MAFS Australia star Martha Kalifatidis gives birth to baby boy and reveals gorgeous name

MAFS Australia star Martha Kalifatidis has welcomed her newborn baby boy into the world with fiancé Michael Brunelli.

"Lucius Brunelli. He’s here, he’s perfect," Martha, 34, wrote on Instagram, alongside a snap of their baby boy sleeping away while wrapped up in a blanket.

In the comments section, Michael, 32, quickly clarified how to pronounce their newborn's name as he wrote underneath: ''LOO-SHUS' if you're wondering."

"Yes hair!!! I'm gonna SQUISH, CONGRATULATIONS BOTH OF YOU!!!!" Kayla Itsines said, as she gushed over their new addition.

Chloe Szep wrote: "Oooooo my gosh hi hunni," while Nadia Bartel added: "Awww little man is here!! biggest congrats."

Fans also shared their joy for the couple, with one saying: "Ohhh well done Mumma!!! You did it! Hope you’re recovering okay. He is absolute perfection."

Another added: "Still crying over how perfect he is. Lucius, you are so loved."

"Congratulations. I hope you’re all doing well as a beautiful family of 3," one shared.

The name Lucius came as a surprise to many after fans believed Martha previously hinted at their son's name before his birth.

Martha teased he would have a traditional Italian name when she shared a page from a photo album that she received at her baby shower.

Martha's mother Mary had written in the book: "Dearest, Giuseppe, you are my first grandchild."

Martha and Michael announced they would be expecting their first child back in October last year.

Their announcement came after fans noticed Martha's absence from social media with her having excessive nausea and vomiting.

The star then struggled with hyperemesis gravidarum, which at times left her bedridden for weeks on end.

Michael opened up on Martha's struggles, with him saying it "almost destroyed" them as a couple.

He said: "Not to say we aren't eternally grateful to have been able to become pregnant, but this experience almost destroyed us, individually."

Michael continued: "She was vomiting, refused to eat, couldn't tolerate drinking water, was nauseous 24 hours a day and unable to get out of bed."
