The beautiful moment Trixie tells Brendan Fevola that Fifi Box is pregnant

No, you're crying!

By Rebel Wylie
He might have been a tough guy on the footy field, but when it comes to babies, Brendan Fevola is a huge softie.
Never more so than when little Beatrix "Trixie" Box told him her mummy, Fifi Box was having a baby.
In a gorgeous video, shared to Fifi's Instagram account, we see the moment little Beatrix told her mum's Fifi, Fev and Byron co-host that there was a baby in her mum's tummy and we've all the feelings about it.

We see "Uncle Fev" in a set-up situation, where he thinks he's about to interview Trixie, but Fifi has other plans.
He begins asking Trixie: "Do you know who I am?" before encouraging her to "say 'a legend'", which the adorable five-year-old refuses to do.
Fifi then prompts Trixie, asking her if she has something she's like to tell Fev. It's then that the corn-rowed little cutie leans in and whispers in Brendan Fevola's ear.
"Mummy's having a baby!"

Completely shocked, Fevs face says it all, and we could not love him more.
"She's having a baby?! Oh my god!" He exclaims.
After checking with Fifi that it was actually true, the overwhelmed dad of four, including newborn, Tobi, jumps up and hugs his co-host, declaring: "That's amazing!"
It's not the first time we've seen the softer side, of the lovable giant, either. The birth, and recent health scare, of his fourth daughter Tobi has shown us just what a sweetheart Fev is.
We're sure he'll have lots of advice for Fifi as her pregnancy advances, he just seems like the kind of guy who'd know what to say, don't you think?
41-year-old, Fifi took to her Instagram earlier in February to share her very special news via an adorable video featuring big-sister to be, Trixie.
Next to the video was a caption explaining that the new addition had been conceived via IVF and an anonymous donor.
"We're having a baby!!" she captioned the post. "Yes Trixie and I are over the moon/jumping out of our skin/can't stop smiling/floating on air/dancing in the streets/walking on sunshine and every other metephor that conveys absolute pure joy 😍 How did this happen you might ask?"
"Well, a few years ago I made an appointment to see an IVF specialist, the amazing Dr Sameer Jatkar at Monash IVF, and I began an IVF journey to extend our little family.
"After a series of egg retrievals and freezing, last year I started the process to become pregnant via an anonymous donor."

Fifi continued: "I am still pinching myself that I have been this blessed and that this little miracle is growing within me, a much wanted and longed for sibling for a very excited big sister!
"I know the value of this miracle because I have seen first hand the heartbreak, tears and sacrifices so many women and couples suffer on their IVF journeys and my heart goes out to those who are facing that pain and struggle.
"It is not lost on me that I am one of the lucky ones. Being a mum is my greatest joy in life, it is quite simply everything to me.
"Trixie has brought me more happiness and love than I ever imagined possible and to feel my heart expanding to include this little angel kicking and rollicking within me, I am overwhelmed with how much love and happiness the future holds. I will cherish Trixie and this little angel forever, and hold them so close for the rest of our lives 💕💕💕 #family"
We're so excited to follow this journey Fifi and Trixie ... and the Fev too, of course.
