While there hasn't been much happy news for the Wiggles in recent times, former Hi-5 star Charli Robinson has reason to celebrate.

The TV star and her racing driver partner, Liam Talbot, have announced that they are expecting a baby girl in January 2019.

The couple are holidaying in tropical Fiji for their final holiday together before they become mum and dad.

"Our Fiji holiday was our last as two! @liamtalbotracing & I are so excited. Baby girl due January #17Weeks #SoHappy #Excited #MeantToBe #Love #BabyMoon," Charli captioned her snap on Instagram.

It's a girl for Charli and Liam.

Talking to a local publication, the Getaway host revealed that the couple had suffered a silent miscarriage, just five weeks into the pregnancy.

"It was quite a shock to find out we were pregnant and then to find out it wasn't a viable pregnancy," says Charli.

"Afterwards was the tough part. I kept thinking I was broken because I hadn't had my period again and was waiting for my body to reset."

Charli adds, "It's given me a complete new understanding for women out there and I love that the conversation about miscarriages is so open at the moment, because it's such an isolating thing for a woman. It made us ready to be parents."

Charli isn't the only Aussie celeb who has spoken out about their miscarriage tragedy. Radio host Em Rusciano is currently pregnant with a baby boy, but opened up about her heartbreak in May last year.

"I'd only just seen my baby the week before on the ultrasound, kicking and waving. I'd heard his heart beat and began to imagine what type of person he'd become. What colour hair he'd have, I wondered if he'd be serious like his dad or ridiculous like his mother, or perhaps a little bit of both," the 2Day FM presenter wrote on Facebook at the time.

"But now, all I have is that one grainy black and white image, and the rest I will have to imagine. I'm not sure I'm built to withstand this kind of heartbreak, I'm not sure any mother is."
