A Sydney couple who heartbreaking lost three children in a tragic crash in 2020 are preparing to welcome another baby.
Leila and Danny Abdallah shared the beautiful news on Ben Fordham Live!, with Danny revealing the family is doing ‘as good as can be’.
“Leila’s well, she’s pregnant again. I got one past the goalkeeper! And yeah, she’s been pretty busy with the kids,” Danny said.
Three of the couple’s children, Sienna, 8, Angelina, 12, and Antony, 13, were killed in a horror crash alongside cousin Veronique Sakr, 11, when they were hit by a ute while walking on the footpath to get ice-cream at Oatlands on February 1, 2020.
In March 2022, the couple welcomed a baby daughter, which they named Selina in honour of her siblings.
Leila and Danny Abdallah shared a touching photo on Instagram at the time, writing, ‘The Abdallah family are proud to announce the birth of our 7th child into our family. Baby Abdallah Born 18th March 2022 at 7:40am, her weight is 3.3 kg and her height is 51cm. Our little girl is in good health.

They also shared a video of their children Liana, Alex and Michael meeting their little sister, and revealing they wanted to name her in honour of her sisters.
“She’s beautiful, so tiny, can we please call her Selina, it’s a mix of Sienna and Angelina? I love her so much,” said Liana.
