Turia Pitt has welcomed her second child with partner Michael Hoskin.
The 32-year-old revealed the happy news on Instagram on Sunday evening as she shared an image of herself cradling her newborn son, who has been given the name Rahiti. The unique moniker is of Polynesian descent and means ‘rising sun’.
“Maeva i te ao nei!” she wrote. “Welcome to the world Rahiti.’
The inspirational burns survivor – who was born in Tahiti and moved to Australia at the age of three – already shares son Havakai Hoskin with fiance Michael.
As well as sharing an image of herself with her newborn son, Turia also shared a sweet photograph of the little boy wrapped in a colourful striped blanket.
People were quick to congratulate the couple on their new arrival, including The Project’s Lisa Wilkinson who said: “Just beautiful!!!! Well done mum. And another fabulous name. Big love to all four of you gorgeous humans.”
While Jessica Rowe commented: “Oh how wonderful!! Congratulations beautiful Mama! And welcome to the world Rahiti.”
Another of Turia’s followers wrote: “Congratulations! So much love to you all, enjoy this amazing time.” Another said: “Congrats Turia… May little Rahiti grow up to be a warrior just like his mom and inspire the world in the ways you do.”
Turia announced she was expecting her second child in August last year in a video shared to Instagram. She wrote: “When Michael and I want to share big news, I insist on creating a Beyonce-inspired video montage. Baby #2, we can’t wait to meet you.”
The adorable video began with Turia and Michael sharing a kiss on their balcony, before it cut to footage of the proud mother with Hakavai. Michael was also seen playing with his son in a pool, while another adorable clip showed Turia dancing her eldest son.
