Congratulations are in order for Matildas midfielder Katrina Gorry and fiancée Clara Markstedt as they have announced the arrival of their second child together.

The lovebirds first announced the exciting news that they were expecting in a joint post on Instagram on November 23, with Katrina and Clara holding ultrasound photos, with their two-year-old daughter Harper happily posing.

“Adding more love to our love story 🤍,” Katrina wrote.

In the collection of photos, Harper sat alongside the family dog wearing clothing which revealed they are set to be a big brother and sister in 2024.

Plus, Harper could be seen kissing Clara’s belly while Katrina held the family pooch – meaning Clara was pregnant with their second.

Katrina’s teammates flooded the comment section with love for the parents.

“So much love for the 3 of you, [Charli Grant] and I are going to be the best aunties,” midfielder Kyra Cooney-Cross commented.

“Omg congrats,” Kyah Simon wrote.

The couple met in May 2022, when Katrina moved to Sweden to play for the Swedish football club Vittsjö GIK. Months before her move, the Aussie footballer gave birth to her daughter Harper via IVF.

“I knew that 2021 was kind of my year. I did want to fall pregnant, with or without a partner, so I decided that I would give IVF a go,” she told ABC in 2021.
