Shelly Craft: We're having a beach baby!

The TV host has more reason than ever to smile – she’s going to be a mum. And, as she tells Clare Rigden, her dog knew before she did!

She’s known as one of the sunniest, most boundlessly energetic stars on Australian TV. But Shelley Craft has nothing on the two family members who rush out to greet Woman’s Day as we arrive at her beautiful Byron Bay home.

“Excuse my dogs – they’re a little on the enthusiastic side,” she laughs, as Beau, 6, and Jackson, 5, give us a warm, waggy welcome.

Dressed in a free-flowing pink summer dress, and looking relaxed in a way that only a weekend in Byron can achieve, Shelley greets us with her trademark mile-wide smile.

And that famous grin has been wider than ever since she found out she was pregnant with her first child, due late August.

“We’re so excited. We can’t wait!” she says, turning to her husband of four months, Christian Sergiacomi. “It’s all happened quite quickly, but we couldn’t be happier.”

The last time Woman’s Day caught up with Shelley, she’d just celebrated her marriage to Christian, a freelance cameraman she met while presenting on The Great Outdoors.

The couple, who worked for five years on the travel show before they began dating in 2007, tied the knot in a low-key beach ceremony at Byron, with just a small gathering of family and friends.

The laid-back pair couldn’t hide their joy at becoming husband and wife, and radiated happiness – just as they do now, sharing their happy news.

“It really has been a magical year,” Shelley says, looking over and smiling at Christian. “So much has happened, both with work, and in our lives. We feel really blessed. I’m not sure everything’s sunk in yet!”
