It will be all onesies, teethers, bottles and nappies for triple Olympian and I’m A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! star Lisa Curry who took to Instagram this morning to share some very exciting news.
The 55-year-old, who celebrated her engagement to her Elvis-impersonator beau last year, wanted to be the first to give her friends, family and fans a joyous update. Posing for a picture with her daughter, Morgan, 26, the proud mother-of-three rested one hand on her daughter’s tummy, as the pair beamed at the camera.
"I'm going to be a GRANMA [sic]!" Lisa captioned the Instagram snap.
She added to her more than 22,000 followers, "It is with so much joy and excitement to announce that our beautiful daughter Morgan and hubby Ryan are having a baby! This kid is going to be spoilt rotten. Hooray!"
The entire family are clearly overjoyed to welcome the first grandchild to the family. Lisa’s finance Mark cheekily commented on the beautiful mother-daughter photo saying: "Very exciting! I’m marrying a granny!"
Morgan is Lisa’s second child to ex-husband ironman, Grant Kenny. Lisa and Grant, who were married for 23 years before separating in 2009, are also parents to daughter, Jaimi and son, Jett. Morgan married her high school sweetheart, Ryan Gruell, in May last year at a beach-side wedding in Noosa, Queensland.
Lisa’s own wedding to fiancé Mark Tabone, has been kept fairly under wraps with the couple playing coy about the special day.
Speaking to Chanel Seven’s The Morning Show, the couple cleared up rumours that they were already married after having a secret ceremony while on holiday in Fiji earlier in the year.
The happy couple denied that a wedding had already taken place, but Lisa’s future-hubby Mark did let one little detail slip. He announced they would get married "later on in the year maybe."
The Olympian shook her head and whispered, "no." While Mark, was left to awkwardly backtrack. "Oh, sorry, I forgot, we’re on national TV!"
