Gogglebox Australia: Sarah Marie and Matty Fahd reveal exciting news about baby Malik!

This is surprising!

There's no doubt about it, first-time parents and Goggleboxers Sarah Marie and Matty Fahd are rightfully besotted with their little boy, baby Malik.

And it appears he's also a fan of them - especially since his first words are inspired by his parents.

"It was mum... it was mama for a while, and then he started saying papa," Sarah tells LifeStyle about her son's first words.

"Then he said papa-mama, and Matt just keeps saying it's papa because he's his dad!"

Meanwhile, Matty has another idea. 

"I think it's papa, I asked him to say papa and I swear that's what he keeps saying, "he  jokes.

Despite the coronavirus pandemic, Malik's parents, both 33, have been stoked to have some down-time as a family - particularly as Matty has been working from home.

"He's my desk buddy, I'll have a coffee with him when I take a break," Matty adds.

And the bond between the family has been so special - it has given Matty the opportunity to witness his sons big milestones.

Matty was there when Malik reached 7 months and discovered how to move around!

Taking to his Instagram stories, Matty shared a series of videos which showed the little one crawling for the first time.

"Crawl to me, c’mon you can do it!” the proud dad said.

An excited Malik then popped his head back and chuckled.

"I didn’t say dial a smile, this is serious business. Less laughing, more crawling!” Matty said.

And shortly after the adorable boy made his way across the loungeroom floor on all fours. 

But much to the surprise of his parents, Malik also decided to reach another milestone - managing to stand up on his own, too!

“That escalated quickly!” Matty captioned the footage of his son reaching onto the couch to stand on his feet.

And getting to see his son grow up before his eyes has proven to be a treat for the dad.

“Matty always posts snaps of Malik on his Insta story around lunch time. He says things like, oh he’s popping in for a coffee break,” his wife Sarah Marie tells LifeStyle.

“Matty loves it. You know, he's been able to see a lot of Malik's firsts. Usually I’ll send a photo or tell him, but now he’s actually been physically here for the first moments.”

He's too precious!
