Two-time car crash survivor Sophie Delezio shares sweet update


Sophie Delezio has shared a sweet update about the state of her growing family.

The two-time car crash survivor announced earlier this month that she and her husband Joseph Salerno were expecting their first child.

She recently took to Instagram wearing a black jumpsuit that hugged her baby bump, standing to the side and cradling her belly.

“I had a dream. I got everything I wanted,” she had written over the top of the clip.

Sophie is 17 weeks along, with her unborn child expected to be born in September 2024.

“What an incredible journey it has been so far! I’ve been so fortunate to not be too ill and I have had so many beautiful moments to just enjoy the growth of our little bundle,” she said.

“I love everything that pregnancy has done for me and to me. I cannot believe we are almost halfway!

“I can’t wait to keep growing you little one, but more than anything, I can’t wait to meet you.”

Fans who have watched Sophie’s journey since the first horror accident that saw a car plunge through her childcare centre in 2003, leaving the then toddler with burns to 85 per cent of her

body, shared an outpouring of love at the update.

“Well ain’t this the best thing I’ve seen in bloody ages,” one person said.

Another added: “This honestly brings happy tears to my eyes. I’m so excited for you, your partner and family this little ray of sunshine is going to bring SO much joy to your lives and your going to be the most amaaazing mumma.

“️We all cant wait until your tiny love arrives but until then grow little baby grow.”

“Enjoy every moment. You look so beautiful and you deserve everything you want. Keep dreaming lovely lady,” another said.

Australians have been drawn to Sophie’s story since her first accident in 2003. But, unfortunately, her heartache didn’t stop there.

In 2006, she was tragically struck again by a car near her home, leaving her suffering from a brain injury and heart attack as a result of the crash.

In 2023, she became engaged to childhood friend Joseph.
