Luke Shuey will become a father a second time around announcing his wife Danielle is pregnant.
The West Coast captain shared the news on Hit 9.29 this morning, revealing Danielle was 24 weeks along, and joked that there wasn’t a lot to do during the COVID-19 restrictions.
“We found out at about six or seven weeks, so we she was nearly halfway through by the time we went back to the hub. If you look back at the timing, iso got a bit boring at the start,” Luke said.
“All very exciting.”
Luke said mum was doing well, and enjoying spending time with their first son Oliver because he’s a bit of a “mummy’s boy”.
“She’s doing prac with uni, she’s out all day every day at the moment, getting someone quality time with the little one,” Luke said.
It appeared Danielle dropped a very telling clue to Instagram yesterday as part of the viral hashtag challenge #womensupportingwomen.
Decked out in her dressing gown, an Eagles beanie and watering the garden, the usually glamorous WAG poked fun at herself with a relatable snap, with a peek of an obvious rounded belly.
“No sexy selfie here but simply a real life shot to shout out to all of you amazing multi-taskin’ women of the world. You too can look sexy watering your garden in your fave dressing gown and beanie. @themadshueys loves it.”
Luke responded to the black and white picture with the comment: “Sexy”.
The couple married in December last year. It’s been a year of special celebrations for the family, having also celebrated their respective 30th birthdays over the past couple of months.
There seems to be a COVID-19 induced baby boom happening at the West Coast Eagles.
Not the only pair to try and keep the happy news under wraps, earlier this week Jamie Cripps fiancee Liv Stanley alluded to a possible pregnancy posting a picture on social media with an obvious rounded bump.
At last year’s John Worsfold Medal ceremony, the women of the club outshone their husbands and partners with an all-out baby boom, with Jack Redden’s wife Aymee, Jeremy McGovern’s Madison Williams embracing their growing tummies.
