Matildas midfielder Katrina Gorry and fiancee Clara Markstedt have revealed they are expecting a baby boy in a heartwarming gender reveal video.
Gorry, 31, shared news that the couple were expecting last month, but decided to reveal the gender of the new addition to their family on Tuesday via a video on social media.
The post was captioned, ‘I guess we are BOY mums now,’ and showed a black and white clip of the pair exploding a confetti bomb which changed to reveal the colour blue.
The video finished with Gorry’s two-year-old daughter Harper throwing the blue confetti in the air.
And it didn’t take long for many of her Matildas teammates to respond with well wishes, with Caitlin Foord, Mackenzie Arnold, Charli Grant, Ellie Carptener and Steph Catley all leaving messages.

Gorry and Markstedt, 34, were teammates at Swedish club Vittsjo GIK, but their next move is unknown after the striker recently retired.
Another club in Europe or the US is the likely destination, and Gorry won’t be short of offers after she was a standout for Australia at the World Cup.
Before the tournament on home soil, the Matildas first ever captain, Julie Dolan, told Daily Mail Australia that Gorry was even more important to the side’s chances at the World Cup than her more high-profile teammates.
‘People keep talking about the big guns like Sam [Kerr] and Ellie [Carpenter] and people like that, and that’s great – they are global, household names.
‘But Katrina Gorry is my favourite. You can’t win without Gorry,’ Dolan declared.
When it comes to baby number two for the happy couple, Markstedt will carry their bundle of joy this time round, after Gorry welcomed daughter Harper into the world following IVF treatment in 2021.
Earlier this year, Gorry and Markstedt announced their engagement, with the plan to get married at Hamilton Island come 2025.
Gorry and Markstedt met as teammates when the Australian moved to Sweden to play for Vittsjo in 2022.

‘We are going to try to keep it as traditional and beautiful as we can,’ Gorry said.
‘A lot of the Matildas have been my family for a long time so they were so excited for me.
‘I’d love to have them there.’
