After tackling some of the biggest waves on the planet, champion Australian surfer Taj Burrow is preparing for his next challenge- fatherhood.
The 35-year-old sportsman and his girlfriend Rebecca Jobson announced the happy news via social media at the weekend, with former Australia’s Next Top Model star Rebecca sharing a photo of her burgeoning belly.
The glowing expectant mother, 25, is seen posing side-on wearing a cute patterned bikini and looks down at her tummy in the snap.
The brunette beauty confirmed her romance with pro surfer Taj in a similar fashion May last year after she shared a series of loved up snaps of the couple together.
The steady relationship must have come as a welcome relief for Taj, who dated The Face host Cheyenne Tozzi for several years before hitting it off with Rebecca.
The relationship famously came to an end when pictures surfaced of Cheyenne with oil heir Brandon Davis canoodling on a beach in the US.
Taj was heartbroken at the time, telling Stab surfing magazine that he couldn’t get the images out of his head.
Having launched his professional career at the tender age of 17, Taj is competing in the ASP World Tour and is currently vying for a place in the finals at the Margret River Pro in Western Australia.
