‘We’re having another baby!’ Brendan Fevola and ex-wife Alex announced they are expecting a fourth child on Fox FM’s Fifi, Fev & Byron on Tuesday morning

‘It all happened when we went to America over Easter,’ the retired footy star, 37, said. ‘Alex was really sick, she thought she was jet lagged. I didn’t think anything of it.’

Brendan joked that he ‘didn’t think it worked anymore’ and was taken by surprise when his beautician fiancée showed him a positive pregnancy test.

‘We got back… and I was sitting on the couch watching the basketball. Alex came in and sat down and she had that look that I’d done something wrong,’ he explained.

‘Then she showed me the stick and said, “We’re having a baby!”‘

When the pink confetti exploded, Brendan and Alex cheered ‘It’s a girl!’ alongside their three children – 18-year-old Mia, Leni, 12, and Lulu, eight.

Tuesday’s baby announcement marks a new, happy chapter in Brendan and Alex’s often tumultuous relationship.

They married in 2005, but later found themselves at the centre of a scandal when the former Carlton player was accused of having an affair with Lara Bingle.

Brendan, who has spoken candidly about his past issues with gambling and alcohol, divorced Alex in 2014. 

They got engaged for a second time two years later, around the time he appeared on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!
