Football great Barry Hall and former Hi-5 member Lauren Brant have announced that they’re expecting a baby together, announcing they are 18 weeks into their first pregnancy.
Sharing the news with New Idea on Monday, the couple first met in 2015 while taking part in Channel 10’s reality show, I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here but didn’t make things official until six months ago.
“We fell madly in love and it happened really quite quickly,” Brant says.
Now, the 39-year-old former Sydney Swans player and 27-year-old entertainer are now preparing for their baby’s arrival, with Brant moving to Hall’s hometown of Melbourne.
“I honestly believe that it’s destiny,” Brant says, adding, “He’s so beautiful, he’s like my protector… I feel he’s going to be the best dad.”
The couple also says that this is just the beginning, explaining they have big plans for their future family.
