Bachelor couple Matty Johnson and Laura Byrne have welcomed their very own little ray of sunshine into the world.

They announced the news via Instagram, gushing about their new little love. “Welcome to the world you divine little slice of human pudding. Marlie-Mae Rose Johnson (named after our Nana’s) you’re more than we could have ever hoped for,” Laura sweetly captioned a series of snaps.

Matty also shared touching photos on his Instagram account, saying he’s still letting the last 24 hours sink in. “They’ve been the most rewarding, loving and emotional I’ve ever experienced. @ladyandacat you did the most incredible job bringing our little girl Marlie-Mae Rose Johnson into the world. Becoming a Dad was better than I ever could have imagined,” Matty wrote.

The couple, who met on the 2017 series of the reality show, didn’t find out the gender of their first bub, and revealed their pregnancy in December last year. The pair suffered a miscarriage earlier in 2018, when Laura was seven weeks pregnant. They discovered not long after, that they were once again pregnant.
