakfast, watching TV and playing before the one-year-old is sent to kindergarten.
During the day, the ex-football player spends a lot of time training, while Louise Angelica Riise works from home.
– He really enjoys the kindergarten, but it’s a little nice to be with mum and do a little something else, says Riise about the son, who for the occasion is with mum at work.
Colin recently learned to walk properly, and is at a stage where he explores a lot and runs around, reveals the proud mother.
– You have to be careful, says Riise, and juggles between holding the See and Hear microphone and little Colin on his lap.
Two close children has always been the plan. In interviews with the press, the Riise couple have told about the difficulties of having children – without putting anything in between.
– But what are two close? It’s a little nice now that Colin is in kindergarten, and you get some time for yourself. But I still stand for the fact that I want two close ones, but I have not set a deadline, says the 30-year-old to Se og Hør.
More time together
The corona pandemic has led to the family spending more time together in the house at home in Tønsberg. The husband’s coaching job in the city was put on hold as a result of strict infection control measures in sports.
– It is a long time to be together on top of each other, which most people have probably known a bit about. But we have used the time very well and spent time with Colin. We have gone on many walks in our neighborhood, in the woods and not least down by the water. He has been very lucky to have had his parents there all the time in his first year of life, says Riise.
The 30-year-old also says that they set aside a lot of time for play and fun in their son’s room.
– He has got a small toy kitchen, and it worked, so we actually sit a lot in his room and play and build lego, and read books, so a lot of our time is spent during the day, she says.
– Will there be a lot of arguing between you and John Arne?
– I do not want to say that there is an argument, but you go a little on top of each other and get a little annoyed that the dishes have not been taken and that there is a lot of dirty laundry and things like that, but beyond that it has gone very well.
– Innmari grateful
The road to the birth of Colin in August 2019 has been long. For Louise Angelica, it was a matter of course to share her challenges with getting pregnant with the press and on social media.
– What was the toughest thing?
– It was probably the disappointment every time you took a pregnancy test that became negative. Because I think in the end that one almost imagines being pregnant without being. You go and look for signs. It is a kind of disappointment and despair over one’s own body, and one begins to doubt because it does not work, Louise Angelica Riise says frankly.
The dream is to be able to expand the family and make Colin the big brother. Whatever the outcome, the 30-year-old is not afraid of not being able to get pregnant again.
– We have been public that it was not quite easy for us. You never know how long it will take, either. But if that happens, it’s going to be amazing, and if it’s not, I’m just very grateful to have Colin. We only take it as a great joy if we get it again, the flu smiles.
