Taking to Instagram, the netballer— who represented the Australian Diamonds and currently plays for Collingwood Magpies—told her followers she was going to be a first time mum on Sunday afternoon. Nat shared three photos showing the elated sporting couple holding up a positive pregnancy test during a walk by the beach.
"Samuel and I couldn’t be more excited."
“Someone’s pretty pumped with himself for getting me knocked up,” she joked.
“Samuel and I couldn’t be more excited to announce that we are expecting a little Baby Buthurst in July.
“Can’t wait for the adventure ahead with this amazing guy.”
They're over the moon to be expanding their brood.
As expected, dozens of professional athletes who represent our country were quick to congratulate the former West Coast Eagle's player and his beautiful partner.
"Congrats 😂🙌🏼," AFL player Elliot Yeo wrote, while Freemantle Football Club star Kiara Bowers added: "Omg omg omg YESSS congrats you two xxx soooo happy for you both !!!"
Shae Brown, Nat's former teammate and the wife of ex-Eagle's player Mitch Brown, also said she can't wait to meet their little bundle of joy in July.
Nat is the third Collingwood Magpies star to announce a pregnancy in less than a year!
