Liz Ellis shared some stellar news on The Project.

It’s been a long, hard road for Liz Ellis and her partner in recent years.

But tonight, former netball star, coach and media personality Liz Ellis announced live on The Project that she is expecting her second child after four gruelling years of IVF and three miscarriages.

“It’s been four long years, I’ve had five rounds of IVF and three miscarriages, but finally, I am pregnant,” Ellis happily announced.

“We’ve got a beautiful little girl, Evelyn, who turned four a couple of weeks ago.”

The 42-year-old said after having her daughter in 2011 naturally, she was expecting no fertility issues.

“I thought, ‘Oh, all you have to do is have sex and you’re done again’,” she said.

“You learn a lot about yourself and your partner through this process. And it’s been a really long time coming and it’s really exciting.”

Ellis said her happy news means that all three stars of stage show The Centurions – herself and former netballers Sharelle McMahon and Catherine Cox – were “all knocked up”, something she described as “probably a world-first in theatre”.

And she said she couldn’t guarantee it, but there is a chance McMahon, who is 37 weeks pregnant, might go into labour on the night.

Congratulations, Liz.
