Married At First Sight star gives birth to first child and announces sweet name

Charlene Perera has welcomed her first child into the world with her fiancé Jonathan Byrnes.

The former Married At First Sight star, 37, announced the arrival of their son on social media on Tuesday, revealing they have named him Austin Mahinda Perera-Byrnes.

The doting mum glowed as shared a series of adorable snaps on Instagram, including the moment she first held her son.

She penned: “Austin Mahinda Perera-Byrnes. Born 20/9/22. Weight 3.7kg. Just when we thought we couldn’t know more love here you are. Our hearts are full.”

Her sweet images captured the tot neatly wrapped in a multicoloured swaddle blanket while fast asleep. Charlene also posted several pictures of her and Jonathan inside the theatre room beaming with joy while wearing scrubs.


In another tender moment, Jonathan can be seen holding his newborn as he smiled at the camera. Austin even managed to open one eye for the happy occasion.

Charlene announced they were expecting their first child in April this year by posting a photo of her ultrasound on Instagram.

She jokingly captioned it: “Definitely not just bloating! We are both beyond grateful and excited to bring baby Perera-Byrnes into our world end of September.”

This sparked a heap of congratulatory messages and now they have become parents, her followers have once again flooded the comment section with kind remarks.


Celeb pal Sarah Roza wrote: “Ahhh Austin is simply gorgeous! Congratulations once again… I’m so happy for you @thisischarlenep & @jonathan.byrnes PS: I’m loving all these new extra pictures here too on Instagram btw

Season five MAFS star Melissa said: “Oh wow congratulations to you both. What a beautiful baby boy. Welcome to the world Austin. Enjoy every moment guys.”

Clare Verrall gushed: “He & I have the same birthday so he is obviously going to be a legend.”

Meanwhile, Gabrielle Bartlett commented: “Ahhhh he’s just perfect!!!! Beautiful name too! Welcome to Mums Club! Enjoy your little miracle xxxx.”


One friend appeared to put themselves forward as a Godparent.

“Dear lord, you didn’t tell me about this. Can I be the godfather?” begged former MAFS contestant Nasser Sultan.

In September last year, Charlene stunned her fans when she announced she and Jonathan were engaged to be married by sporting a diamond engagement ring.

Charlene told her followers that Jonathan had initially proposed two months prior with the caption: “Then in July, this special thing happened… My very clever Mr. Byrnes.”
