It started out as a sec­ond hon­ey­moon but ended up an even more joy­ous cel­e­bra­tion!

Wear­ing a heavy black leather jacket over her bright sum­mer frock did lit­tle to hide Bec He­witt’s grow­ing b baby bump when she stepped out in W Wim­ble­don in the mid­dle of a Lon­don h heat­wave last week. “It’s the hap­pi­est I’ve seen her in a long, long time,” shares an­other ten­nis W WAG, who says Bec hasn’t stopped s smil­ing since she ar­rived in Lon­don. ““She seems like a dif­fer­ent per­son, she’s b been laugh­ing a lot.” It’s a huge trans­for­ma­tion for the for­mer f Home And Away star, who last month m was seen fight­ing with hus­band Lley­ton L in the streets of Mel­bourne, spark­ing fears her roller­coaster re­la­tion­ship was again on the rocks. “I think Lley­ton knew he had to do some­thing spe­cial, and he’s pulled out all the stops to make sure Bec has the best fort­night ever. They’re stay­ing in the same ritzy house they’ve rented for years when in Lon­don, and she ab­so­lutely loves the shops in the city,” adds our source.

“He may not be play­ing sin­gles any more but, as a tour­na­ment win­ner, Lley­ton will for­ever have top-notch sta­tus and this gloss, of course, trans­fers to his part­ner. So Bec quite lit­er­ally gets treated like a queen. It’s pretty much a sec­ond hon­ey­moon.”

What the cou­ple didn’t ex­pect when they were plan­ning the in­cred­i­ble fam­ily hol­i­day is that Bec would break the news she’s been wait­ing years for – she’s ex­pect­ing a lit­tle brother or sis­ter for Mia, 12, Cruz, nine and Ava, seven.

“Bec’s been want­ing this baby for a long time, but for the past few years Lley­ton has shut her down when she’s raised it. He felt three was enough, and that an even big­ger

fam­ily would be too much pres­sure on both of them,” re­veals one of Bec’s girl­friends.

“But she’s never given up on the dream of a fourth baby – and Lley­ton does feel guilty that she’s found it so hard to set­tle down in Mel­bourne, where she still feels lonely and iso­lated be­cause her friends and fam­ily are all in Syd­ney.”

Bec, 34, is un­der­stood to have bro­ken the news to Lley­ton, 37, just be­fore they flew to Lon­don with the kids for their amaz­ing hol­i­day. Now he’s sur­prised her with just how sup­port­ive he’s been, show­er­ing her with gifts and pay­ing at­ten­tion to her when­ever his ten­nis com­mit­ments al­low.

“He seems to have come to terms with hav­ing an even big­ger fam­ily,” re­veals a ten­nis buddy, adding that Lley­ton is a great dad but has al­ways wor­ried he just doesn’t have enough time to be the best dad he can be.

“He has a very spe­cial bond with Cruz, and the girls adore him even if they spend most of their time with Bec. He also re­alises there’s never go­ing to be a bet­ter time than now. Their kids are at an age where they can help, and he re­ally wants Bec to be happy.”
