Taking to Instagram, the 31-year-old shared a photo of Max wearing a cute panda romper, along with the caption: ‘And just like that two became three!

The happy news comes after the 31-year-old revealed in January he was expecting his first child with Rebecca.
‘As soon as I met her [Bec] there was this ridiculous feeling that came over me,’ Rebecca and Jono met and fell in love after he appeared on Married At First Sight

At the time, Jono, who previously admitted to never believing in ‘love at first sight’, said he knew Rebecca was the one when he first laid eyes on her.
He told WHO magazine when Bec turned up to his doorstep for their first date, ‘he knew she was the one’.
The pair, who originally met on a night out nine years ago, reconnected on social media last March, and have been dating since May last year.
Jono rose to fame after he was controversially paired with Clare Verrall on MAFS in 2016, which made headlines after their nasty split.
