Celebrity chef shares beautiful news, six years since losing his entire family in a fire.

Almost six years after suffering an unimaginable tragedy, there is some new joy for celebrity chef Matt Golinski.

The Queensland man told regional newspaper The News Mail that his fiancée, Erin Yarwood, is expecting their first child.

It’s believed the fitness trainer is due in a little over a week’s time.

The Ready Steady Cook star lost his wife, Rachel, and their three children – 10-year-old Starlia and 12-year-old twins Sage and Willow – in a horrific blaze that tore through their Sunshine Coast home on Boxing Day 2011.

Galinski suffered burns to 40 per cent of his body, and awoke in Royal Brisbane Hospital two months later to learn he was the only survivor.

It was in hospital where a grieving Galinski met Yarwood, who was assisting with his rehabilitation.

A friendship followed and, ultimately, love.

"I hadn't really been considering the idea of a new relationship - I just wanted to get well and move on from everything. Then fate came along and I was lucky to meet someone who was really special," he told The Daily Mail Australia.

"A lot of people search their whole lives for love. I have been lucky enough to have two great loves. To love two wonderful, kind women."
