Cam and Jules announced they were expecting their first child together back in April, with a stunning cover story for Stellar magazine.

The vintage-inspired shoot included a very cute announcement via their cover line, reading: “First comes marriage, then comes love, then comes a MAFS baby in the baby carriage.”

Jules shared the image on Instagram with her own caption re-confirming the news.

“We are having a baby!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️,” Jules wrote, adding, “You heard it here so you know it’s actually true!”

She continued: “And we couldn’t be happier! I’m already so in love with my bump!”

In her accompanying interview with Stellar Jules, 37, confessed she was surprised at how quickly she fell pregnant.

“I honestly thought it was going to come with a fight. Because of my age, I had done all the hormone testing, the egg count… so much is instilled that you’re going to struggle because of your age,” she said.

Cam admitted he was overjoyed by the news.

“I cried, for sure. I was emotional. It’s a big step and I’ve never done this before,” he said.

Jules has been sharing every step of her pregnancy journey.


Opening up about her pregnancy, July told the Daily Telegraph it had been a whirlwind experience of conflicting emotions.

“You are so eternally grateful to be making life but on the other hand it’s a whirlwind of so many emotions, sickness, tiredness and first time experiences,” the hairdresser explained.

“Not to mention the raging hormones that leave you questioning your sanity. But I can say even now I would do it all again.”

The wedding was the event of the year.
