Congratulations are in order for former Love Island Australia and The Block star Luke Packham who has welcomed his first baby with his fiancée, Olivia.
The serial reality personality shared the exciting news to his Instagram story on March 29, revealing that the couple has introduced a baby girl into their lives.
Alongside a photo of their new arrival’s tiny hand, Luke welcomed Mia Jessica Packham into the world.
“Our little Mia Jessica Packham was born yesterday! She is healthy and doing great,” the 27-year-old penned. “We love her so very much! I will be uploading some photos of her in the near future.”
The “official” photos of baby Mia came one week following her birth, with Luke sharing a carousel of pics on Instagram of their bundle of joy.
“1 week with our gorgeous little girl,” he penned. “Our hearts are so full with you in this world. I never could have imagined you being so perfect, We love you so very much!”
The photos included a gorgeous photo of Mia holding a name placard, a number of snaps of Luke living his best life as a new dad, plus a gorgeous family photo of the trio at the beach.
The Block 2021 alum first revealed he and Olivia were expecting in late 2021 with an awkward AF photoshoot in Woman’s Day magazine… alongside his twin brother.
Luke Packham’s Odd AF Baby Announcement
The couple posed for stunning photos which were featured in the publication. However, some of the photos were rather ~rAnDoM~ because there was a surprise appearance from Luke’s twin brother Josh!
We understand that twins are a package deal, but c’mon, Josh! Couldn’t you have just let him do this one on his own?
TBH, Josh looked out of place in the photoshoot, he almost appeared as if he’d been photoshopped in!
However, points to him for already having his Wiggles hands down pat — that’s a skill that’s definitely going to come in handy (pun intended) now that bub has arrived!
Swipe to see the family affair!
Chatting to Woman’s Day, Luke said he and Olivia hadn’t planned on having a baby.
“It wasn’t planned but we always said, ‘If it happens, it happens,’ and that’s how we’ve approached the situation, but we were both stoked when we found out,” the Love Island 2019 star said.
Soon-to-be Uncle Josh was also interviewed for the story and told the magazine he was thrilled about his brother’s happy news.
“I’m going to spoil her! I don’t think I’ll be a dad any time soon, so it’ll be a bit like trial and error for me.”
“I’m really looking forward to it,” he said.
How Long Have Luke Packham and Olivia Been Together?
Luke revealed he was dating Olivia in December 2019, sharing a photo of the pair kissing on his Instagram.
“If your God is money, you will always be poor. But if your God is love, you will always be rich,” he captioned the post.
Fans were shocked by the announcement which came just three weeks after Luke split from his Love Island Australia co-star, Cassie Lansdell.
Less than a year later, Luke announced his engagement to Olivia during a diving expedition in Byron Bay.
“Took this girl diving today and popped the question at the bottom of the ocean! Was a moment I will remember forever,” he wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of the pair.
In the pic, Olivia proudly showed off her new diamond ring, while also holding a laminated piece of paper that read: “OLIVIA JESSICA KISS you make me the happiest man. WILL YOU MARRY ME?”
After becoming engaged in October 2020, the pair revealed they were originally planning to tie the knot in late 2021.
“We were looking at a few wedding venues, but then the pandemic and The Block happened, so we put it on hold, and shortly after that Olivia was pregnant!” Luke explained.
Congrats to the happy couple – and Uncle Josh – on the happy news!
