The 31-year-old jewellery designer, who met Matt on season five of The Bachelor in 2017, is clearly in love with daughter Marlie-Mae and the former Bachie. 

“These two,” Laura captioned her latest post, which she shared to her Instagram stories.

Matty looked a little tired but super happy as he’s pictured snuggling Marlie-Mae – whose name, the couple revealed when they announced her birth, was a nod to both their nanas. 


“Welcome to the world you divine little slice of human pudding. Marlie-Mae Rose Johnson (named after our Nana’s) you’re more than we could have ever hoped for,” Laura wrote next to a series of photos.

While Matt gushed that Laura “did an incredible job” and that becoming a dad was “better than he could have ever imagined” in a post to his Instagram followers. 


The couple welcomed their little girl after an earlier pregnancy last year ended in a heartbreaking miscarriage. 

Laura spoke candidly about her experience in a first-person article for Whimn, shortly after they announced they were expecting Marlie-Mae. 

She also opened up to The Daily Telegraph, confessing she worried there was “something wrong” after having her miscarriage. 

“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.

“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.
