Just a week after giving birth to her first child, former Miss Universe Australia *Rachael Finch *has opened up on life as a first-time mum.
The 26-year-old beauty queen and husband *Michael Miziner *, right, * *welcomed their daughter *Violet Rachael Miziner *into the world last Tuesday.
And in an exclusive chat with New Idea, the proud parents said they were shocked to discover that their new bundle of joy was a girl after originally thinking they were expecting a boy.
"Having a girl was a complete surprise," Finch told the magazine. "During an ultrasound, we both thought we saw a penis. Then a girl came out! And she is so beautiful!"
Finch was also happy to report that Violet has inherited her model stature.
"She's got my long limbs and hands," she said. "I can't wait to see what she looks like when she grows up."
Miziner - who is set to appear on the 13th season of Seven's Dancing with the Stars as My Kitchen Rules' contestant *Sophia Pou *'s dance partner - has also warmed to being a dad.
"Being a parent feels amazing," he said. "I just can't stop watching her. It's a new hobby."
