20 Kayla Announced Her Pregnancy In December of 2018
Roughly one week before Christmas 2018, Kayla let the world know that she's expecting her first baby. Kayla is really happy and her partner, Tobi, spends his free time talking to Kayla's tummy. Kayla and Tobi have so much to be joyful about lately. They are successful, wealthy, full of plans for the future, and on the brink of parenthood.
After they decided to try for a baby, Kayla and Tobi wondered if it would take a while to get pregnant, but it happened really fast. At the beginning of her pregnancy, Kayla relied on dry toast and other plain carbs to try and relieve morning sickness. Usually, she prefers a Mediterranean diet.
19 She's Currently Engaged To Tobi Pearce
In April of 2018, Kayla got engaged to her long-time love, Tobi. These two are so in tune. They both believe that fitness builds confidence. They work together to keep Kayla's fitness empire strong and growing.
Tobi put a ring on it when Kayla was 26. While the couple still hasn't married, they are planning to tie the knot. Right now, they're focusing on getting ready for their baby. They are really enjoying the whole pregnancy experience.
Tobi is always there for Kayla and she's very much in love with her fiancé. It was Tobi who encouraged Kayla to turn her personal trainer routines for clients into e-books.
18 Kayla Is 27 Years Old
Kayla Itsines is pregnant at 27. She's having a baby at a fairly young age. This baby may be the first of many for her. Kayla comes from a big Greek family and she is so into her family. Her own family is ecstatic about the baby.
Her partner, Tobi, had a rougher upbringing and actually left home at a very young age, just to escape the family problems and find some happiness for himself. Tobi was homeless for a while.
Now, he's the CEO of SWEAT (the company that produced Kayla's app). Kayla and Tobi will make sure that their child has security and lots of love. They have a lot to give to a baby.
17 She Does a 28-Minute Pregnancy Workout Daily
Kalya Itsines is staying on the safe side with fitness by scaling down the intensity of her pregnancy workouts. She's now using weights that are half as heavy as what she normally uses. Even so, some fans who follow her on social media have gotten critical by wondering if her workouts are too extreme for an expecting mom.
Kayla argues that she knows other pregnant women who are carrying around heavy toddlers and bags of groceries, which weigh much more than her fitness accessories, such as dumbbells, do. Kayla believes in low-impact exercise during pregnancy. She works out for 28 minutes a day.
16 She Felt Lethargic During Trimester 1
Like most moms-to-be, Kayla felt tired during her first trimester and also had to deal with morning sickness. There aren't many moms who escape these two early pregnancy symptoms.
Fatigue and nausea are triggered by hormonal shifts. A hormone, estrogen, is linked with that unpleasant queasy feeling. Another hormone produced at this time, progesterone, makes pregnant women sleepy.
By trimester two, Kayla was feeling much better and actually missed her nausea because feeling nauseated made her feel pregnant. Although Kayla is extremely fit, she didn't escape the biggest early pregnancy symptoms. Her high fitness level may help her to handle labour and delivery well, though.
15 She Encourages Pregnant Women To Take It Easy
While Kayla thinks that light workouts are beneficial to pregnant women, she also encourages moms-to-be to rest. She doesn't think that expectant moms should push themselves too hard.
Kayla's own fatigue was a big clue that she was pregnant. She didn't have her usual energy on a walk and began to wonder if she was pregnant. She then took a pregnancy test, but it showed a negative result. Shortly afterwards, she took a second pregnancy test which showed a positive result.
Since Kayla's fitness level is so high, she is very tuned in to her own body. Any changes to how she feels are noticeable right away.
14 She's Avoiding High-intensity Exercise
Jumping is off the fitness menu during Kayla's pregnancy. Kayla's become a fitness icon by showing women how to transform their bodies quickly, through workouts that give women enough confidence to strut their stuff on the beach.
Kayla has since switched to lighter weights and she's also stopping doing jumping movements. She's being very careful to do workouts that are pregnancy-safe.
Kayla's life is centred around fitness. After she gets up each day and has a light snack, she heads for the gym. It's her workplace. By changing up her workouts during pregnancy, she's ensuring that she stays fit, without doing anything that might hurt the unborn baby.
13 Her Baby Is Due In May Of 2019
Kayla was born on the 21st of May and her baby is due in May. Will Kayla have the same birthday as her child? It's possible. Sometimes, babies don't come exactly when they are expected, so it's hard to say if Kayla's baby will come early, or on time, or late.
To let the world know about her pregnancy, she posted a video on Instagram. Kayla is always connecting with her fans through social media, as well as her app. She has a huge following worldwide and her fans are definitely excited about her pregnancy. Kayla has revealed that she's interested in choosing a Greek name for her baby.
12 She's Nicknamed Her Unborn Baby
While Kayla Itsines hasn't picked a baby name yet or hasn't revealed a baby name if she has picked one out, she's got a cute nickname for her unborn baby. It's "muffin". Her partner, Tobi, refers to the unborn baby as "muffin" all of the time and so does Kayla.
Kayla says that Tobi has been amazing while she's been pregnant. He's stepped up by going to all of Kayla's medical appointments with her, including a very exciting ultrasound.

9 Her Daughter Will Grow Up In A Rich Family
