Former Bachelor Matthew 'Matty J' Johnson welcomed his first child, daughter Marlie-Mae, with fiancée Laura Byrne in June. 

And on his very first Father's Day this Sunday, Matty J claimed that becoming a father has been a dream come true.

Doting mother Laura also praised her partner and joked that he 'smashed his three month fatherhood probation'.

Fans were treated to two cute snaps of Matty J and little Marlie on Instagram, with Laura sharing a photo of her husband-to-be cradling their daughter. 

Playfully praising Matty over his parenting duties, Laura wrote alongside her post: 'Happy Father’s Day to this magnificent fella.

'I am happy to report that you smashed your three month probation period with flying colours. You’re stuck with us! Suck it.'

Adorable: Matty, meanwhile, marked the moment for himself over on his own page, where he treated his followers to a very sweet snap of the father and daughter duo in beanie hats
