She continued: ‘I’ve flown my mum from Australia to Los Angeles to be here for the birth. We’re all so over the moon.’

‘We bring life into this world and I really have a new found respect.’

The brunette beauty has not been shy when it comes to showing off her baby bump and her expectant motherhood experiences. 

A few weeks ago, she showed off her growing and glowing belly on Instagram as she dressed in a chocolate coloured bikini. 

The former Victoria’s Secret model made a play on words in the caption, changing ‘hump day’ – what Wednesday is commonly known as – to ‘bump day’. 

Shanina announced she was expecting her first child with her partner, advertising agent Matthew Adesuyan, on Mother’s Day.
