Wanna make a baby: Spielberg's proposal to Toowoomba mum
Chris CalcinoDecember 16, 2011
When Toowoomba mother Natalya Edsen was asked to make a baby for Hollywood director Steven Spielberg, she was torn between laughing and hanging up the phone.
Luckily, she heard her mystery caller out and the Kumiko Kids Reborn Nursery owner discovered she was destined to be a baby-maker for the stars.
"Out of the blue, I got a call asking me to design a 'reborn' doll for [hit TV show] Terra Nova. I was in the middle of a shopping centre. My mum came out of the shops, saw my face and asked me what was wrong. When I told her I was making a baby for Steven Spielberg, she couldn't believe it,'' she said.

"I was just hoping she wouldn't be eaten by a dinosaur! I still don't know if she will make another appearance, but I hope so. It's funny; I had never even heard of Terra Nova before they called me. Now I have to watch every episode, just in case,'' she said.
