Gogglebox: Sarah Marie's emotional message to Matty on his birthday

The Goggleboxer will be celebrating a very different way this year!

It's been a competely new experience for Matty as he welcomed his first child, Malik into the world with wife, Sarah Marie in November last year. 

"Since Malik's been born, it's been from not wanting him out because he hadn't had his vaccinations yet, then straight into bushfires then into flooding and then we hit the Coronavirus. It's been pretty bloody biblical since he's been born," Matty explains to LifeStyle.

"But the silver lining for us is that he doesn't know what Coronavirus is. All he knows is that he gets to see his parents every single day and hang out with them and be happy.

"It's actually been really nice for me to be at home with him a lot more than I would have otherwise."

And that's just how the new-dad will be celebrating his 33rd birthday. 

His wife, Sarah Marie released a beautiful photo of the pair from their maternity shoot before Malik was born, with a touching message to her husband. 

"The happiest of birthdays to you my handsome husband and big papa.

"Today instead of heading out to enjoy one of your infamous big and crazy birthday bash’s, you will be indoors enjoying your first birthday as a father.

"This year instead of sipping on tequila shots, you’re sniffing in baby farts but I know you wouldn’t have it any other way.

"Till this day you are one of the most amazing people I have ever met. Malik, Bane and I are so blessed to have you by our side.

"May the Lord bless you and keep you safe. I love you."

His wife's beautiful message hit home with Matty, with the Goggleboxer replying, "Thank you so much baby. You’re right, I wouldn’t want it any other way. I love you."

The makeup artist even organised an amazing cake for her sport-loving husband - an homage to his favourite UK soccer team, Arsenal. 

Sarah Marie's gorgeous birthday message has also resonated with thousands of people, including a few familiar names. 

"Happy birthday matty love you x," Isabelle Silbery posted.

"Happy birthday Matty," Lee and Keith added, while Kate Dalton also had a message to share: "Happy ISO Birthday! Keep living the dream and being well. Have a good one x."

We all wish Matty a very happy birthday and hope that this one is extra special.
