Turia Pitt shares gorgeous family news – and everyone’s excited

Posted in Pregnancy Announcements.

Life coach, author and former ultra-marathon runner Turia Pitt popped up on Instagram over the weekend to share some big news from her little family.

“We can’t wait to meet you”

Good Selfie writer Turia and partner Michael Hoskin revealed they are expecting a second baby! Hurrah!

The couple are already parents to a gorgeous little boy named Hakavai. He’s 20 months old and obviously more than ready to be a big brother (possibly before the year is out!)

“When Michael and I want to share big news, I insist on creating a Beyonce-inspired video montage. Baby #2. We can’t wait to meet you. PS I promise we’ll find you a more appropriate name soon.”

The video Turia’s talking about is a very gorgeous collection of sweet moments from this family’s life – including their most recent ultrasound.

Let’s hope that this second birth goes as swimmingly as it did with baby Hak’s. Turia shared her birth story in her subscriber newsletter, noting that it all started with eggplant parma … and a giant fart.

“At 40 weeks and two days, I saw my chiropractor and got my pelvis aligned,” Turia wrote.

“I swam a kilometre. I went to an acupuncturist. I made an eggplant parmigiana (I used a recipe touted all over the internet as the best labour inducing food out there – google ‘scalini’s eggplant parmigiana’ for the recipe.”

“Later, Mum and I were being silly on the couch, Michael was rolling his eyes at our shenanigans and out of nowhere, I did a massive fart and broke out in uncontrollable hysterical laughter. My waters broke too.”

“Another one through to the keeper!”

Famous friends and followers were equally delighted by this gorgeous family’s baby news.

“YELP! SQUEEP! COMMOTION! APPLAUSE!” beauty company CEO and author Zoē Foster Blake wrote.

“Beautiful news! Congrats guys ” model and mum-of-two Megan Gale commented.

“This is glorious news!!! Yippee little family!!!” ARIA award-winning singer and author Clare Bowditch posted.

“OMG!! Congratulations! Another one through to the keeper!!” surfing genius Layne Beachley posted.
Congratulations indeed!
