Lindy and fiancé Adam Ellis are expecting a baby together, with the model mum announcing her pregnancy on Instagram over the weekend.
Mum of many
The baby she and Adam are expecting later this year, is his first and Lindy’s fourth. Lindy – now 16 weeks pregnant – is mum to 6-year-old Frankie, 9-year-old Rocco and 11-year-old Stella with ex-husband, Olympic swimmer Michael Klim.
Speaking to The Daily Telegraph back in May about her planned 2018 wedding and her hopes for the future, she made it clear that more babies would be ideal.
“I would like to have some more children, or one more child. Adam doesn’t have any children of his own but he’s an incredible stepfather,” she said. “I’m getting on, getting older. I’ve always said I’d like to have four children but we’ll see.”
It’s clear now that she was already expecting as the interview was published, but perhaps waiting until she was well into the pregnancy to announce her exciting news.
Lindy’s relationships have been in the spotlight since her high-profile split from Michael in early 2016. Amidst all that speculation and chatter, she’s been busy creating a new life for herself and her kids, this new baby further proof of that.
Frankie, Rocco and Stella live in Bali, their mum’s homeland. (Lindy is connected to Denpasar royalty and is in fact an actual Balinese princess.) She says her kids are really happy living the relaxed island life.
“The school they’re at is so wonderful,” she told news.com.au late last year. “While they do come back to Australia every now and then, they prefer to stay in Bali because it’s their home and it’s what they’ve known for the last four years. Life in Bali for them is just so good, because their friends are around, they surf, they ride their bikes and go skate boarding and horse riding all the time.”
She said she’s forging ahead and making her kids – and herself – a priority now that she’s moved on from an obviously painful break-up.
“After what has been a really tough year, I’ve had to really look after myself and make sure that I’m OK and check in with myself and check in with my kids,” she said.
It seems a whole new chapter has opened up for her in 2017, with Adam as co-pilot.
We wish her every happiness.
