Teresa Palmer is expecting her fourth child.

The 'A Discovery of Witches' actress celebrated her 35th birthday on Friday (26.02.21), and on the same day, she took to Instagram to reveal the "best birthday present" she received this year is the news she will become a mother for the fourth time.

Posting a picture of herself cuddling her three kids - Bodhi, seven, Forest, four, and Poet, 22 months, whom she has with her husband Mark Webber - with her baby bump on show, she wrote: "35 years ago right around now I was born in sunny Adelaide. Today I am thinking of my mothers transition to motherhood and feel grateful to her for all she has done for me. I celebrate her, a healthy full life & the miracle of birth. Reflecting on this surrounded by my darling babies, including our newest little love @markwebber #wehavesomanychildren #thebestkindofbirthdaypresent (sic)"

And in a second post, Teresa thanked her fans for their love and support following the happy news.

She wrote: "Firstly thank you all for the baby and birthday love!! You're all so thoughtful & loving and I've read ALL your comments (sic)"

 

Meanwhile, the 'Warm Bodies' actress recently explained how motherhood "liberated" her after a battle with orthorexia, which is described as an obsession with "proper or 'healthful' eating".

She said: "My body just blossomed and I had this big belly and I could feel life within me, and it was just incredible seeing what my body could do. I was getting stretch marks on my boobs and cellulite all over my bum and the backs of my thighs.

"I was finally liberated from these judgments that I had surrounding my body, which I realized had existed since I was ... a teenager. Since being a mum, I've embraced it all. The lumps and the bumps and the stretch marks... it's a map of my journey of bringing my babies into the world."
