Teresa Palmer just announced her pregnancy in the cutest way

The pregnancy announcements are coming thick and fast with the latest popping up over the weekend thanks to Hacksaw Ridge star, Teresa Palmer.

“Twist and Shout!”

Yep! Actor Teresa Palmer, hubby Mark Webber and their kids – four-year-old Bodhi and almost two-year-old Forest – just announced they’re expecting a third child … a much hoped for baby girl.

Uploading a video reveal to Instagram, the couple’s kids donned masks and joined a family dance-off to The Beatles Twist and Shout. The cute clip reached peak excitement when Teresa flashed … her brand new blooming baby belly!

Mark then helpfully drew attention to the text scrawled on her pregnant tummy – the word “girl” surrounded by artistic flourishes.

“Yep we’re that dorky,” Teresa captioned the video, adding a rainbow emoji.

After spending the last few years raising little boys, they’re obviously excited to find out what being a girl-parent is like.

“Can’t wait to meet my girl …” Mark confirmed on his Instagram account.

“Overjoyed but mostly very grateful”

Content warning: This part of our story discusses the loss of a baby

As fans responded to this lovely news, Teresa posted a second bump shot and thanked them for their kindness.

“Thank you for all the beautiful messages. We are overjoyed but mostly very grateful,” she wrote.

This “grateful” announcement comes in the wake of a recent post where Teresa detailed the sad – and obviously scary – loss of a baby due to a ‘molar pregnancy’ in 2015.

“August 13, 2015; 7 weeks pregnant and waiting for the doctor to come in to see the heartbeat of our second baby,” Teresa posted last week to mark Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day. She went on to explain that things did not turn out the way she and Mark had hoped.

“A few minutes later she walked in, we were giddy with excitement, but we never got to see our baby’s heartbeat, instead we heard the words ‘I’m so sorry this baby doesn’t look viable’. The next few days were a blur of tests and specialists, a ‘molar pregnancy’ and it was ‘potentially cancerous.'”

“I needed surgery immediately. I was whisked away into the operating theatre to have a D & C. It was the first time I’d ever been in hospital. It was the most terrifying, traumatic and grief-filled experience we’ve ever been through. It still haunts us. We were lucky, it didn’t turn cancerous and I went on to give birth to a healthy baby 16 months later.”

This baby girl is obviously brilliant and perhaps “lucky” news for this family. We wish Teresa the very best and well pregnancy possible (and thank her for sharing the tricky bits AND the triumphs of parenting, too.)

My heart is with all of you who, like me, are the 1 in 4. Sending all my love on your journey through infertility, miscarriage, stillbirth and infant loss🙏 #miscarriage #1in4
