"Michael and I want to introduce you to someone ... Meet Hakavai Hoskin," she wrote.

Turia has shared much of her pregnancy journey on Instagram, excitedly awaiting the arrival of the baby.

Turia's story has gripped Australia since she was caught in a fire while running an ultramarathon in Western Australia in 2011. She suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost seven fingers and underwent 200 operations on her road to recovery.

She continues to inspire people with her wit and grit, sharing her journey as a motivational speaker and author of two books.


We're frothing to meet you Baby Hoskin!
