The pregnancy of Seven Year Switch star Cassie was one of the worst kept television secrets of all time. But now in her final trimester, the Queensland mum-of-three says she’s happier than ever.
Sharing a candid black-and-white image to her and husband Brad’s shared Instagram account on Thursday, Cassie wrote, “Relishing in the last moments of being pregnant with our 4th and final little miracle. I usually struggle hard with body image when I am pregnant. As a women [sic] it’s hard to break away from the ideals you have in your mind of what a perfect body should look like! But this time round I feel different.”

Having appeared on the controversial Channel Seven couple-swap show with husband Ryan, it was only on the reunion episode that Cassie admitted to having been pregnant the whole time.
The pair, who has two young girls and a son who was stillborn, are now just weeks away from their third little girl's entry into the world.
"I have learnt to love my body and the beautiful life I am creating inside of me," the post continues. "I am not a weight watcher whilst pregnant (I eat a well balanced diet) nor do I stick to an exercise routing after 20wks because of my own fears that something might go wrong given my history. I have gained in excess of 22kg with each pregnancy and FINALLY I have accepted that that's just me... I have the rest of my life to commit myself to a healthy and fit lifestyle but for these short 9 months it's all about my baby and making sure I get this healthy little human to the other side! Women's bodies are just A.M.A.Z.I.N.G."
