Tony Abbott's daughter Frances has announced she is expecting her first child with husband Sam Loch.

One of the former Australian prime minister's three daughters, Frances ¡ª now Frances Loch ¡ª shared the news in a joyful Instagram post on Monday morning.

"BIG LITTLE BABY LOCH. Joining the party Summer '21," she captioned a black-and-white photo of herself holding her growing stomach.

Frances and Loch, an Olympian rower, married in early 2018, having announced their engagement after just two weeks of dating.

They have since moved to the US city of Portland, Oregon, where Frances works as a fitness instructor with Barre3.

The mum-to-be, who previously competed in fitness modelling expos, often shares snippets of her workouts on Instagram.

The couple celebrated their second anniversary in 2020, Frances writing on Instagram, "Two weeks was all it took to know that forever with you was a mighty fine idea."

Like so many of us, the past 12 months have also seen the couple spend long periods of isolation together, including working from home.

"There's nobody else I'd rather be with, in or out of relative confinement," Loch captioned an Instagram photo of Frances hard at work in their home.

"Also, as a purveyor of focus and hard work, I'm so impressed. She barely talks to me during office hours. Barely blinks either. Is great to ogle though and no HR involved."
