After marrying in 2007, Luke (who is also a former champion swimmer) and Libby welcomed their first baby, daughter Poppy Frances in August 2015. The couple also suffered a miscarriage in 2014, something Libby told Mamamia she is ultimately grateful for.

“I am so grateful that I have Poppy now and for any future babies that we might have all we want is a healthy, happy baby,” she said in April.

“So many women go through it and we feel like it’s our fault and we feel like it’s our bodies failing on some level but in reality, it’s not. That little being just wasn’t meant to be for some reason.”

According to Libby’s post, Poppy seems to think she’s set for a baby brother, but really, any baby is a blessing.

Congratulations, Libby, Luke and Poppy!
