Lisa Curry shares her joy at becoming a 'grannie again' as daughter Morgan announces pregnancy


Lisa Curry revealed her excitement at becoming a ‘grannie again’ after daughter Morgan Gruell announced she’s expecting her third child with husband Ryan Gruell.

The former competitive swimmer, 59, re-posted Morgan’s photo of her growing baby bump to her Instagram on Monday, and congratulated her ‘baby girl’ on the news.

Morgan’s pregnancy announcement comes after she commemorated one year since the death of her sister Jaimi Kenny (Lisa Curry and Grant Kenny’s daughter), who passed away at age 33.

‘Life is crazy – we might as well stay in the crazy! Baby #3 due end of May!’ Morgan captioned the sonogram. 

Morgan also shares sons Flynn, three, and Taj, one, with Ryan.  

In mid September, Lisa and her family made a poignant trip to the beach to commemorate one year since Jaimi’s tragic death. 

Jaimi suffered from alcoholism, depression and an eating disorder prior to her death.

Lisa was joined by her surviving children, Morgan and Jett Kenny, 27, and her husband, Mark Tabone, as she threw flowers into the ocean to honour Jaimi, who died on September 14, 2020.  

Lisa also shared a moving quote from Dr. Joanne Cacciatore Aguerke about losing a child, which she said summed up ‘what we can’t express’.

It read: ‘Don’t forget that even if I have living children, my heart still aches for the one who is not here – for I am never quite complete without my child.

‘My child may have died; but my love – and my motherhood – never will.’

Another section said: ‘There are days when I still feel paralysed. My chest feels the sinking weight of my child’s absence and, sometimes, I feel as if I will explode from the grief.’

The accompanying photos showed Lisa, Morgan and her grandson Flynn, throwing flowers into the ocean.

Lisa also shared a touching photo of herself holding hands with Morgan and Jett as they gazed into the distance.

A final image captured Lisa and a group of Jaimi’s friends posing for a photo, with the words ‘Jaimi we love you’ written in the sand in front of them.

Lisa also wore a T-shirt with an image of her late daughter on the front.
