Fitness influencer Kayla Itsines has shared exciting family news. The Sweat co-founder is expecting her second child! Kayla and her fiancé Jae Woodroffe will be welcoming their first child together in January of 2023.
“We are SO excited to share the news that our family is growing,” the personal trainer wrote in her announcement post. “SO much to celebrate & be grateful for! We can’t wait to share this journey with you.” Kayla welcomed her first child, a daughter named Arna Leia, in May of 2019. Kayla shares Arna with her former partner Tobi Pearce. The couple, who co-founded the fitness app Sweat – formerly known as Bikini Body Guides – split in 2020. Kayla shared that “Arna cannot wait to be a big sister.” The personal trainer also updated her Instagram bio to reveal that she is 15 weeks along in her pregnancy.
Just last week, Kayla and Jae announced that they were engaged after dating for one year. In May, Jae joined Kayla during a live Q & A on her Instagram page and was asked if he would ever like to have biological children of his own to which he responded, “absolutely.” There is little known about Jae’s personal life and career, though he is featured frequently on Kayla’s social media.
Congratulations to Kayla and Jae on the news of their first child together! We wish them all the best as they prepare to welcome their little one into the world.
