She may be a swimming champion, but it’s clear that Lisa Curry counts her grandchildren as a greater achievement.

There’s rarely a day that the former Olympic swimmer isn’t doting over the three boys – Flynn, six, Taj, three and Kit, two.

Lisa, 62, became a grandmother in March 2018 when her daughter Morgan welcomed her first son, Flynn, with her partner Ryan Gruell. 

It didn’t take long for the I’m A Celeb alum to revel in the news with her fans. From day one, she’s been a constant source of bub updates.

Two years later, Lisa was equally overjoyed to welcome a second grandson, Taj, and a third named Kit in May 2022.

In honour of the adorable brood, we’ve taken a look back at some of the cutest moments between Lisa Curry and her grandchildren .

“My beautiful baby made this beautiful baby. 😊,” Lisa captioned an adorable picture of the sleeping newborn.

“Congratulations @morgangruell and Ryan for this little bundle of joy, even though he sleeps most of the time still! 2 weeks old and Flynn is completely adorable 💙💙.”

“Little Flynn and my beautiful mum Pat,” she wrote. “I find it amazing to be a Grannie…. Must be incredible to be a great grandma… All the more reason to look after ourselves 😊.”
