Emelia announced her pregnancy back in December, uploading an Instagram photo of herself posing with her baby bump on display.
‘Excuse the toilet in the background but this baby is popping today… Sous chef coming in June,’ she wrote as she posed in the mirror of her bathroom.
The soon-to-be-mother was beaming as she cradled her stomach with one hand while taking the mirror selfie with the other.

Shortly after she made the announcement, Emelia was inundated with well wishes from a number of her MasterChef co-stars.
‘Omg Milsy! Biggest congrats on the choux bun in the oven,’ gushed Poh Ling Yeow.
‘So bloody exciting! Bubba Mills,’ wrote Brendan Pang, while Tessa Boersma simply posted three love heart emojis.
Meanwhile Rose Adam wrote: ‘This is amazing. Congratulations,’ and MasterChef Judge Jock Zonfrillo shared an emoji of a fist bump and an explosion.

Little is known about Emelia and Craig’s relationship as she rarely posts pictures of them together on Instagram, nor does she name or tag him when she does.
It appears the couple have been together for at least two years.
Emelia first shared a selfie with Craig to Facebook in July 2018. She has posted just a handful of pictures with him since they made their social media debut.

The couple’s exciting news comes after Emelia was crowned the winner of MasterChef Australia: Back To Win earlier this year.
She took home a whopping $250,000 – which she says will help build her cake business – and the MasterChef 2020 trophy.
Emelia beat out runner-up Laura Sharrad, who was undone by her overly icy gelato dessert, which was accidentally left in an open freezer.
