Just five weeks before welcoming baby Naitanui, Brittany Bown showed off her growing bump.
The mum-to-be proudly posed with her pregnant belly on display, wearing nothing but a bra and black pants.
“5 weeks left 🖤,” the Pilates instructor wrote to her 9,000 Instagram followers.
Bown, who is also a wellness columnist for STM, and West Coast Eagles ruckman Nic Naitanui are expecting a baby boy, due in late September.
The couple, who have been together for two years, announced the gender of their upcoming arrival at a lavish baby shower in Crown Perth earlier this month.
Naitanui and Bown’s family members were in attendance, along with Bown’s other WAG friends, including Dani Shuey and Aymee Redden.
Guests were treated to flowing champagne and decadent gourmet cuisine, as they overlooked the Perth skyline.
The couple first shared the pregnancy news in an exclusive STM interview, where they spoke of their shared joy at embarking on the next chapter of their relationship together.
“We were both thrilled and super surprised, expecting a bit more of a trip (trying to get pregnant),” she said.
“I think culture will play a big role (in our child’s upbringing),” Naitanui added.
“I guess growing up in Australia, one big thing that I haven’t given up is my Fijian heritage and my past there. So for me, I think it would be great to teach our child Fijian. I would like my children to be bilingual and speak both languages and also just understand where they come from and what preceded them.
Bown admitted that Naitanui’s relaxed outlook on life gave him a sense of relief and confidence ahead of their journey as parents together.
“Nic is so much fun, and I think he reminds me that sometimes that’s the best part of life,” she said.
“I feel very comfortable becoming a parent knowing that our child will always have someone to play with and make them laugh.
“He’s not a freak either. He’ll say “well, we’ll sleep later” or “we’ll take care of that”. I know that as things come up, if I’m stressed out, he’s the kind of person who will be fine, say it’s no big deal, and calm the whole situation down.
