Morgan and Ryan, who tied the knot in a beach-side ceremony in Noosa in 2016, are already the proud parents to a two-year-old son called Flynn and Lisa has played a pivotal and hands-on role in his upbringing.

“Flynn is just the most adorable child, he’s just amazing,” Lisa told Now To Love of her oldest grandson last year.

“The best thing about being a grandparent is you’re able to have so much fun with them and then give them back! We all spoil him,” she explained.

The safe arrival of Taj signals some much needed joy for the grieving family as they come to terms with the untimely passing of Lisa and ex-husband Grant Kenny‘s oldest daughter Jaimi Kenny, who passed away on September 14 following a private battle with a long-term illness.

Paying tribute to her older sister, Morgan praised Jaimi for being an incredible aunt to her son Flynn.

“I am so grateful for the time that I had you as my big sister. I am grateful that Flynn got two and a half years with his Aunty,” she wrote shorty after her sister’s tragic death.

Former professional dancer Morgan, who works as a pilates instructor on the Sunshine Coast, announced her second pregnancy back in May.

“This Mother’s Day is a little different. I feel so lucky to be Flynn’s mumma but also so lucky to be the mumma of our newest addition, due later this year ❤️ I am so full of love today. Happy Mother’s Day to all the mums out there 💐🌻🌹,” the 30-year-old penned next to a bikini-clad snap of her growing baby bump as she stood alongside Flynn at the beach.
