Former Bachelor NZ participants Art and Matilda Green have shared an ultrasound image of their first child together.

"The coolest thing ever is seeing your baby look like an actual baby," she captioned the scan.

"It has a head! And limbs! And little tiny hands and feet! This moment makes all the tougher days of pregnancy worth it.

"WE LOVE YOU SO MUCH ALREADY LITTLE GREEN!"

Matilda, née Rice, recently took her new husband's last name after the pair was married on Waiheke Island last month. 

The couple, who met on season one of The Bachelor NZ, shared photos of their big day along with the news they'd be expecting a new addition to their family in a cover story for Woman's Day.

"Art and I are absolutely over the moon," they told the magazine.

"We always knew we wanted to start a family, but never imagined we'd be lucky enough to share our special day with our wee son or daughter."

After revealing their happy news, Matilda explained she'd no longer be able to compete as a celebrity contestant on Dancing With The Stars NZ this year.

"I'm gutted to have to pull out of Dancing with the Stars," she told Newshub.

"But naturally I'm also super-excited about this next chapter in our lives. I'll be looking forward to cheering all the other dancers on from the sidelines during the show later this year!"
