And Newcastle-born surfer Luke is over-the-moon to be welcoming a baby boy to join the brood.
‘I was startled to find out we were having a boy. I didn’t think it was possible,’ he added.

However joyous the occasion, Jess admits that her second pregnancy hasn’t ran too smoothly so far.
She explained that she suffers from vertigo as a side effect of pregnancy, and sometimes even loses her vision and feeling down the side of her body.
She describes the experience as feeling like she’s ‘inside a washing machine’ – but is adamant she won’t take any medication while she’s pregnant.
