Masterchef celebrity chef Chelsea Winter has a "Chelsea bun" in the oven, announcing she and partner, winemarker Douglas Renall, are expecting "the arrival of a delicious bundle later this year".
Following in the footsteps of famous New Zealand mums such as Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and hockey star Gemma McCaw, Winter announced her pregnancy on Instagram, with a photo of three measuring spoons.
"Douglas and I are absolutely chuffed to announce we're expecting the arrival of a delicious bundle later this year. We're just so grateful, and uber excited for what the future holds."
Winter similarly went public on her pairing with author and winemaker Renall on Instagram in February.
She said, on exchanging her busy Auckland life for a beach lifestyle; "[I'm] feeling incredibly grateful to finally call this magical place my home."
Winter already has Bay of Plenty connections, with her father Mark Winter living on Marine Parade in the Mount.
Her brother Simon and sister Dana and their families also live in the Bay.
