Congratulations are in order for social media influencer Kayla Itsines and her fiancé Tobi Pearce: The super-fit couple are expecting their first child next May.

Itsines, who is the founder of the fitness community Sweat, announced the news to her 10 million Instagram followers earlier today in a sweet video.

"I've wanted kids ever since I met Tobi, and it's something we have always talked about," Itsines said in a statement. "It turns out that when we were ready, it was just perfect timing."

The couple, based in Adelaide, Australia, are excited to hold a gender reveal around the holidays for their families and friends. "Everyone will find out around Christmas time," Itsines said. (Fingers crossed her Instagram followers do, too!)

Itsines is 20 weeks pregnant and will give birth in Australia's winter. "[Tobi] will make the most perfect father," she said. "I've never seen him so excited about anything. He has already planned the funniest fluffy outfits for our winter baby, and he talks to my tummy every morning and night."
