Barnaby Joyce and Vikki Campion have confirmed they are expecting their second child.
The disgraced Former Deputy Prime Minister reportedly broke the news to close family and friends, who say baby number two is set to arrive in June.
The Courier Mail reported that the family was told of the news after Campion was spotted with Joyce down the coast last week with a round belly on show.
“Another boy is due in June this year,” a friend told the publication. “The name is already picked out — Thomas, after Barney’s grandfather."
But not everyone is excited about the pregnancy news, with the friend revealing it had left Joyce's daughters from his first marriage "furious".
But the couple have been showing a strong front.
“[Vikki’s] back working full time and spends every waking hour being the best mum she can for the girls,’’ the friend told the Courier Mail. “It has been a humiliating journey for the five of them but she’s incredibly resilient.”
The friend also reportedly revealed that Joyce could be trying to make a return to parliament.
Vikki wants Barney back in the top job. She’s made no secret she also wants to be back working with Barney, which is likely why in December … he went public, again calling for the partner and spouse ban to be lifted."
