Turia Pitt Shares Photos Of Her Baby Bump As She Prepares To Give Birth To Her First Child!
Turia Pitt, who is 40 weeks pregnant with her first child, shared photos of her “basketball belly” to Instagram this week. The motivational speaker is expecting a son with fiance Michael Hoskin any day now.
‘Who needs a basketball with a bump like this,’ Turia captioned the photo, also adding the hashtag #amirightladies.
‘It’s good, he’s kicking, I can feel him moving around. I’ve felt really great this whole pregnancy I’ve felt really smug,’ Turia said in an interview.
Turia revealed she had discovered she was pregnant in Nepal, just days before she was due to depart for Mount Everest Base Camp. Speaking to 60 Minutes she said she had taken six pregnancy tests before sharing the news with her partner Michael (pictured below).
‘I had a mouthful of toothpaste,’ Michael said. ‘I couldn’t really say much but I knew what was going on and I was just – I was like wow I can’t believe it!’
Turia was severely burned in 2011 in a bushfire while participating in an outback ultramarathon in the Kimberley region in WA.
We are so excited by the impending birth of the couple’s first child and wish them nothing but health and happiness. Turia’s bravery is an inspirational to everyone she meets and we have no doubt she will make the most amazing mother!
