When her newborn son was placed gently on her chest for a first cuddle, former The Block contestant Bec Douros was overcome with an emotion she’d never felt before.
“There are no words to describe the feelings you have when you see your child for the first time,” Bec, 29, explained to Woman’s Day.
“It was instant love and fascination – I couldn’t stop touching his hands and his hair.”
Right on cue, six-week-old Archie lets out a tiny cry to show he’s now the star of the show. And as doting dad George scoops up his little man and plants gentle kisses on his cheek, it’s clear the pair have settled into parenthood with ease.
“You can’t help but instantly fall in love,” explained George, 31. “He’s just perfect.”
After Bec suffered a miscarriage in 2012, the couple couldn’t be happier to welcome their baby boy eight weeks before Christmas on October 30.
