Lauren Brant has hit the halfway mark in her pregnancy and has given her Instagram followers an update on her health.

The 27-year-old uploaded a series of photos on her Instagram account detailing her pregnancy journey.

In one snapshot, she's pictured with her partner Barry Hall patiently waiting for a scan.

"Waiting for our baby scan," she captioned the image.

She's also shared photos with her niece, Willow, throughout her pregnancy, who has helped her get a feel for motherhood.

"HOW CUTE is my little niece Willow. Just a casual photo at home. Seriously if you don't feel like squeezing her there is something wrong with you. She just absolutely melts my heart," she wrote.

A week ago, the former Hi 5 star shared a pic of her growing baby bump and wrote about her experience with pregnancy.

"Today marks half way of my pregnancy journey and my little bump is coming along nicely (I can still see my feet, for now)," she revealed.

"Everyone says it goes so quickly, but I feel like it's taking forever, first three months of pure nausea - then 1.5 months of waiting to feel that little kick! But I have been enjoying the little changes that happen to my body everyday, for better or for worse!!!

"I have officially started developing that beautiful brown line down my tummy and I'm showing signs of a moustache).

"We have our big half way scan next week to check on little Bubs development and I can't wait to hear that little heartbeat and see our precious bundle (even if it kinda looks like an alien atm). Anyway, I love carrying our child and learning all about motherhood along the way. I am so ready for you Bubs xxx".

Supporting her throughout her pregnancy is her partner, AFL legend Barry Hall.

The pair revealed they were expecting their first baby last December.

"We fell madly in love and it happened really quite quickly," she shared with New Idea.

The couple found out in August, when, following a series of negative pregnancy tests, a blood test confirmed the news.

And Lauren, who was sat in the airport waiting to board a plane to see Barry in Melbourne, admits she Facetimed him there and then because she couldn’t wait.

Dad-to-be Barry admits they were at first worried about what the public would have to say.

“But in the end we just didn’t care,” he says. “We’re just us and we’re happy.”

But it wasn’t until a chance meeting at an AFL game in the Gold Coast more than a year later that they got together.

"I honestly believe that it's destiny," gushes Lauren.

“Barry would never be mean to me. He’s so beautiful, he’s like my protector… I feel he’s going to be the best dad.”
