Pregnancy Birth

Toni Street shares her 20-week baby scan

They're halfway through their third pregnancy already!

It's an exciting year for popular broadcaster Toni Street, who shared the happy news in February that she and husband Matt France are expecting a third baby, via surrogate.

This week Toni shared an ultrasound photo of the couple's unborn son on Instagram, writing: "Halfway already! Can't wait to meet you lil boy."

The mum of two is unable to carry a baby because she has a life-threatening auto-immune disease Churg-Strauss. She went into remission last year.

Her childhood friend Sophie Braggins is carrying the couple's third baby - a boy - which is due in August.

In response to the photo, one follower replied: "You are in for a treat, little boys bring a whole new level of love for their Mumas 😍"

Meanwhile Renee Wright gushed, "Heart melt! Hi gorgeous wee man 💙 Cant wait for cuddles xxx"

Toni and her surrogate Sophie have been friends since intermediate school, and have remained close through the years. Toni has revealed that she and husband Matt feel "incredibly blessed" to have had Sophie offer to carry their child. They've also had the "unwavering support" of Sophie's husband, Michael.

In an interview with NEXT magazine Toni was very vocal about her desire to have more children.

"I've always wanted a big family. It wouldn't be the end of the world if I couldn't because I've got two lovely little girls, but there's still something in me that thinks I'm not done. My ideal number is probably three. I always thought four – until I had kids!"

Happy days!
