Luke added that his wife, now a new mum, was ‘doing so well’ and admitted the birth process was hectic.

‘We had a very “eventful” delivery day but it was all worth it,’ he continued.

The couple announced they were expecting back in August hot on the heels of their fairytale wedding held on June 3rd in Sydney’s picturesque Centennial Park.

Luke, who is best known for his role as Angelo Rosetta in the popular Channel Seven drama, shared the happy news and an image to Instagram on alongside sweet words on Raychel’s birthday.

In the picture, Luke looks every inch the doting father-to-be as he proudly stands by his wife, as he caresses her belly. 

Luke is beaming in the snap in a patterned shirt and navy trousers.

Meanwhile, Raychel is positively glowing in a stylish dress while wearing a ‘mommy to be’ sash. 

‘To my beautiful Bride! You are my sunshine, my best friend and the love of my life,’ he captioned the image.

‘You have taught me how to grow, how to love and how to live my best life. I would be nothing without you!’

A beaming Raychel was walked down the aisle by her new mother-in-law’s partner, John. 

Both she and Luke have sadly lost their fathers and her brothers were unable to travel from LA. 

Luke rocked a custom suit by Alex Goodman and looked thrilled, punching the air after saying, ‘I do’. 

It appears the blushing bride couldn’t wait to marry the TV veteran.  

Raychel was escorted down the aisle 40 minutes ahead of schedule, she told New Idea on Monday. 

‘It was truly an unforgettable moment,’ the giddy newlywed told the publication.

‘The whole setting was just so magical,’ she gushed. 

Luke was moved too, becoming emotional and swatting away his tears as he watched his bride walk down the aisle towards him. 

Following the gorgeous ceremony, the couple posed for photos with their brand new marriage certificate.
