Unsurprisingly, fans were quick to congratulate the couple, who have been together since 2010, taking to Instagram to leave their comments. Rumours had been swirling since the turn of the year that Rosie was expecting for some time, but she had stayed tight-lipped until now.
The Mad Max star has regularly been pictured in recent months covering her stomach and her latest bikini snap indicates she's reasonably far along with her pregnancy.
The stir around the Victoria's Secret model kicked off earlier this year when she posted a shot of herself clad in a baggy poncho for her 6.7 million followers on Instagram.
She captioned the post, 'Here's to fresh starts and exciting prospects for the new year. Wishing everyone a happy and healthy 2017.'
Shortly thereafter, sources told the Daily Mail that the blonde beauty is 'indeed pregnant and ... has been calling in clothes to suit her changing figure.'
Rosie, who's been seen in films such as Transformers: Dark of the Moon and Mad Max: Fury Road, has opened up in the past on her thoughts about starting a family with her 49-year-old actor beau.
Speaking to The EDIT in 2015, Rosie said, 'Having a family is something I think about for sure, and whether I'd live here in America or in England. But it's not always as simple as that.'
