Burns survivor Turia Pitt gives birth to baby boy.

The inspiring motivational speaker made the announcement in her newsletter this morning.

“Michael and I want to introduce you to someone,” the 30-year-old wrote.

“Meet Hakavai Hoskin.

“We’ll be in this little newborn bubble for a few weeks but we wanted to pop our heads out for a moment to share the news directly with you.

“We are totally in love, and just so stoked.”

The word Hakavai, is the Shona word for “will be”. Shona is the language most commonly spoken in Zimbabwe.

A picture of the newborn shows him swaddled in a blanket bearing his surname Hoskin.

Just two days ago, Pitt shared her excitement over her pregnancy by posting a picture of her fiance Michael Hoskin cradling her baby bump on social media.

“We’re frothing to meet you Baby Hoskin!” she wrote on Instagram.

Pitt found out she was pregnant just three days before she was about to lead a Mount Everest trek, forcing her to pull out of the hike.

She revealed the news to her fiance by leaving a positive pregnancy test for him to see while he brushed his teeth.

“We’re stoked we couldn’t be happier,” Mr Hoskin said at the time.

“Turia told me she’s the happiest she’s ever been.”

Pitt suffered 65 per cent burns to her body when she was trapped by a bushfire during the Kimberley ultra marathon in 2011.

“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,” she said.
