Last night one of Australia’s swimming golden girls revealed via Instagram that her little bundle of joy had arrived and that everyone was happy and well!

Libby Trickett and hubby Luke welcomed a baby girl on August 31st at 9.23pm and they’ve chosen the most gorgeous little name – Poppy Frances Trickett. Welcome to the world beautiful little girl!

Luke and I are so thrilled to announce that our little girl, Poppy Frances Trickett arrived into the world (a couple of weeks early!) on the 31st of August at 9.23pm! She weighed 2.98kg and was 51cm long. We can’t believe how lucky and blessed we are to have this gorgeous little being in our lives! We are so in love and beyond happy!

The swimming legend’s joy comes after much heartbreak from suffering a miscarriage a few months before falling pregnant with Poppy. Libby said to The Sunday Telegraph at the time “Luke dealt with it in a far more logical and reasonable way but it really knocked me around. I was only eight weeks pregnant but you don’t realise how attached you become to the prospect of motherhood in that time.”

The happy new parents met through their passion for swimming and married at Taronga Zoo back in 2007.

We wish this golden little family all the very best and can’t wait to see more of baby Poppy!

Here are some gorgeous snaps Libby Trickett has shared on Instagram of her babymoon:
