DANIEL Morcombe's twin brother Bradley and wife Anna have announced they are having their first child.
The baby will be the first grandchild for Bruce and Denise Morcombe.
"We are both ecstatic about the prospect of becoming parents," Brad told Australian Women's Weekly.
"It's something we have dreamed about for a long time.
"But for me, there's not a single day that I don't think about Daniel. I know that Daniel is still with me, in my heart and in my thoughts. And he always will be."
The Weekly was invited into the Morcombe family home to celebrate with the extended family.
Daniel and Brad's mother Denise also allowed The Weekly to print some never- before-seen touching photos of her twins as babies and young boys.
Brad and Anna wed in a simple private ceremony on the Sunshine Coast last August, but the pair have known each other since attending high school together.
They don't know the sex of the child, but Anna has a strong feeling it is a boy.
"I couldn't think of anything more fitting after everything that everybody has been through," Anna says.
The magazine goes on sale on Thursday.
