There must be something in the coconut water as there appears to be a baby boom happening in fashion land.
PS hears there are slew of famous Australian beauties expecting bundles of joy in the new year including Lara Bingle, who will soon launch her sunless tanning range The Base, model Nicole Trunfio and environmental activist and swimwear designer Robyn Lawley.
Sources on the ground at New York Fashion Week, confirmed the three Australian beauties are pregnant, with Trunfio expected to be “five months along” and Bingle and Lawley both in the “early stages”.
While representatives are remaining tip-lipped, a video of Bingle, together with group of Australian models in the Big Apple celebrating the launch of new online fashion magazine, All My Friends Are Models, was posted on Instagram with a small baby bump showing under her loose black gown.
Since topless photos of her frolicking on the beach in Hawaii with her partner Sam Worthington surfaced last month, the 27-year-old model has refrained from posting her usual bikini shots online and is nowadays usually seen posing with her back to the camera.
Both Woman’s Day and Who magazine have reported the pregnancy which was confirmed by friends of the couple.
“The pregnancy was not planned at all, but it’s still a really happy surprise for them both,” Who reported.
“They’re both so excited – Lara’s the happiest she’s ever been.”
Local bookies have been quick to cash in on the news that Michael Clarke’s former flame is set to become a mother to the “bogan from Rockingham” turned Hollywood rising star, Worthington, 38.
“We’re betting on the name of [Prince] William and Kate’s second baby so we thought it was only fitting to do the same for Lara and Sam,” Sportingbet’s Andrew Brown said.
“The name Jake is out top pick if it’s a boy because of what the Avatar character of the same name did for Sam’s Hollywood career.
“We don’t expect to take too many bets for Michael.”
