Gogglebox: How baby Malik became this season’s biggest star

Baby Malik may only be a few months old, but he's already proving to be one of the most popular Goggleboxers. 

This series Gogglebox has been praised for giving a sense of normality as we sit down on the couch to watch the families laugh and cry their way through the week's TV.

And now, new dad and Goggleboxer Matty reveals that it's his adorable five-month-old son who has been flooded with fan mail!

The father-of-one revealed, "I get more messages about Malik bringing joy to people than I can actually get through. 

"They are so beautiful and one day I look forward to telling Malik how he did his part during Covid-19."

Some of the messages comes from fans who are really struggling in life.

"I just have to say, and I'm not using my cancer as a trump card, but I'm recovering from an 8hr operation at the moment and your little man honestly just brings the biggest smile to my face at this really hard time!" one person wrote.

"You guys are a beautiful family to watch grow and I feel so privileged to see that little face!"

"Makes my world a little brighter on hard day like today. Thank you!!!"

Malik was a surprise addition to the latest season, as he became the first baby ast member on Gogglebox Australia.

As the child of much-loved Goggleboxers, Matty and Sarah Marie, the littlest Fahd has been capturing hearts around the country with his sweet nature and gorgeous little smile.

Speaking with LifeStyle exclusively, Matty and Sarah Marie reveal some of the special moments they've witnessed in just the last few weeks. 

"Every day he does something new," Sarah Marie says. "He turned over on his stomach for the first time recently, and he's been sitting on his swing where he suddenly reaches to the mobile that hangs over the top, grabs it and pulls it towards him.

"He has never done that before, he's getting so strong!

"It's just amazing. He smiles every morning and he looks like a little boy now rather than just a baby!

"I'm glad I'm with him every day otherwise I'd miss all these things. It's so beautiful."

It seems that the Goggleboxers as a group have been making a difference to Australians, as we all battle through Coronavirus.

When Lee shared her struggle to cope through isolation, a stranger soon after left a bottle of wine on her doorstep to let her know she was not alone. 

It is these acts of kindness and messages of togetherness that make us stronger, and we hope to see our favourite Goggleboxers again very soon.
