Nadia Lim’s big news

The Kiwi cooking star has a happy secret to share!
Nadia Lim on Woman's Day cover

She’s won MasterChef, written bestselling cookbooks and launched the hit meal delivery company My Food Bag, and now Nadia Lim is ready to tackle her latest challenge: motherhood!

In this week’s Woman’s Day, the 29-year-old cooking queen reveals she and husband Carlos Bagrie are expecting their first child together.

The baby news came as something of a happy surprise for the busy couple, who are currently dividing their time between New Zealand and Australia as they expand My Food Bag overseas.

“I’m pretty calm and collected, but poor Carlos just sat there all night like a possum in the headlights,” Nadia says of the night her pregnancy test came back positive.

“He made me do a few more tests just to prove it.”

The pair are over the moon about adding to their family, and now that Nadia’s morning sickness is finally behind her, she can’t wait to share her baby joy. With the devastating loss of her dad Ken last year, the news couldn’t have come at a better time for Nadia and her family.

“We found out on August 6, which was two days before the first anniversary of my dad dying. It helps to think some things happen for a reason,” she reveals.

“It’s taken a while to get our heads around it because it happened so quickly,” she says, “but it’s exciting and really nice to have something positive for my family to focus on. It’s a blessing.”

Congratulatory messages have already started flooding in on Nadia’s social media pages, with fans on Facebook gushing over the chef’s big news on a post that has garnered over 10,000 likes.

“Congrats Nadia and husband … about the best thing you’ve cooked thus far, lol,” wrote Marcus Harris.

“Many congratulations to you both, Nadia and Carlos. You so richly deserve this life changing experience and I’m sure you will make awesome parents,” added Ian Hall.
