Adriano Zumbo and Nelly Riggio’s bun has come out of the oven, and it’s a boy!

Adriano became popular for his crazy desserts on MasterChef, going on to star in his own TV show Zumbos Just Desserts alongside Rachel Koo and Gigi Falanga.

His world changed when he collided with former My Kitchen Rules contestant – now wife – Nelly, who applied for his Zumbo’s dessert catering empire in July 2016.

“I did most of the talking [in the job interview],” Nelly told exclusively New Idea in 2017. 

“He just sat and listened,” she laughed.

The ‘dessert king’ wed his ‘queen’ on May 6, 2022, in a romantic clifftop chapel.

“The weather just held out after looking like rain, and the sky opened up into blue and there was a rainbow,” smiled Adriano.

Fast forwarding to November 2023, the happy couple welcomed their little bundle of joy. 

Posting a black and white photo with no caption, Adriano and Nelly blacked out the baby’s name bad. Now fans can’t help but wonder what their son’s name will be. 

After doing some digging, it is possible they could name him after Adriano’s dad, Frank Joseph Zumbo, who sadly passed away three years ago.

Celebrity chefs flooded the comments with love for the new parents, including MasterChef judge George Calombaris commenting “Well done bro.”

Even current MasterChef judge Melissa Leong, writing, “Congratulations!!!”

More updates to come on the baby’s name.
