Pearson first announced she was expecting in January this year, sharing an adorable photo of her and her husband holding a pair of tiny baby shoes and an ultrasound photo.

“My husband Kieran and I are pleased to announce that we are expecting our first child,” Pearson wrote at the time.

“To start the next chapter of our lives with such joy and love is more than we could’ve ever hoped for,” she continued.

“We are looking forward to meeting our little one in July this year, just before the Tokyo Olympics start!! Gotta start them young!”

Congratulations to the happy new family!
