MAFS golden couple Jules Robinson and Cam Merchant announced the safe arrival of their son over the weekend.
And now, the proud new mum has shared a stunning first photo with her newborn son Oliver Chase Merchant.
Taking to Instagram on Sunday, the 37-year-old former Married At First Sight contestant shared a heartwarming photo of herself in hospital cradling baby Oliver.
Sitting on her hospital bed cross-legged, she looks lovingly at her sleeping newborn in her arms with a sign in front that reads: “Welcome to the world baby cub Oliver Chase Merchant.”
And to make matters even cuter, Jules is also wearing a T-shirt with the words “Mama Lioness” emblazoned across it.
“Hear me roar 🦁#mamalionessandhercub #proudmumma #newborn,” the proud new mum captioned her post.
Jules’ friends and followers couldn’t help but coo over the adorable photo, with many commenting on Oliver’s impressive head of hair.
“So so cool! And the world opens up from here 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼 congrats hon xxx,” fitness queen Michelle Bridges posted beneath.
“Awe this photo has me feeling all the feels! I’m just so happy for you babe. I have emotional/ hormonal tears of joy and love!!” Chezzi Denyer, who is pregnant with her third child, wrote.
Jules and Cam’s MAFS co-star and friend Cyrell Paule even joked: “He got mums thick hair instead of daddy’s … Thank god,” to which Jules replied: “hahah I need some some of his to thicken mine up.”
New dad Cam has also shared a heartwarming post since Oliver’s arrival, remarking that he’s “so thankful” to welcome his firstborn.
“Hold on tight little one.. This thing called life is an amazing ride,” Cam, 36, wrote.
“So thankful to welcome a healthy & gorgeous little Oliver Chase Merchant into our lives. What an incredible experience & one that I will never forget.”
He added: “Mum was amazing throughout & doing well & I’m not sure I can describe the love I have & so thankful to hold your little hand throughout.”
