Paula announced that she was expecting a baby in March by sharing a picture of herself in a wetsuit.

"We'll be moving from man-to-man to zone defence later on this year," she wrote at the time. "And I'm so glad the water is getting a little bit milder because this is the only wetsuit that has fit me since around week 9."
