The Block 2017 winners Elyse Knowles and Josh Barker have confirmed that they are expecting their third child.

Taking to Instagram on June 12th, the reality stars shared several happy snaps of their family holiday in Fiji that showed Elyse posing with a very prominent baby bump alongside her sons Sunny, 3, and Zaii, 1.

“The boys are excited for another brother or sister 🙏🏼,” Elyse captioned the post.

While it is unclear when lovebirds will be welcoming the newest addition to their family into the world, Elyse’s blossoming baby bump makes us believe their baby will be arriving earthside by the end of 2024.

The announcement comes at a special milestone for the season 13 winners and was made one year after Elyse gave birth to the couple’s second child, Zaii.

Elyse and Josh welcomed their first child Sunny in February 2021, shortly after they confirmed they had become engaged. The pair have been together for almost a decade.

While a date for the wedding has not been set, we are sure all three children will have a starring role!

The family has resided in Byron Bay since 2019 after relocating from Melbourne for a quieter life. In May 2020 they purchased a $2.3 million beachhouse which they extensively renovated and still live in to this day.

After shooting to fame on The Block – and ultimately winning thanks to a $3.067 bid made by Dave ‘Hughesy’ Hughes at auction – the couple also founded J&E Projects.

On their website, they describe their business as being a design and construction company “aimed at those who aspire to build a home or a commercial space that reflects their lifestyle, their values, and their individual style.”
