Former Married At First Sight star Tracey Jewel has announced that she’s pregnant and expecting her second child.
On Saturday, the 37-year-old reality star shared on Instagram a picture of herself with boyfriend Nathan Constable to make the announcement.
Tracey also shared a sweet sonogram image, saying she’s ‘so happy’ to share the news.
‘We’re having a baby! We are so happy to share our beautiful news with everyone,’ she captioned the post. ‘I have always believed in second chances and my second baby I’ve been waiting so long for,’ she added. ‘My daughter Grace is going to be an amazing big sister and I’m so so grateful to be experiencing pregnancy and motherhood again with my love Nate x.’
She also posted a picture of her ultrasound and a baby onesie that read: ‘Coming soon.’
The baby is Tracey and Nathan’s first child together. She shares her daughter Grace, nine, with her ex-husband, Jacob Anthonisz.
While the pregnancy may come as a surprise for some, Tracey revealed she wanted to have a child with Nathan in January last year.
‘I definitely want more children, a hundred per cent! I’m only 36, I’ve got quite a few years left,’ she told WHO magazine. ‘I decided that going forward I definitely want kids so I need to be with someone where that’s an option. That door is open and that’s really important to me.’
However, Tracey confessed she wasn’t planning on getting married anytime soon.
She explained that after two failed ‘marriages’ – including her non-legally binding nuptials to Dean Wells on MAFS – she was reluctant to tie the knot again.
‘I would much prefer to build a strong foundation in a partnership and have a family over marriage,’ she said. ‘Marriage, for me, doesn’t make a partnership anymore. So ever since MAFS my value system around that has completely changed.’
Tracey previously dated Nathan in high school before rekindling their romance at the start of last year.
