Turia Pitt may be many things – author, motivational speaker, philanthropist, elite athlete.

But it’s the beloved Aussie’s role as a mother to her two boys that brings her the most joy.

In February this year, the 33-year-old welcomed her second son, Rahiti, with fiance Michael Hoskin, and she’s been sure to keep fans updated as she navigates her way through the newborn bubble with a toddler in tow.

Rahiti, which means sunrise, already has a proud big brother in two-year-old Hakavai, with Turia regularly sharing heart-warming snaps on Instagram of the brothers bonding.

Opening up about her perfect bundle, Turia says she couldn’t be more grateful to have two healthy sons – but that’s not to say it hasn’t come without its challenges.

“I’m overjoyed, delirious, sleep deprived and extremely emotional,” Turia confessed on Instagram shortly after her second child’s arrival.

“Sometimes my mind will race ahead of me – I need to get the washing in, send that email, get Hakavai’s stuff ready for pre-school. I worry about how I’ll sleep tonight, and what tomorrow will be like if I don’t get enough (who am I kidding? Of course I won’t get enough). It’s exhausting,” she said.

“So, what do I do about it? I remind myself to stay in the moment. In THIS moment. I try not to get too caught up in the future, and all the things that need doing, and focus on what is happening right here and right now.”

Turia gave birth to her second son at the start of February.

With her incredibly refreshing outlook on motherhood and upbeat attitude towards life, it’s easy to forget the hardships Turia has been through.

Despite her horrific brush with death back in 2011, which saw her suffer burns to 65 per cent of her body, lose several fingers and spend a gruelling five months in hospital after she was trapped in a grassfire during a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberleys, Turia has one of the most optimistic attitudes you’ll ever come across.

Not only is she an incredible role model for the next generation of children around the world, we have no doubt she’ll be raising two incredible boys.

Dad’s mini-me!

“These guys are literal twins. I mean, well, I guess not ‘literal’ twins because they are father and son, but you get my point, they look alike. I guess because they’re related. Father and son, like I mentioned. But very similar! Like twins,” Turia quipped next to this adorable shot of Rahiti and Michael.

“Me and Michael. Oh, wait, that’s Rahiti 👯,” the author joked of her bub and his uncanny resemblance to his dad.

“I took 46 photos that look exactly like this. I’m not saying I’m Anne Geddes, but I’m not NOT saying it either.” We think you nailed it, Turia.
