The proud dad—who was known on MKR as the "friendly pirate"— shared another photo grinning from ear to ear as he took their "little egg" home from the hospital.
Ash and Stacey announced they were growing their family in August 2019, sharing a bunch of photos from a professional maternity shoot.
"THIS ONES NOT SPAGHETTI!!!🤰🏼Stacey and I are super excited to announce that we are expecting a lil bub due in March 🍼👶🏼🤙🏽 " Ash wrote, adding the hashtag, "#proudDad".
Stacey also posted a beautiful snap of the Byron Bay-based couple with the caption: "SURPRISE!!!! 🎉 Ash and I are SO excited to finally announce that we’re expecting a little bubba. As of next March we’ll be a family of 3 👱🏽♀️👨🏽🦱👶🏼 ❤️ #piratefam
The hipster couple of over a decade, who tied the knot in August 2019, rose to fame on the hit cooking competition. And although they were frontrunners and by far the most popular contestants on the show, they left halfway through filming after Ash contracted an infection in his remaining eye. He lost an eye in a glassing incident on the Gold Coast many years ago.
“After we filmed the Bondi challenge, I was just wrecked and super run down and my eye socket started swelling up. The doctor was really concerned — he was more concerned because I only have one eye and it was contagious,” the avid surfer said at the time.
“No one wants to go out the way we did and I know how competitive Ash is but, at the end of the day, it was about his health,” Stacey also revealed.
