Nickelodeon Exec Ross McGraw and His Wife Jordi Lippe-McGraw Announce Their Pregnancy

A couple that promised each other that they would visit all seven continents before having children just announced their pregnancy — in Antarctica!


Travel writer Jordi Lippe-McGraw and her husband Ross McGraw, Director of Partner Marketing, New Business at Nickelodeon and Viacom and a top internationally ranked Team USA triathlete, posted a picture of themselves — and a wandering penguin — at a volcano to share the news on Instagram and Facebook.

It is the last continent that New York Upper West Siders Lippe-McGraw, 31, and McGraw, 32 — high-school sweethearts who got married in 2015 — had to check off the list.

“Ross and I have always loved traveling and have been lucky enough to see a lot of amazing places together,” says Lippe-McGraw, who occasionally contributes to The New York Post. “Before we got married, we decided to make a pact to visit all the continents before having children as a fun challenge. Antarctica happened to be the last, a trip we planned two years earlier, and I happened to be pregnant. So, what better way to announce it?”

The pair reached the far-flung destination by flying to Buenos Aires, Argentina, on Jan. 12, then taking a flight to Ushuaia, Argentina — the southernmost city in the world — and then boarding a boat through the Drake Passage to Antarctica.

The baby is more well-traveled than most adults, having already been to nine countries, including the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, Switzerland, Sweden, Italy, Argentina and Antarctica.

And there’s more to come: The couple plan on going to Peru in February for a Amazon river cruise.

Congrats Jordi and Ross!! :)
