If you follow Chezzi Denyer on Instagram you’d be aware that she’s been battling with hyperemesis gravidarum throughout her third pregnancy – a rare but severe form of morning sickness. But if her latest post is anything to go by, it appears the 40-year-old is finally feeling human again, with her unusual cravings kicking in in full-force.

On Tuesday, Chezzi – who is married to TV legend Grant Denyer – shared a beautiful update of her blossoming baby bump.

“29 weeks!” she captioned the side-on selfie, in which her youngest daughter, Scout, could be seen kissing her bare belly. “Only 77 days to go. Strangely craving baklava?!?!”

In a follow-up post, Chezzi explained that Scout had taken to prodding her stomach to “feel little baby poking her back.”

“Not my favourite game,” she added. “Makes me need to go wee… but it’s cute!”

By the way, this isn’t the first time that Chezzi has opened up about her taste buds changing during pregnancy.

Back in September, she posted a pic of herself holding a bag of sour worms and admitted she’d been struggling to keep anything else down.

“When a bag of sour lollies can make you this excited!” she wrote.

“I heard Chrissy Teigen ate so many sour lollies she burnt her tongue – OUCH. I’m finding sucking on them helps give me a bit of energy and for some reason the sour taste I adore right now!”

Chezzi previously opened up about her taste buds changing during pregnancy.


With her first-born, Sailor, now 8, she “craved (and ate by the truckload) tons of condensed milk with cocoa powder and desiccated coconut.”

And while pregnant with Scout, 4, she “had strong urges to devour” tall glasses of ice chocolate with “towers of cream” – even though she can’t “stand the taste of dairy.”

She continued: “With this bub I’m going to enjoy any cravings. I’ve been feeling so miserable and revolting… totally gagging thinking about food.. that anything that tickles my fancy I.e sour lollies I’m going to enjoy guilt-free!”

Just a few weeks ago, Chezzi got real about how sick she’d been over the past few months.

“Here’s a sexy snapshot of me struggling with my Hyperemesis gravidarum today,” Chezzi captioned a snap on Instagram.

“Here’s a sexy snapshot of me struggling with my Hyperemesis gravidarum today,” she shared, alongside a pic of herself lying on the couch.

“I don’t want pity. I am surviving. I know this path well – It’s my 3rd HG pregnancy. I don’t need help – I’ve got my husband & family looking after me. But I’m posting this to contrast the smiling happy photos I’ve shared recently to encourage those going through it. that it is difficult and awful. And I see you and I hear and feel what you’re going through. Know you’re not alone.”

Many of her 58.7k followers thanked her for her honesty and shared their own experiences with the condition.

“Thank you so much for being so authentic💕” one wrote. “Oh wow you are an actual superwoman xo both mine were HG pregnancies too xo sending you virtual zofran, laxatives and love xoxo,” added another.

The former Family Feud host and his wife announced their pregnancy news back in August with an adorable video on Instagram that featured both Sailor and Scout.

“We have some exciting news….. coming 1 March 2021,” Grant and Chezzi both captioned the video, which shows their two girls sitting at a table with a toy doll.

“So, we have some news. Our mum is pregnant! And mum’s really sick. And she’s been resting for days,” the girls explained.
