Rugby star Benji Marshall and his wife Zoe were recently spotted enjoying a luxurious holiday on Hamilton Island after announcing they are expecting their first child. Showing off the beginnings of her baby bump in a bikini, TV personality and radio host Zoe Marshall shared some holiday happy snaps on Instagram. The images showed her and husband Benji enjoying a babymoon, smiling onboard a boat as they sailed around beautiful Hamilton Island.
33-year-old Zoe and her sports star husband were seen soaking up the sunshine and relaxing around Hamilton Island Resort as she completes her first trimester. With her golden tan on full display, the journalist was also seen posing alongside her husband looking the picture of content, captioning her post ‘No words. Feeling very grateful.'
The baby announcement was exciting news for the couple after Zoe recently shared her struggle with endometriosis. Speaking with Woman’s Day magazine, Zoe admitted that she had been battling stage-four endometriosis, a painful condition that affects the uterus and can cause difficulty in conceiving and even infertility. Speaking to the publication, Zoe said that she was shocked when she learned she had finally fallen pregnant.
Finding out on her birthday, the pregnancy news was perhaps the best but most unexpected gift she could have received. She told the magazine that 'I was so shocked I fell on the floor crying.' The couple announced their good news on Father’s Day and took to Instagram to share some shots from the photoshoot they did with Woman’s Day to show off her blossoming belly.
The couple recently celebrated with a stunning baby shower in Brisbane with the social media darling confirming that the couple would host multiple baby showers in various cities around Australia to celebrate with friends and family near and far.
