Neighbours star Matt Wilson has officially welcomed his second child with his wife Jessica, the couple announced on Instagram.

Matt and Jessica posted a joint post on Instagram with a series of black and white photos of their new baby as well as several photos of the birthing process, which was done in a pool. There was also a short video of the new baby breathing.

"Another member added to our gang 💙 25.02.2023," the couple wrote in a post.

The post was welcomed with plenty of congratulatory comments from fans and friends, including fellow Neighbours actor Charlotte Chimes. Charlotte wrote: "Congratulations you beautiful family."

The news comes after the couple announced that they were expecting their second child in August last year. At the time, Matt posted a photo of an ultrasound of their baby writing: "A new addition to our retirement package. Boy or girl? @jessicaleewilson1."

While the sex of this second baby has not yet been revealed, this is another big step for Matt and Jessica, who married in a secret ceremony in 2019 and welcomed their first child together in 2021.

At the time, the official Neighbours account posted their congratulations to the couple, tweeting "A huge congrats to our very own @MattyWilson88 and his lovely wife Jess on the arrival of their little one!"

Matt plays Aaron Brennan in Neighbours, who featured in a historical moment on the soap when he married Takaya Honda's David Tanaka. That was the first same-sex marriage to appear on Australian TV.

Neighbours returns in the second half of 2023 with new episodes streaming free on Amazon Freevee in the UK and US. Network 10 will retain first-run rights in Australia for the new series.
