‘My SON. 37.5 weeks this body of mine despite its challenges has grown you, kept you safe, healthy and strong,’ Vanessa wrote.
The star, who also appeared on Bachelor In Paradise, went on to reveal pregnancy has been a ‘different’ experience for her with her enduring complications.
‘All I’d ever really seen and heard is that the first trimester is rough and then it’s mostly smooth sailing from then on till birth,’ she said.
‘I thought I’d be brunching with friends, doing Pilates, eating extremely healthy and have that pregnancy glow that people talk about.’

Vanessa, however, revealed she has suffered for months for her pregnancy journey complicated by hyperemesis gravidarum.
‘Hyperemesis gravidarum (severe vomiting) throughout this entire pregnancy; there are good days and bad days (wish someone had warned me that weeing yourself whilst vomiting is a real thing.’
‘The complete lack of control over your hormones/emotions. One minute happy as Larry, the next balling your eyes out in Kmart when you see how fugly maternity bras and undies are, but you still buy them because nothing else fits.
Vanessa shared on Nick Cummins season of The Bachelor in 2018. She largely retreated from the spotlight prior to her pregnancy announcement. Nick, coincidentally, just welcomed his first child with partner, Alexandra George
“Wondering if my boobs and nips are forever destined to this huge or will they return to their original size?!’
The star also said she had problems with her immune system.
‘Immune system has gone haywire and at one point I was taken to emergency for anaphylaxis (had no clue I was allergic to anything and now have to carry an epi pen for the rest of my life). In general pregnancy has been challenging on my emotional, mental and physical health,’ she wrote.
The star finished by saying while she is ‘emotionally and physically exhausted’ some days, she is happy she will soon hold her little boy.
‘Regardless of the hard times am so incredibly grateful for this little boy and know he’s such a blessing. It’s been a wild ride, we’re nervous and excited for this next special chapter in our lives. We love you so much already baby, ready whenever you are.’
Nick (pictured) famously didn’t choose anyone on his season of The Bachelor. He later revealed he was in a relationship with socialite, Alex George. Here in Hong Kong
