MATT Golinski and his fiancée Erin Yarwood have welcomed their first child together.

In a statement issued to the Daily, the proud parents shared the good news.

"Erin and Matt have welcomed a healthy 8 pound, 9 ounce baby girl into the world on Wednesday 16 August at 1.15pm," the statement read. 

"Matt and Erin thank everyone for their support and well wishes and ask for privacy as they get to know their little bundle of pure joy."

The baby is yet to be named.

The good news comes after the recent announcement of the celebrity chef's engagement to his fiancée Erin Yarwood, six years after the tragic Tewantin house fire that claimed the life of his wife and three children on Boxing Day in 2011.

Matt Golinski told regional newspaper News Mail in July that he was excited about becoming a dad again after years of heartbreak following the tragic loss of his wife and daughters.

The couple first struck up a friendship while Matt was recovering from the horrific ordeal in hospital, and proposed to the fitness trainer on top 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," Mr Golinski said in July.

"I have been lucky enough to have two great loves. To love two wonderful, kind women."
