Matilda Brown has given birth to her first child with MKR’s Scott Gooding.

The 32-year-old actress – who is the daughter of Aussie actors Bryan Brown and Rachel Ward – welcomed a baby boy on Wednesday.

“Zan Neathway Gooding arrived earthside this morning at 9.57am. I’m in love,” she wrote on Instagram, announcing the news. 

Adding: “My vagina looks like a war zone. And labouring and birthing is the most intense thing I’ve ever experienced in my life. Worth every second to finally meet my son. 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. ❤️”

While dad Scott was excited to meet their new addition.

“Finally got to meet lil Zan this morning. @matilda.m.brown your resilience, power, strength, inner lion was a sight to behold. Now watching lil Zan and mum snooze with Tashi. Once were 3 now 4 ❤️❤️❤️❤️,” Scott told his Instagram followers.

Baby Zan is the first child for Matilda, and Scott’s second child. He’s also dad to Tashi, his son from a previous relationship.

Matilda is best known for starring alongside her father Bryan in the short film series Lessons from the Grave in 2014.

She’s also appeared in Rake and Offspring.

Scott, 43, launched a career as a personal trainer and chef after appearing on My Kitchen Rules in 2013. 

He opened his own restaurant, The Good Place, in Sydney’s Miranda last month.
