Daniel Morcombe's twin brother and his wife Anna are having a baby.

Every Australian who has ever followed the Morcombe family’s case will have a grin from ear to ear today.

The North Queensland locals have endured mass heartache and tragedy ever since their son Daniel disappeared from a bus stop 12 year ago. Now the Morcombe family can revel in some good news.

Daniel's twin brother Bradley Morcombe and his wife Anna are expecting their first child together.

The news was broken by the Australian Women's Weekly this morning, along with a brief but powerful interview they had with the overjoyed couple.

“We are both ecstatic about the prospect of becoming parents,” says Brad. “It’s something we have dreamed about for a long time. But for me, there’s not a single day that I don’t think about Daniel. I know that Daniel is still with me, in my heart and in my thoughts. And he always will be,” the father-to-be said.

Brad and Anna met in high school (could this story get any sweeter?) and wed last year on QLD's Sunshine Coast. Anna was there in 2012 when the Morcombe's finally lay Daniel to rest.

Anna doesn't know the gender of their baby yet, but she really thinks it might be a boy.

“I couldn’t think of anything more fitting after everything that everybody has been through,” she said.

Congratulations to the beautiful family.
