My Kitchen Rules star Scott Gooding and Australian actress Matilda Brown have welcomed a beautiful baby boy.

Taking to Instagram on Wednesday, Matilda – who is the daughter of veteran Australian actors Bryan Brown and Rachel Ward – shared a sweet video of her and newborn son Zan.

“Hey guys. Zan Neathway Gooding arrived earth side this morning at 9.57am. I’m in love,” she wrote on her social media account.

The actress explained that “labouring and birthing is the most intense thing I’ve ever experienced in my life’, however, “worth every second to finally meet my son”.

Also giving her partner some credit, she added, “Scott was amazing, never left my side, and is totally besotted.”

“Once we get ourselves sorted I’ll tell you all about the birth. Thanks so much for all the love and rooting for us. Love u all (sic).”

This is the couple’s first child together, though Scott already has a 10-year-old son from a previous relationship.

Earlier this month the 2013 MKR star spoke ahead of the baby’s arrival.

“I am a little bit nervous because there has been so much time between my first and this one, I kind of worry that I've forgotten it all,” he told The Daily Telegraph.

“But I have no doubt that once he is here it will all fall into place and it will be second nature. I am very excited. I want to meet him and see his little face.”
