The twosome, who are renowned for being some of the ‘nicest people on television’ chose an unusual name for their first born, one we certainly haven’t heard before! Ziya Christopher Demmrich is the official name of the new bub!


Here he is! Ziya Christopher Demmrich. Weighing 8.5 lbs. 51cm long. Best miracle I’ve ever seen. Extra special being able to help guide him out then cut the cord!

After appearing on Season Eight of the hit TV show, Kyal and Kara have continued renovating and flipping houses along with securing themselves a number of brand ambassadorial roles. Throughout her pregnancy, Kara kept her 125,000 followers updated on her progress, regularly posting photos of her maternity fashion, revealing she’s both nervous and excited and being real about the sometimes confrontational changes her body was going through.


Although being overdue is driving me crazy, it’s giving us a chance to organise the nursery – This is the beautiful 4-in-1 cot from our @theblock family – the ‘Rocky’ from @lilly_and_lolly – currently a cot with rocking seat, will eventually become a bed!

‘At First Sight Pantsuit’ from @baethelabel ?? If I’m totally honest…I wasn’t prepared for the changes in my body that occur during pregnancy. Its taken me a long time to look at my growing belly and surrender to the amazing metamorphosis that occurs whilst growing a baby. I’ve teamed up with @baethelabel and put together my top staples ‘Wish List’ – because when I’m feeling comfortable in what I’m wearing, I’m naturally more confident… And at a time when my body is changing daily, it’s a nice feeling.
