We might be in for one beautiful baby – model Megan Gale and her boyfriend, AFL ruckman Shaun Hampson, are expecting their first child.Gale made the announcement over Instagram, posting an ultrasound of their baby on Nov. 11.”I’m so excited and thrilled to announce my boyfriend Shaun and I are expecting our first child together and I’m 13 weeks pregnant,” she wrote. “we have prayed for this beautiful soul to come along and now that it’s happened we could not be more thankful and we cannot wait to be parents. SO looking forward to meeting you our little angel.”
Her post so far has 20,500 likes, and the next day she posted photos of gorgeous bouquets sent to her by L’Oreal, David Jones and Chic Celebrity Management.”We’re touched by all of the sweet words and well wishes – Thank you so so much… Megan and Shaun xoxox” she wrote on Twitter.At 38, the model and swimwear designer is 13 years older than her boyfriend, who she started dating in 2010 after spitting from comedian Andy Lee. But the age gap has never been a factor: “If someone knows what they want out of life, it doesn’t matter if they’re 23 or 43. If they treat me well and make me laugh, that’s enough,” she said. “Throwing around labels such as ‘toyboy’ or ‘cougar’ is unfair. You’re defining someone without seeing past who they really are.”
“I think women of my generation are having children a lot later,” she told The Australian Women’s Weekly. “It’s definitely riskier and there are issues, but I think women are really wanting to get a lot of life experience under their belt —whether that be travel or work —and are becoming more certain about who they settle down with.”
The couple’s genetically blessed baby is due in May.
