On February 10, 2020, Anna Meares and Nick Flyger welcomed their first child, Evelyn Bette Meares Flyger.
Their daughter, weighing 3.39kg, was born at 12:07 a.m. on 10/02/2020. The next day, Anna announced the news on Instagram, citing motherhood as her greatest accomplishment.
Anna and her partner Nick announced her pregnancy with their first child in September 2019.
Anna Meares and her husband, Nick Flyger, have two children: Evelyn, a daughter, and Bill, a son.
Their son, William (Bill) Cossey Meares Flyger, joined their growing family on October 15, 2021. He was 47cm at birth and weighed 3.450kg. Bill weighed heavier than Evelyn by 0.06kg.
Her lifelong ambition had been to become a mother. She didn’t think she’d be a mother after her divorce from her first husband, Mark Chadwick. Fortunately, she found love again in the arms of Nick and became a mother twice.
“One of my first coaches, Marv [Martin Barras], used to joke that I already had my kids’ names on the doors,” Anna Meares said.
She was also a foster parent prior to having her daughter. Meares has cared for many children ranging in age from four to eight.
