Joe and Sofi expecting 'Miracle' first child

Joe Ofahengaue and his partner Sofi Leota are expecting their first child.

It’s a wonderful story for the couple - the little one conceived just one year after Leota finished chemotherapy treatment.

Sofi, who is in breast cancer remission, shared the news to Instagram, saying she and Joe felt “so blessed”.

“OUR MIRACLE BABY. We are so excited to welcome you into this crazy, beautiful life of ours, angel,” she wrote.

“Conceived just shy of 12 months since finishing chemo in 2018 & growing beautiful and perfectly – so blessed.”

She continued: “After the shittiest year of my life last year, a fun and eventful one this year, I’m 100 per cent looking forward to last year.”

Joe also shared the baby news on Insta, saying “everything happens for a reason”.

“Can’t wait to meet you our little blessing ! @sofileota love you so much and can’t believe how fast the past year has gone,” he wrote. “Everything happens for a reason and I’m so glad I am doing life with you my darling. Love you always and am so excited for the next chapter.”

The baby is due in May, 2020.
