Back in November, Sabrina and Lili held a combined engagement, hens party and baby announcement.

Pregnant Lili was already showing as she posed for a series of glamorous photos with her doting wife. 

Photos taken outside showed Sabrina and school teacher Lili holding hands as they walked through what appeared to have been a park. 

Standing under a rotunda, Sabrina leaned in close to Lili, resting her forehead against the side of her head.

Another photo showed Sabrina leaning forward to plant a sweet kiss on Lili’s belly.  

Sabrina publicly announced the couple is expecting their first child in a post on Instagram earlier this month.

‘I am so excited to announce Lil and I will be welcoming our first little bundle of joy to our family late July (or when she is ready),’ she wrote.

The SAS Australia star then added: ‘The Frederick family is growing and we couldn’t be more grateful. Can’t wait to hold our tiny dancer in our arms.’
