Em Rusciano announces she is pregnant

Congratulations!

2DayFM radio host Em Rusciano has announced she is pregnant, just over a year after experiencing a miscarriage. 

The 39-year-old radio personality shared the exciting news with fans via Instagram, sharing a hilarious snap of herself against Abigail Breslin’s Superfreak dance sequence in the hit 2006 film Little Miss Sunshine.

She wrote, ‘It’s gonna take more than a superfreak strip routine and a Kombi van to get me out of this one.

‘Jokes guys…I’m totally pregnant and so happy my heart may burst in my chest at any moment.

‘Although I’m not so much little miss sunshine as little miss teary, bloated, nauseous yet ravenously hungry. Let me tell you it’s a different ball game doing this at 39 to 21.

‘It’s a good thing that the stretch marks are in place and ready to go! #geriatricpregnancy #stretchypants#nippleslikefighterpilotsthumbs‘ 

Last year, Rusciano opened up about her miscarriage and announced she’d be ‘taking time off’ to grieve. 

Rusciano and partner Scott Barrow named their unborn son Ray.

‘About 10 weeks ago I got the most wondrous surprise. I found out I was pregnant,’ Rusciano wrote on Facebook at the time.

‘I was going to announce it this Monday as we’d hit 13 weeks, but instead I will be at home in the most exquisite pain I can possibly fathom. Yesterday I found out that my little boy, was lost to me. 

‘I’d only just seen my baby the week before on the ultrasound, kicking and waving. I’d heard his heart beat and began to imagine what type of person he’d become. What colour hair he’d have, I wondered if he’d be serious like his dad or ridiculous like his mother, or perhaps a little bit of both.

‘But now, all I have is that one grainy black and white image, and the rest I will have to imagine. I’m not sure I’m built to withstand this kind of heartbreak, I’m not sure any mother is.’

Scott and Em share two teenage daughters. 

Congratulations to the growing family!
