‘Luke and I are absolutely thrilled (and ever so slightly terrified) to announce that we will be welcoming Baby Trickett 4.0 into the world in May!!’ she revealed in the caption.

‘Poppy is not sure she’s ready for another baby, Eddie thinks it will be a little girl and Bronte is excited to be a big sister but really has no idea what’s she’s in for.’

Fellow Olympian and skiier Britteny Cox wrote: ‘Congratulations! This is fabulous news.’

‘Congrats fam!!,’ singer Amy Sheppard added.

Libby, who was once the fastest female swimmers in the world, was forced to give up on her career in the pool at just 28 due to injury.

She wrote about her struggle during her memoir, Beneath The Surface, admitting the future was ‘dark’ at the time, but she has since moved on to become a devoted mother, TV personality and author.

Last year, Libby reflected on her history with postnatal depression following the birth of her daughter Bronte. 

The 34-year-old told The Daily Telegraph that life changes can be ‘quite daunting’. 

‘I think whenever you have such a change in your life, it can be always quite daunting,’ she said.

‘Especially for me, knowing that I’ve had a history of postnatal depression, and it’s certainly something we are acutely aware of.’
