In addition to a number of photos of the now reunited couple with their baby daughter, Mary revealed that Summer was doing well despite her surprise arrival.

She wrote: ‘Conor and I present to you Summer Elizabeth Canning. Six weeks ahead of schedule, but she’s doing such a great job.

‘I feel like she’s already a daddy’s girl. Chanel can’t wait for a hug, ‘she added, referring to her eldest daughter from a previous relationship.

Conor shared a number of photos on his own Instagram page, including from when he met his daughter – who was born in Hobart while in Sydney – during what appeared to be a FaceTime call.

He wrote: ‘Welcome to the world Summer Elizabeth Canning. Just like your mother, you know how to make an entrance.

“You surprised us six weeks early while your dad was working in Sydney! The world is a better place now that you are in it. We love you’.

Mary announced on October 31 that the couple were expecting their first child together.

‘I know I haven’t been active lately, so I’m glad I can finally share the news that Conor and I are having a baby next year,’ she captioned a series of family photos on Instagram.

Following the announcement, Mary sparingly documented her pregnancy on Instagram, revealing that she originally planned to have a caesarean section in April.

She narrated Hobart’s hit 100.9 Jimmy & Nath show that she wanted a name for the newcomer who stared with the letter C, because her partner is called Conor and her oldest daughter is called Chanel.

“We’ve got Chanel, we’ve got Conor, we’ve got to keep the C train going… So there’s Ciara, just like the singer. I like Charm, like, how you have different charms, ‘she said.

“But my favorite number one contender is Cartier,” she added at the time – but instead went for Summer, which she hadn’t considered at the time.

Mary then hinted that she would like Conor to propose with a Cartier ring.

‘Last year for Christmas, Conor gave me a Chanel gift … So maybe next year he’ll get turned on and get me a Cartier ring? Listen, Conor? ‘ she laughed.

Mary and Conor have been together since they met on the third season of Bachelor in Paradise, which was filmed in late 2019 and aired early last year.
