Pregnant heiress throws baby shower after splitting from Parramatta Eels star Blake Ferguson

A pregnant heiress has thrown a lavish baby shower complete with a toy Mercedes and giant cake after splitting with her NRL star fiance. 

Dominique Moraitis, the granddaughter of Morco Fresh fruit and vegetable patriarch and multimillionaire Nick Moraitis, broke up with Parramatta Eels star Blake Ferguson, 30, late last year after a five-month engagement. 

Ms Moraitis announced she was pregnant in November by sharing a snap of her sonogram, which she declared to be her ‘biggest blessing’.

The mum-to-be marked the occasion by throwing a baby shower with family and friends on Saturday.

She shared pictures of a white cake, floral arrangements and a toy Mercedes with the number plate 740 from the event. 

‘A day for my mini. Blessed with the best,’ Ms Moraitis wrote alongside the pictures.

Ms Moraitis wore a long green dress with a tie around her baby bump and matched the look with brown sandals. 

She was pictured at the baby shower surrounded by friends who gleefully touched her growing belly. 

‘We can’t wait to meet you baby,’ one of her friends wrote on Instagram.

Ms Moraitis and Ferguson became an item in January 2019, going public at the Dally M Awards in October of that year.

The bombshell news of the shock separation was kept secret although rumours started circulating when pictures of Ferguson disappeared from Ms Moraitis’s Instagram page late last year. 

Ferguson, who converted to Islam in 2013, also has two children, Harlo and London, with his former partner Bianca Menniti. 

The game’s best winger has taken refuge at controversial boxer Anthony Mundine’s home to recover from the shock wedding cancellation.

Mundine is Ferguson’s cousin and mentor. 

‘He is family so I will always be there for him. I am here to support and guide him in any way I can. I am helping him get to a good space,’ Mundine told the publication.

‘He is doing okay.’

The indigenous star winger has lived with Mundine periodically since he was sacked by the Raiders in 2013.

Mundine has encouraged him to stay focused on his football and warned against Ferguson being led astray by the wrong crowd. 

The star has had a troubled past, flecked with addiction and controversy. 

In 2017 Ferguson opened up about the gambling problem that had threatened to ruin his career and his life.

Ferguson, then playing for the Sydney Roosters, checked himself into a rehabilitation centre attempting to overcome the betting addiction that cost him thousands of dollars. 

In June 2014, Ferguson was banned from pubs, clubs and bottle shops by a judge at an appeal hearing in Sydney. 

The winger had been appealing against a conviction for a 2013 indecent assault charge after he groped a woman’s crotch while at Cronulla’s 2230 nightclub.

The judge upheld his guilt but set aside his conviction on the provision that he stay away from alcohol outlets and seek counselling for alcohol abuse.
