New to Bounty?
Aussie Comedian Celia Pacquola announced some very exciting news on in late March. The 39yo took to Instagram to let us all know that she’s expecting her first child with partner Dara Munnis.
In the post, which included images of the smirking mum-to-be holding a ‘Time Lord In Training’ onesie up against her burgeoning bump and an ultrasound image, Celia joked: “Whoever had ‘Celia gets pregnant’ on their Unprecedented Events bingo card, you can cross it off now!”
The Rosehaven star continued, “Wild. I’m very happy and yes I miss wine!” before sharing a camera and baby emoji and tagging her Irish photographer partner, Dara.
“Also please consider this my official audition to be the next Doctor Who as I currently have two hearts,” the star joked.
“I’m very happy and I miss wine!”
And when we tell you the comment section was overflowing with blue ticks we are not exaggerating!
The quick-witted star has graced our screens alongside some of the country’s biggest stars on show like Celebrity Gogglebox, Rove, The Project, The Hundred with Andy Lee, Would I Lie to You? Australia, Spicks and Specks, Have You Been Paying Attention? plus many more and it’s fair to say the happy news was met with pure joy.
Close friend Rove McManus was first to jump on, exclaiming, “WHAAAAAAAAT? Welcome to the unprecedented power of being able to make your own people!”
While The Project host Lisa Wilkinson penned, “Oh Celia, this is the BEST news! Huge multiple-hearted congrats.”
Former Bachelorette, Angie Kent added a string of hearts, while fellow comedian, Celeste Barber gave a nod to Celia’s win on 2020 Dancing with the Stars, saying, “This is MAGNIFICENT. So happy for you. A real ‘tiny dancer'”
A thrilled Dave Hughes added, “Cray cray! Love it! Congrats!”
Celia and Dara have mostly kept their relationship out of the public eye and little is known about the timeline.
Celia’s Irish love shared her announcement post to his stories, captioning it, “2022 is going to be all sorts of amazing!”
