Now, seven years later, Turia is the proud mother of baby Hakavai, who she welcomed with long-term partner Michael Hoskin last year. 

Speaking to Daily Mail Australia in October, she revealed she was determined to raise her son with the same relaxed, laid-back lifestyle she had growing up on the NSW South Coast.

‘[I] can’t wait to do all the stuff I enjoy with him – going for a surf or a run – it’s going to be so cool,’ she said.

Turia added: ‘We [Michael and I] both love being outside and keeping active. We’ll be down at the beach with him all the time.’

She also spoke fondly of Michael, who has been a devoted partner throughout her pregnancy and painful rehabilitation after suffering burns.

‘Nothing has been difficult. He’s been awesome as usual – really supportive and he’s frothing. He can’t wait,’ Turia gushed at the time.
