Sharing a family photo on her Instagram on Christmas Day, Shonee simply captioned the post "VALLY" - presumably referring to the name she had given her newborn baby.
Then on New Years Eve, Shonee shared a carousel of images of herself with her newborn baby.
Fans were excited to see the reality television star begin this new chapter in her life, just like her many friends and fellow Survivor stars who jumped into the comments section when she first shared her happy news.
"YEEEEWWWWW," Survivor 'villain' and new dad Jordie Hansen wrote.
"FINALLY!!! I've been waiting too long for this announcement moment. Yay," said Brooke Jowett.
"This is gonna be one smokin' baby! Congrats you two!!" 2021 Brains vs Brawns winner Hayley Leake chimed in.
"No wayyyy! Congrats," fellow villain Simon Mee added.
Also sharing in their congratulatory messages were Shonee's Survivor besties Fenella McGowan who wrote that it was the "most exciting news ever" and 2023 Heroes vs Villains winner Liz Parnov.
Shonee first appeared on Champions vs Contenders in 2018 where she placed fourth.
She then returned to play in the 2020 All-Stars season where she placed seventh, before performing a third time in 2023's Heroes vs Villains where she finished the game in ninth place after being blindslided by fellow villain and 'ally' King George Mladenov.
So far, Shonee is the only Australian Survivor player to be brought back for three seasons.
The new mother was previously married to pro skateboarder Benny Fairfax whom she began dating in 2012.
In November 2021, Shonee divorced her husband citing "irreconcilable differences."
Not much is known about her new partner Matt, or when his relationship with Shonee commenced.
What we do know however is that he runs his own rendering business - Render X - based in Queensland.
