Justine Schofield is expecting her first child with AFL star boyfriend Brent Staker.

And the celebrity chef and her footy player beau celebrated their baby shower with friends and family at Bronte Surf Lifesaving Club in Sydney on Sunday.

Justine, 36, shared a series of snaps to Instagram from the event, which also doubled as a gender reveal party.

‘Not long now until our baby Stakerfield arrives,’ the former MasterChef contestant captioned the post, which saw Justine and Brent, 38, holding pink and blue balloons.

Justine looked glowing in a white frock that skimmed over her baby bump as she posed for photos with her partner on the balcony of the beachfront venue.

Guests were treated to cupcakes, an antipasto platter and alcoholic beverages.

The couple are yet to publicly reveal the gender of their unborn baby, although the guests at the party presumably found out when the balloons were popped.

Justine revealed back in May they were expecting their first child together, sharing a photo to Instagram of the proud parents-to-be in their living room.

‘We’re having a bubba. So excited, so grateful,’ she wrote.

In the image, Justine posed in black activewear as she tenderly cradled her bump, while Brent pointed at her belly button in astonishment.

Justine and Brent began dating in March 2020. 

In August 2021, Justine briefly spoke about her relationship status during an interview with Gary Mehigan’s A Plate to Call Home podcast.

Offering a rare glimpse into her dating history, the blonde spoke of the break-ups she had while filming her Channel 10 cooking show Everyday Gourmet.

‘I’ve had two terrible break-ups throughout the ten years, and it all comes down to not being around because I’m always on the road,’ she said.
