Childhood sweethearts Jordi Lippe-McGraw and hubby Ross McGraw promised to “go on lots of adventures” when they tied the knot back in 2015.
They decided to visit all seven continents together before trying to fall pregnant.
In January they reached Antarctica – their final stop – where they confirmed they’re now expecting a baby boy!
“We made each other a promise that we’d visit all the continents before we had kids.
“So, it makes sense to announce from Antarctica, our final continent, that we’re expecting Baby Boy McGraw this May. We can’t wait for this next adventure!”
Over the past two years the couple have visited Africa, Europe, North and South America, Australasia, Asia and finally Antarctica before announcing their pregnancy.
During their travels they’ve been on safari, bike riding in Amsterdam and seen the Sydney Opera House and Big Ben. They also visited the Great Wall of China, Bermuda, saw flowing lava in Hawaii and enjoyed picturesque St Lucia.
Travel writer Jordi found out she was pregnant in Luxemburg.
She and TV exec husband Ross are now expecting their first child together in May this year.
“In our wedding vows we promised each other a life of adventure and made this a fun challenge.
"Antarctica was our final continent and I was 20 weeks pregnant when we went. We had booked this trip about 2 years prior, so I had no idea I’d be pregnant,” said Jordi.
The couple who have been together for 17 years say that the reaction to their news has been nothing short of amazing.
“People loved the idea of us travelling and then to announce our pregnancy on the final stop was perfect.
“I hope that the baby catches the travel bug too.
“We’ll definitely keep travelling when we have him – but maybe not to Antarctica just yet.”
