Australian model Shanina Shake has announced that she is expecting her first child from her boyfriend Matthew Odessa.
“I am very happy to share this with everyone. I think everyone in our close family circle is shocked at how long we have been able to keep it a secret, ”she wrote on Instagram.
Shake and Odessa actually “spent most of the first trimester apart” because they were both busy.
However, Shanina is “very happy” with the way her pregnancy went.
She said E! News: “It was very difficult to remain silent, especially given the circumstances of my work.
“As many mothers and pregnant women know, the first trimester is usually nauseous with morning sickness. This is really a time for relaxation. I was very lucky that the pregnancy went pretty well. I was very pleased.
“In the first three or four months while I was working, it was very hard to feel sick. I was also able to work and have fun, which has been really great so far. ”
In recent months, Shaik has worn many oversized blazers in an effort to hide her pregnancy.
But from now on the catwalk star can’t wait to show off his baby bump.
She explained, “I’m very excited to show off my bump, so I really understand why Rihanna and Shay Mitchell are showing off the bump. I want to show it because it’s an exciting time. The female body is just amazing with the ability to develop life.
“At that moment, I was very closed about my pregnancy. I’ve worn a lot of great blazers and I can’t wait to get out of them, show off my bump and feel more relaxed. I want to be comfortable but stylish. ”
