Responsible parents in the making! Doing the @tinyheartsfirstaid course is one of the best things we’ve done in preparation for the arrival of bub. We learned so much, it was easy to understand and extremely practical. I’m hoping I’ll never have to use it but if I do, I feel I could actually save my child’s or someone else’s life. So worthwhile- I’d say do it! #firstaid

“But Trent’s made up his mind it’s a girl.”
She said he was “really excited,” and touched her belly every day to have chat to their unborn baby.

“We are really, really over the moon, it was a lovely surprise and we are absolutely delighted and thrilled.”
Maddern has spoken about how severe her morning sickness was in the early weeks of her pregnancy.
“That’s tough because you can’t tell workmates why you’re not 100 percent — but that has pretty much passed now, so it’s nice to start to enjoy the feeling of being pregnant.”
