Married At First Sight Australia stars Martha Kalifatidis and Michael Brunelli have announced the birth of their first child.

The couple, who met on the dramatic E4 reality series, revealed on Monday morning (27 February) that they had welcomed a son and announced his adorable name to fans.

Sharing the thrilling news on Instagram, Martha uploaded a photo of her newborn baby and wrote: "He's here, he's perfect."

The couple also confirmed they named their son Lucius Brunelli.

Commenting under Martha's post, new dad Michael clarified their baby's name was pronounced '"LOO-SHUS”, if you’re wondering.'

Martha and Michael's baby boy joins the group of very few MAFS babies who have come out of the reality series.

There's baby Harper, who series one stars Zoe and Alex had before they decided to split up, little Oliver who season six couple Jules and Cam share, and twins Levi and Tate, who were welcomed by season eight stars Bryce and Melissa.

Martha and Michael have been growing strong ever since they got together on the 2019 series of MAFS Australia.

Sparks flew between the makeup artist and primary school teacher almost instantly, with Michael remarking at their wedding ceremony that he had 'struck gold' with his new wife.

Martha and Michael were one of two couples from season six who stayed together after the show - the other being Jules and Cam who, as I previously mentioned, have also welcomed a little MAFS baby.

Ever since the cameras stopped rolling, Martha and Michael have documented every inch of their blossoming romance on social media.

Keeping her fans up to date over the course of her pregnancy, Martha revealed on Instagram that she had been suffering from Hyperemesis Gravidarum.

The condition is a medical term for extreme nausea and sickness during pregnancy, which affects three percent of people with pregnancy sickness.

Symptoms can include severe, rapid weight loss, prolonged nausea and vomiting, dehydration, and health and pregnancy complications if not treated properly.

Talking her fans through the illness last year, Martha shared: "It hasn't been this exciting, wonderful time for us. I don't want to sound like I'm complaining. We are so excited, we are so happy, it was a complete surprise.

"But at five weeks I was diagnosed with Hyperemesis Gravidarum.

"Which is severe chronic nausea and vomiting with no relief. It is 24-7. I literally didn't get out of bed for two months.

"We have been in and out of the emergency room and hospital," she added, before explaining she was put on 'life-changing' medication for the condition.
