Such a cool gender reveal – we love it!

However, Ryan shared a different version of the video – a parody with him showing off a ‘baby bump’. He also reveals in the caption that the baby is due in September.
Ryan is a former Married At Fist Sight contestant, and the couple actually met on the set of a different reality TV show, The Challenge.
Olympic medalist Emily and Ryan announced their engagement in March, after publicly revealing their relationship in December last year.
Emily hasn’t competed in swimming since the 2020 Olympics, but she had hinted at the possibility of competing at the Paris 2024 Olympics. But that now seems unlikely, with the Australian trials flagged for June next year.We may get commissions for purchases made using links in this post. Learn more.
