Channel Nine star Scherri-Lee Biggs, 33, and her AFL player husband Daniel Venables, 24, are expecting a baby
Scherri-Lee Biggs and Daniel Venables will welcome their first child together in February next year.
The Today star, 33, and AFL player, 24, shared their happy news to Instagram on Friday alongside a heartwarming picture of brown baby socks.
Sitting next to the tiny clothing articles was a grey stuffed bunny as well as a trendy plaque with their baby’s anticipated birth month.
‘There’s going to be lots of little socks around come Feb!’ Scherri-Lee wrote in the caption of their dual post.
Scherri-Lee addressed the age difference between herself and her younger husband, telling Nine Honey that it was never an issue for them.
‘There’s a tiny little age gap between Dan and I, so when we first got together, Dan was very sweet and he wanted to make sure I knew that he was definitely keen to have kids and that wasn’t ever going to be a barrier for us,’ she explained.
‘It was actually a conversation we had quite early on. And now, it’s all happening!’
The couple’s famous friends flocked to the comments to congratulate the pair on their huge news.
‘So excited for you! Congratulations!’ the Block judge Shaynna Blaze wrote.
Channel Nine star Tracy Vo added: ‘This is just the most beautiful news. Big love to you guys.’
Their big announcement comes just a few months after Scherri-Lee and Daniel tied the knot in a stylish outdoor ceremony in her home city of Perth.
The couple, who have been dating since 2021, tied the knot at the picturesque Old Young’s gin distillery in the outer rural suburb of Henley Brook in March.
Scherri-Lee looked breathtaking on her special day in a white lace dress with intricate patterns on the skirt and bodice, as well as a long tulle veil.
Meanwhile, Daniel wore a white tuxedo jacket as he dipped his wife for their first kiss as newlyweds in front of their family and friends.
A day earlier, the pair had thrown a party at a waterside restaurant for their nearest and dearest.
Scherri-Lee shared a photo from their nuptials on Instagram, and confirmed in the caption she had taken her husband’s surname by writing ‘The Venables’.
She also posted a series of photos from the reception as the couple partied the night away with their guests, including Nine News Perth newsreader Tracy Vo.
Daniel, a former midfielder for the West Coast Eagles, surprised Scherri-Lee with a proposal by the beach just before Christmas last year.
The 9News Perth weather presenter – known to east coast viewers as a fill-in host on the Today show – went public with Daniel just seven months earlier, in May 2022.
While it’s unclear how long they have been dating, the pair were first pictured together in Vaucluse, Sydney, in early January that year, which suggests they started seeing each other some time in 2021.
Daniel wasn’t Scherri-Lee’s first boyfriend from the ranks of the Eagles, as she was previously in a relationship with Brad Sheppard from May 2018 to December 2019.
