Very happy news for Kym Valentine as the actress confirms she’s expecting a baby with her fiancé, football player Trent Croad.
The 38 year old got engaged in March last year, and now the couple have revealed they’re expecting a baby together. Kym made the announcement in magazine Woman’s Day but was quick to show off her gorgeous baby bump on Instagram.
Kym says they feel ‘blessed beyond belief’ and the couple decided to take a romantic babymoon on a secret tropical holiday in Hayman Island. She told Woman’s Day: ‘To be here with each other at this point in our lives is everything that happiness looks and feels like to us’.
The Australian actress, who played Libby Kennedy on Neighbours, is already mum to 11-year-old daughter Millana, whom she had with her ex-husband Fabio Tolli. Their baby will also have siblings from his dad’s side – Kiera, eight, and Sierra, six, from Trent’s previous marriage to Tanya Stewart.
The couple first shared their engagement news at the premiere of Dirty Dancing: The Classic Story On Stage earlier this year after the 35 year old proposed just days before the event. Showing off her beautiful diamond ring, the actress also revealed a new tattoo of XXIV on her wedding ringer, which is Trent’s jersey number.
It’s great news that life is finally looking up again for the former Neighbours star after she had a few worrying health scares in recent years. In 2008, during a flight from New York to Melbourne, the actress collapsed because she was suffering from a collapsed lung and pneumonia.
She was faced with another health scare two years later, when she suffered from a life-threatening blood clot on her lung. Kym was later admitted to a private hospital in Melbourne, where she allegedly had to undergo treatment for ’emotional and physical’ issues in relation to her health problems.
