Ellidy Pullin Shares “Bittersweet” Pregnancy News A Year After Chumpy’s Death

Model and podcaster Ellidy Pullin has announced she’s pregnant almost one year after losing her partner, snowboarding champion, Alex “Chumpy” Pullin, in a tragic diving accident.

In a post shared with her 60,000 followers on Instagram, Ellidy announced her news with a series of beautiful photos taken in a field, the sun shining behind her and yes, a visible pregnant belly.

“Bubba Chump coming this October,” she captioned one of the pics.

“I have been dreaming of you for years little one. With a heart wrenching plot twist in the middle, I am honoured to finally welcome a piece of the phenomenon that is Chumpy back into this world!”

She adds that she had been hoping to be pregnant when Chumpy passed away in July 2020:

“When my love had his accident, we all held onto hope that I’d be pregnant that month. We’d been trying for a baby. IVF was on our cards but it wasn’t something I ever imagined I’d be tackling on my own. Bittersweet like none other, I’ve never been more certain or excited about anything in my entire life.”
