The Sydney woman who lost her three children after they were struck by a drunk driver has announced that she is pregnant.

Leila Abdallah shared the news on Instagram, posting a sweet photo of herself and her husband Danny Abdallah cradling her growing tummy.

“God blessed us with a gift from above,” she captioned the post.

The couple suffered the heartbreaking loss of their three children, Antony, 13, Angelina, 12, and Sienna, eight, as well as their niece, when a drunk driver struck the group of seven children as they walked to buy ice cream in Oatlands, in north-west Sydney.

The families have been in an ongoing fight with Oatlands Golf Club, where the incident occurred, to have a permanent memorial installed near where the children died.

So far, the plan, which was submitted by Parramatta Council on the families’ behalf, has been rejected because of its size.

Samuel Davidson, the driver responsible for the deaths, has since apologised to the families and faced court.

Mr Davidson was drunk while driving the vehicle, and a report made after the incident found he had been travelling up to 133 km/h in the 50 km/h zone.

The vehicle was moving at about 111 km/h at the time of impact.

He was convicted on four counts of manslaughter, and his punishment is yet to be decided on by the court.
