Ryan Gallagher and Emily Seebohm have welcomed their first child together

The reality TV power couple have been engaged since December 2022.

Married At First Sight’s Ryan Gallagher has announced that he and his fiancée, Olympic swimmer Emily Seebohm, have welcomed their first child together.

The comedian and OnlyFans creator quietly updated his public Facebook profile picture on September 13 to a photo of himself and Emily with their newborn son.

The snap shows the couple cuddled up together on a hospital bed with their child fast asleep in his father’s arms.

While Ryan didn’t add a caption to the social media post, his friends quickly flooded the comments with congratulatory messages.

“That’s so awesome,” journalist Natasha Exelby replied, while Myf Warhurst added, “Omg congrats you lot”.


“Awww the best!! Huge congrats!! You’re going to be an amazing dad!! Enjoy this special time,” Endemol Shine Australia’s Director of Content Tara McWilliams shared.

One person also appeared to give away the name of Ryan and Emily’s son, writing: “Hope everything is going well and Em and Sampson are both going okay. Sending love and hugs to you all.”

Ryan and Emily got engaged in December last year, just four months after they met filming The Challenge Australia, but didn’t publicly share the news until March.

They then announced their pregnancy in July with a sweet video on social media alongside the caption: “We’ve had a little bump in the road.”


The three-time Olympic gold medallist recently opened up about her pregnancy at the annual GlamouRossi Long Lunch in Brisbane, according to The Courier Mail.

“If you ask me, it's been awful. I just call myself Shrek these days,” she said, before joking about her swollen feet.

Emily also gave some minor details about the baby's name, sharing that she and Ryan “wanted something that was going to be unique”.

“Me and Ryan are still under the impression that maybe when we see the baby it’d be different. So we don’t really want to say [the name] yet,” she added.
