A positively beaming Laura took to Instagram to announce the news on June 20.
“Welcome to the world you divine little slice of human pudding” she wrote next to a series of photos, “Marlie-Mae Rose Johnson (named after our Nana’s) you’re more than we could have ever hoped for.''
Matty J also declared his excitement via Instagram, saying the past 24 hours were surreal.
“Still letting the last 24hrs sink in.. they’ve been the most rewarding, loving and emotional I’ve ever experienced. @ladyandacaty you did the most incredible job bringing our little girl Marlie-Mae Rose Johnson into the world. Becoming a Dad was better than I ever could have imagined.”
The pair announced they were expecting in late 2018 after suffering a devastating miscarriage earlier that year.
“We’d heard so many stories about how it had been so difficult for some people and obviously we thought it was going to be difficult for me because of what had already happened,” Laura told The Telegraph.
“When you’ve had a miscarriage, you worry if there is something wrong with you.
“It is not something that people really talk about but actually one in four pregnancies end that way, you just don’t hear about it.”
