Mick and Breeana got engaged in February after the surfing legend popped the question at Dreamtime Beach, near Fingal Head, NSW.
At the time, a pregnant Breeana said that Mick would make an ‘amazing father’.
‘I’m so excited for this beautiful and rad journey together as a family, and to see you flourish as a daddy. You melt my heart everyday with your outpouring of love and affection,’ she wrote on Instagram.
The American model added that even their dog, Harper, was being ‘super protective and loving’, before speaking about the surprise engagement.

‘And what I thought would be a bubby announcement photo shoot turned into something else so very special. I’m still speechless and soaking in this moment,’ Breeana wrote.
‘You’ve had me smiling bigger than I ever have before since we’ve met, and that smile continues to grow on the daily.
‘Thank you for supporting my happiness and choosing me to ride this wild thing called life with you by each other’s side. I’m so stoked on you.
‘You’re my partner, my lover, my supporter, my encourager. My everything. My forever. Life is pure magic.’
The loved-up couple went public with their relationship in late November 2017, about two years after Mick split from his first wife, Karissa Dalton.
