Baby on the way for Matt Golinski and fiancé Erin Yarwood

CELEBRITY chef Matt Golinski and fiancé Erin Yarwood are expecting their first baby together. But not just expecting … they're actually due any day now!

Attending a culinary event in Bundaberg earlier this month, Matt told regional news paper News Mail he was excited about becoming a dad again after years of heartbreak following the tragic loss of his wife and daughters.

The publication revealed the star chef and fitness trainer fiancé Erin were expecting in just five weeks at the beginning of July, which means we could be seeing a baby announcement way before we actually hear any wedding bells ringing.

"The chef said he was excited about welcoming a new baby and wanted to be close by [in the Sunshine Coast] if the little bundle of joy was to arrive unexpectedly," News Mail reveals, following the QLD event.

In 2011, the nations hearts broke when Matt was the sole survivor in a catastrophic Boxing Day blaze, that claimed the lives of his wife Rachel and their three daughters, twins Sage and Willow, 12 and Starlia, 10.

The fire also destroyed the popular chef's Sunshine Coast hinterland home, and left him with burns to over 40 percent of his body.

Now, six years on, and still processing his grief of losing his beautiful family, Matt announced he was ready to begin a new chapter of his life, becoming engaged to Erin, 31, who was a rock for him during those tough years.

The couple first struck up a friendship while Matt was recovering from the horrific ordeal in hospital, and last week confirmed he proposed on top of the Sunshine Coast's Mount Cooroora in Pomona.

The couple revealed they aren't in a rush to marry, and are yet to set a date for their wedding.

"A lot of people search their whole lives for love. I have been lucky enough to have two great loves. To love two wonderful, kind women", he said.

Congratulations to the beautiful couple - we can't wait to see pictures of the family very soon.
