She posted a photo showing off her growing baby bump in a black crop top as she carried the couple’s son Ernest.

‘Grateful to raise our babies & excited to make memories here. Another bubba Loch joining the party in 2024,’ she wrote.

Frances and Sam, 40, welcomed their son Ernest into the world in 2021.

The couple tied the knot in a surprise wedding ceremony on Valentine’s Day 2018 just three months after she met the bodybuilder in November 2017 – and got engaged two weeks later.

‘Two weeks was all it took to know that forever with you was a mighty fine idea,’ she wrote in an Instagram post at the time of their shock engagement.

Frances said the proposal happened in the kitchen when Sam, a former Olympic rower, popped the question as she was putting peas in the freezer.

During the proposal, Sam had a bottle of champagne in his hands and cleverly convinced her to ask him why.

When she obliged, he replied that he brought it to drink after he asked her to marry him.

That was two weeks after they first met, and the couple waited another two weeks before telling the world about their whirlwind romance.

Former PM Tony Abbott also congratulated the couple at the time, tweeting: ‘Really thrilled at the news of Francie and Sam’s engagement. We are very proud of her and the Abbotts are looking forward to welcoming Sam into the family.’

Despite concerns the couple were moving too fast, Frances previously revealed her family, including her dad, were very supportive of their engagement.

The pair were legally married at a registry in February 2018 – but waited to celebrate with their nearest and dearest at Sydney’s exclusive Palm Beach in April.
