Farmer Wants A Wife's Clare reveals what she misses most during pregnancy

EXCLUSIVE: Clare Hockings shares an update on her pregnancy with Farmer Brad.

Farmer Wants A Wife fans were delighted when season 13 couple Clare Hockings and Farmer Brad Jones announced in June, just one month after their reunion episode aired on TV, that they are expecting their first child together.

The parents-to-be have since shared a handful of updates on social media, with the 33-year-old cattle farmer posting a photo of Clare on Instagram this week cradling her growing bump while dressed in full farm attire.

The 27-year-old preschool teacher wore a blue work shirt, black pants, a neck scarf, farm boots and an Akubra as she posed in front of the rolling hills of Cootamundra, NSW.


Following the social media post, Clare spoke with Yahoo Lifestyle about her pregnancy and revealed the one thing she’s missing the most.

“I've been feeling good, I'm missing riding the horses a lot but otherwise I'm well,” she shared.

“I'm lucky that Brad's been so supportive and we're excited to meet our little one soon.”

'So excited'

Clare and Brad’s baby, who they described as their “newest little farm hand” in their online pregnancy announcement, is due in December.

The couple told New Idea in July that they have decided to wait to find out the baby’s gender “the old-fashioned way” and are yet to settle on a name.

Clare also shared that the baby will be the first grandchild in her family and her parents are “so excited”.

“Brad’s parents just welcomed a new granddaughter the other day, so it’ll be nice for our baby to have a little cousin close in age,” she added.


In the 16 years since Farmer Wants A Wife first premiered on Australian TV, the show has produced nine marriages and 25 babies - with Brad and Clare’s child soon to be added to that list.
