‘We always spoke about wanting two kids. We never really planned it in terms of timing, but we’re really happy,’ former NRL player Cooper, 36, said.
Tara, who is five months along revealed that the couple were successfully able to keep the pregnancy under wraps.
‘Somehow we’ve been able to conceal [the pregnancy] this time around. I think it’s because nobody asked!’ the Fox Sports presenter admitted.

Like with her first pregnancy, the 36-year-old has experienced some nausea, but this time she also has a two-year-old to chase after.
‘It definitely adds a different level of intensity when you’re chasing a fast-footed two-year-old around while pregnant,’ she added.
Last year, Cooper defected from the Melbourne Storm to the Sydney Rosters in order to be closer to Tara.
