BBG Founder Kayla Itsines Is 20 Weeks Pregnant, Expecting First Child With Fiance Tobi Pearce

Fitness queen Kayla Itsines is going to have a little workout buddy. The Bikini Body Guide founder announced on Wednesday, December 19, that she is 20 weeks pregnant and expecting her first child in May.

In an Instagram video set to Lukas Graham’s song “Love Someone,” Itsines, 27, and her fiancé, Tobi Pearce, beam with pride as they stare at their unborn baby during an ultrasound. 

“Tobi and I do not even have words to describe how happy and excited we are to bring this news!” the Australian trainer gushed in her lengthy caption. Itsines praised Pearce, 26, for being the perfect partner. “He comes home every day, hugs and kisses my stomach,” she wrote. “He lays on my legs and asks the baby how its day was. He is at every scan and every appointment. I couldn’t ask for a better partner.”

It should come as no surprise that Itsines hasn’t been lazing around on the couch. The social media influencer will be posting a new workout video on Friday. “I’ve been active my whole pregnancy and I DO have a bump so just be prepared for that,” she told her more than 10 million Instagram followers on Thursday. “It’s going to be so different for you ladies to see a different body than you have been used to seeing since 2013… but I’m so excited to share this with you.”

Itsines struggled with morning sickness until she was about 16 weeks along. During that period she couldn’t stomach the site of her favorite things including Asian greens and grilled fish. “I ate a lot of drier foods like toast and dry biscuits because I was feeling unwell,” she told E! News on Wednesday. “Now I’m mostly back to my Mediterranean diet.”

The future parents, who got engaged in April, will soon learn the sex of their baby. She thinks it’s a boy, he thinks it’s a girl. 

“We don’t know what it is yet, but Tobi’s names are all very boss names,” she told E! “And mine are very pretty names.”
