Grant Hackett is expected to welcome his second child with wife Sharlene in August.
And on Sunday, the swimming legend, 42, gave fans a pregnancy update by sharing photos of Sharlene’s baby bump on Instagram.
The gold medalist posted family photos of the couple with their son Edward, three, and Grant’s twin son Jagger Emilio from his first marriage to singer Candice Alley.

She was all smiles as she hugged Edward and Jagger as they posed on the lawn.
In another photo, Grant wrapped his arms around his wife as she cradled her bump and smiled for the camera.
The couple announced they were expecting their second child together in January.
‘Baby girl arriving in August. I look forward to meeting you. We are so excited,’ Grant and Sharlene said in a joint post.
The gold medalist and his family live in the posh Melbourne suburb of Brighton after moving from his native Gold Coast last year.
In a series of images posted to Instagram, Sharlene looked simply beaming as she showed off her growing bump in a long pink dress and leather jacket.
Grant and Sharlene surprised fans when they announced they tied the knot in a secret and intimate ceremony in Melbourne in December 2020.
In a gushing tribute to his wife, Grant said he couldn’t wait to be married any longer – even though the pandemic ensured the wedding was smaller than the couple had hoped.
He wrote at length: ‘I feel so lucky to call you my beautiful wife @sharhackett. With a year that has been filled with so much uncertainty, this has been such a perfect way to end 2020.
“With COVID-19 continuing to delay our nuptials and the ability to properly plan our wedding, with all of our friends and family in one place, both locally and overseas, Sharlene and I just wanted to say ‘yes’ !”
