Constance Hall, of Queens of Constance, has announced she’s pregnant with her fifth child.
In a typically candid Facebook post, the Perth-based blogger shared the happy news with the 1.1 million people who follow her daily thoughts and musings.
“The commune is welcoming another baby,” she wrote alongside a picture of herself and fiancé Denim Cooke.
“We tried everything, on and off bouts of the pill (until it flared my colitis too much). Withdrawal. Morning after pills. We actually have no idea how this baby slipped through. But it did.”
“I think I’m about 8 weeks, haven’t been to a doctor or anything yet. We are not ready for this and I am petrified, babies terrify me.”
She added: “But are we happy? Pigs in sh*t.”
Constance went on to reveal that she considered having an abortion because her new partner had slept in.
“Well.... I'm hormonal, I considered having an abortion this morning because Densy slept in,” she wrote.
“However, I love this mother f*er, with every inch of my bloated body, we are our kids biggest fans and we don’t see the harm in putting a new little soul right in the middle of it all.”
The news comes just months after Constance announced her split from husband Bill Mahon, the father of her four children.
“We’ve made the decision to go our own ways,” she wrote on Facebook at the time.
“This decision wasn’t made lightly, obviously he has been the love of my life but we just weren’t making each other happy any more and have lived separate lives for so long now that it just seemed to fall that way.”
She added: "I was once warned that if you make yourselves redundant to each other, you won't find a reason to stay together. I guess that kind of happened to Bill and I. We still love each other so much but we stopped enjoying each other and the kids stopped seeing happiness in our love, only contempt. It's the right decision; despite being laced with doubt we have given ourselves so much time to consider all the options and I feel strong."
Of course, two months later Constance became engaged to her now-fiancé.
Congratulations again to the happy couple!
