Joy For The Morcombe Family: A New Baby On The Way


It's a time of joy for the Morcombe family with the news that Brad Morcombe -- the twin brother of the late Daniel Morcombe -- is expecting a baby with his wife Anna.

After suffering through 12 years of sheer hell following the disappearance and murder of Daniel, it's a long-waited ray of sunshine for the family. Brad and Anna told The Australian Women's Weekly they are both ecstatic about becoming parents.

“But for me, there’s not a single day that I don’t think about Daniel. I know that Daniel is still with me, in my heart and in my thoughts. And he always will be,” Morcombe told the AWW.

The Morcombe family invited the AWW into the family home to share the happy news -- as well as allowing the magazine to publish never-before-seen photos of Daniel and Bradley as twin babies and toddlers. Brad and Anna were married on the Sunshine Coast last year but they have been together since they started dating in high school.

Anna Morcombe told the AWW she doesn't know the sex of the baby but she has a 'strong feeling' he will be a boy.
