Turia Pitt: Pregnant - VIDEO

Turia and Michael found out only days before they were meant to head off to Nepal to start the very full on 12-day trek to Mount Everest Base Camp.

Turia took a pregnancy test because she had been feeling unusually tired and told '60 Minutes' her first reaction to it was: "Fuck.", revealing it to Michael by leaving the test in the bathroom while he was brushing his teeth:

She said: "I had a mouthful of toothpaste. I couldn’t really say much but I knew what was going on and I was just – I was like wow I can’t believe it!"

Turia reveals she was reluctant to cancel the trek, because it was for the burn survivor charity Interplast, but said that she had to make decisions for two people now.

"I wanted to do the walk, and then I thought about it and you know it’s not just myself I have to think about and Everest Base Camp there’s high altitude, low oxygen, not much sanitation and if something happens to you it’s really hard to get to a medical facility."

Turia is known as a bloody legend for not only surviving her burns ordeal, but for the inspirational work she has done extensive with Interplast since she recovered from severe burns she gained during a 100km marathon in the Kimberley region, when she and other runners became trapped in a grass fire.

Added Michael, saying they're 'stoked':

"We’ve been through something pretty traumatic and I mean we’re past that now – and you forget how hard that was so I reckon this will be more fun."

Adds Turia: "It makes me stoked I’m still here. Not every woman in the world gets to experience this and I get to with my best friend, my partner."

The couple's baby is due in December 2017.
