Celebrity chef Matt Golinski welcomes ‘miracle’ baby girl


Celebrity chef Matt Golinski has welcomed his second child with wife Erin Yarwood in a “Christmas miracle”, ten years after he tragically lost his wife and three children in a house fire.

Golinski, 49, took to Instagram to reveal he and Yarwood had welcomed a baby girl, named Tillie Rose, on Christmas Day.

“Welcome to the world Tillie Rose Golinski, our little Christmas miracle,” the former Ready Steady Cook star wrote.

Yarwood shared the news on Facebook with a precious photo of herself lying next to her newborn daughter, captioning the post: “Matt and I are over the moon to update you all on the happy (long awaited!) arrival of our newest and super precious family member.”

“Meet Tillie Rose. Our very beautiful and exciting Christmas present born on Christmas Day. Mum and Bub are doing great.”

She added: “Dad is in his beautiful love bubble. And we have one very excited, very natural and extremely smitten big sister. We are all just so in love.”

The couple also share four-year-old daughter Aluna Bennie, who was born via IVF.

Tillie Rose’s birth comes almost a decade to the day since Golinski lost his first wife Rachael and their three daughters, twins Sage and Willow, 12, and ten-year-old Starlia in a horrific Boxing Day house fire on the Sunshine Coast in 2011.

The celebrity chef was the only survivor of the blaze and was left with 40 per cent burns to his body.

Doctors kept him in a coma for over eight weeks and Golinski endured dozens of skin grafts and operations during his recovery.

Golinski met his now wife, Erin Yarwood, in hospital while she worked as an assistant to the centre’s physiotherapists.

The couple married in 2017 and welcomed their first child Aluna Bennie soon after.

Speaking to ABC about dealing with the grief of losing his family, Golinski admitted he would “never” get over it.

“Well you never actually get over it. Nobody gets over it. But you’ve got to get past it,” he said.

“I’ll miss my girls forever, but there’s nothing I can do about that, so all I can do is accept it.”

Golinski has previously gushed about Yarwood after meeting his second “great love” when he was at his lowest.

“A lot of people search their whole lives for love. I have been lucky enough to have two great loves. To love two wonderful, kind women,’ he told New Idea in 2017.
