The Yorkshire Vet star was initially traumatized by their loss, but after talking to family and friends and realizing how “common” the couple’s devastating miscarriage experience could be, Matt felt “comforted” and resolved both “keep trying”.
“The moment she showed me the [positive] pregnancy test [six weeks later]we knew life was about to change dramatically,” said the 34-year-old veterinary expert.
“There were only a few times in my life when I was speechless – that moment and when Anastasia was born.”
Sure enough, Matt hailed his little bundle as “the best present ever” when she was finally born via planned C-section on October 25 – and Katherine joked that her arrival at the right time meant she didn’t need any buy a birthday for her husband. gifts.
Despite admitting on Instagram that he’s already “peed, poed and vomitted on”, Matt can’t stop smiling.

However, he couldn’t resist a sneak peek when it came to the 20-week scan at the ultrasonographer’s office.
“She told us to close our eyes when she got to that part, and Katherine asked, ‘Is he closing his part?’ She pulled me in, though, and said, ‘He’s got it, he’s not good,'” he joked.
Meanwhile, Matt revealed his ambitions for his daughter to pursue and become a vet herself.

“We’ve got our hands full right now. We’ve had enough of this mix of joy and chaos,” admitted the happy but exhausted new dad.
