It’s been a huge year for Aussie fitness star Kayla Itsines – getting engaged to her long-time partner Tobi Pearce and reaching 10 million followers on Instagram.

And now the pair have even more exciting news.

The Sweat trainer and CEO have announced they are expecting their first baby together in May next year.

“I’ve wanted kids ever since I met Tobi and it’s something we have always talked about,” Kayla said in a statement.

“It turns out that when we were ready it was just perfect timing. I think he will make the most perfect father, I’ve never seen him so excited about anything.

“He has already planned the funniest fluffy outfits for our winter baby and he talks to my tummy every morning and night.”

Kayla shared a heartwarming video to her followers showing off her baby bump.

“To be able to start my own family with the person I love the most in this world is an absolute dream come true,” she captioned the video.

The video has already been viewed over 1.7million times and well wishes from her fans around the world were flowing in fast.

Congratulations!!! Amazing news! Welcome to the BBG mums club,” one person commented.

“Wish you all the luck and love in the world! Family is the most important thing,” another wrote.

Back in April this year the 26-year-old Bikini Body Guide founder announced Tobi had popped the question.

“We have lived together for over 4 years, we have 2 beautiful dogs, an amazing business….and to top it off… Tobi got down on one knee last week and asked me to marry him…. in front of my family,” Kayla wrote on her social media account.

“I obviously said YES to spending the rest of my life with my very best friend.”

Tobi is the founder and CEO of ‘The world’s biggest female fitness community’ Sweat, and also lists himself as the co-creator of the Bikini Body Guide programs.

According to the Young Rich list in 2017, Kayla and Tobi are worth a combined fortune of $64 million.

Throughout her pregnancy and beyond, Kayla will continue to be a Sweat trainer and develop content.

Kayla also says her BBG community will always remain one of her key focuses.

“I’m so blessed to have such a strong BBG community, including many BBG mums throughout the world. I’m so excited to relate to my BBG mums even more through my pregnancy journey,” Kayla said.
