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.
It's been a harrowing few weeks for the family as they come to terms with the untimely passing of Lisa Curry and Grant Kenny's oldest daughter Jaimi Kenny 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.

"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.
During her pregnancy, the former Moulin Rouge dancer has kept fit and active by teaching her regular barre and Pilates classes while also attending weekly dance classes. And in a truly special touch, Morgan revealed her second child's due date was actually on her birthday - November 9th.
"This baby is actually due on my birthday but if it's anything like Flynn, I'll be ready to meet it a few weeks early," she mused at the half-way mark of her pregnancy.
