AFL WAG Julie Neale shows off her baby bump after pregnancy news
She announced she was expecting her first child with her husband, Brownlow Medal winner Lachie Neale, on Tuesday.
And AFL WAG Julie Neale looked ecstatic as she took a stroll the following day with her parents in Brisbane.
The blonde beauty beaming from ear-to-ear as she showed off her baby bump in activewear.
She dressed comfortably for the walk in a pair of black leggings and a baggy white T-shirt.
The mother-to-be was glowing makeup free and fastened her blonde locks in a ponytail.
She also carried a protective face mask, which are now mandatory in all indoor areas in Brisbane.
On Tuesday, Lachie, 27, shared a photo of himself kissing his wife's baby bump on Instagram.
'Can't wait to meet you baby girl,' the Brisbane Lions midfielder wrote in the caption, alongside a baby emoji and a pink ribbon.
Jules also shared the same picture on Instagram, affectionately calling their unborn child 'Baby Neale.'
She wrote in the lengthy caption: 'We have dreamt about meeting you for a long time now little one.
'The road to you was long and trying but I wouldn't change it for the world. It has changed me.
'The journey to you has made me realise I am stronger than I ever thought I could be and I can do anything with your dad's support.
'You were definitely worth the wait and I am so ready to hold you in my arms and be your mumma baby girl,' she added, before sending 'extra love' to other women trying to conceive saying: 'You are so strong, I see you, I am you.'
Jules also shared a short video on her Instagram Story of a cute baby dress for her unborn daughter, and wrote: 'My heart cannot deal with this level of cuteness.'
The couple's friends and family congratulated the couple on their exciting news, including Jessie Murphy, the wife of AFL star Marc Murphy, who wrote: 'Congratulations you two.'
Brisbane Lions player Archie Smith commented: 'Congrats you two,' while retired netball star Nat Medhurst said: 'Massive congrats to you guys.'
Lachie and Jules tied the knot in November, 2018, in Perth.
He switched teams from Fremantle to the Lions after seven seasons in order to settle down in Brisbane with Julie shortly after they wed.
He explained at the time that a move to Brisbane had been difficult for Julie, who had built a hairdressing business 'from scratch' and had to give it up to build a relationship across the country with him.
The couple's exciting baby news comes after Lachie suffered an injury in a game against the Geelong Cats last week at GMHBA Stadium in Victoria.
During the game, Geelong Cats forward Gary Rohan swung his arm at Lachie's neck.
Afterwards, the Brisbane Lion's star nursed the sore jaw and held up three fingers, hinting that Rohan would be spending three weeks away from the field.
As a result the Match Review Officer decided that Rohan will serve a two-match sanction following the on the field row, according to The Age.Read more
