She’s 23 weeks pregnant with her first child – and now Hi-5 star Charli Robinson has celebrated her blossoming baby bump with a new photo.
‘It’s official. I can’t fit my clothes anymore.... shopping time!’ the proud mum-to-be shared on her Instagram account on Oct. 1 alongside a snap.
The former children’s entertainer and her racecar driver partner Liam Talbot shared their happy baby news in an exclusive interview with New Idea in August.
And Charli has enthusiastically said she’s ‘loving’ being pregnant.
The couple, who have been dating for two years, are expecting their first child in January.
‘It was surprising and exciting all rolled into one,’ Charli, 37, said of the moment she found out she was expecting.
But while Charli and Liam are counting down the days until their little princess arrives, the pair revealed a secret heartache they’ve been hiding.
Earlier on in their relationship, Charli experienced a missed-miscarriage, also known as a silent miscarriage at five weeks.
‘It was quite a shock to find out we were pregnant and then to find out it wasn’t a viable pregnancy,’ Charli told New Idea.
‘Afterwards was the tough part. I kept thinking I was broken because I hadn’t had my period again and was waiting for my body to reset.’
Charli said going through this experience made her realise just how much she wanted to be a mum.
‘It’s given me a complete new understanding for women out there and I love that the conversation about miscarriages is so open at the moment, because it’s such an isolating thing for a woman. It made us ready to be parents.’
