Stacey also shared the news with her followers, posting 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
Although they were frontrunners in the popular cooking competition, Stacey and Ash— who lost an eye in a glassing incident on the Gold Coast a decade ago— were forced to leave the show halfway through the competition after he contracted an infection in his remaining eye.
“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.
