“Luke and I are absolutely thrilled (and a little terrified) to announce that we will be welcoming Baby Trickett 4.0 to the world in May!!” she revealed in the caption.

“Poppy isn’t sure she’s ready for another baby, Eddie thinks it’s going to be a little girl, and Bronte is excited to be a big sister but really has no idea what’s in store for her.”

The comments were flooded with congratulations and well wishes for the family.

‘Wild!!! Congratulations dear x,” wrote Sunrise weather presenter Sam Mac.

Fellow Olympian and skier Britteny Cox wrote, “Congratulations! This is great news.’

“Congratulations fam!!” singer Amy Sheppard added.

Libby, who was once the fastest female swimmer in the world, had to give up her swimming career at the age of 28 due to an injury.

She wrote about her struggles during her memoir, Beneath The Surface, admitting that the future was “dark” at the time, but she has since become a devoted mother, TV personality, and author.

Last year, Libby reflected on her history with postpartum depression following the birth of her daughter Bronte.

The 34-year-old told The Daily Telegraph that changes in life can be “quite daunting.”

“I think when you have a change like that in your life, it can always be pretty daunting,” she said.

“Especially for me, knowing that I’ve had a history of postpartum depression, and it’s certainly something we’re very aware of.”
