Hot on the heels of Turia Pitt sharing her first baby bump photo, the inspirational Australian has revealed her baby's gender.
"We arrived back just in time for our 20 week scan which was really cool," Pitt wrote on her blog after she and her husband returned from Namibia. "Crazy to think that our new little third wheel is halfway cooked! The scan told us we’ve got a kid with an X chromosome and a Y chromosome on the way …. yep, it’s a boy!"
The 29-year-old former mining engineer announced she is expecting her first child with husband Michael Hoskin on 60 Minutes last month, and posted the above baby bump photo while they were travelling through Namibia together.
The bushfire survivor is due to give birth to her first child in December, revealing to 60 Minutes that she discovered she was expecting a few days before she was due to fly to Mt Everest.
She told Hoskin while he was brushing his teeth. "I just walked in and I left the pregnancy stick there," she said.
Turia also told the TV programme that she is confident her longtime partner Michael will make a brilliant father.
"He had to look after me for years, and he was so patient, so caring. I think those qualities, especially in a parent, are really desirable."
Congrats again to the happy couple!
