Jennifer Hawkins and husband Jake Wall are expecting a baby girl.
An excited Ms Hawkins made the announcement via Instagram on Friday and said: "I'm sooo happy to share with you some exciting news! Jake and I are expecting a baby girl!! We can't wait to meet her!
Mr Wall also shared the happy photo on social media and said he "can't wait to meet our little girl".
Friends and fans were quick to congratulate the couple, including Australian model Megan Gale who said: "Just the most beautiful news!!! Congratulations guys."
Ms Hawkins, 35, who grew up in Newcastle and was named Miss Universe in 2004, married Mr Wall in Bali in 2013.
In 2016, Ms Hawkins defended US President Donald Trump after a video of an exchange between the pair emerged. In the video, filmed in Sydney in 2011, Mr Trump made lewd comments about the model before leaning in for what appears to be a non-consensual kiss.
At the time, Ms Hawkins said she would only reflect on how Mr Trump had treated her when she won the Miss Universe in 2004, which he then owned.
"I've said it before, he has treated me with respect, and so has his family. Beyond that, what else am I going to comment on," she said.
"That's not saying I agree with everything that's been happening … but I am not going to sit here and throw negative comments out there, it's just not who I am. I don't like drama in my life so I try to stay away from that," she said.
