Mr Hall left behind his heavily pregnant wife Emily Hall, who described him as her "best friend and soul mate.”
“I can’t fathom life without him but my strength is knowing he will live through his son.
“I will love him enough for the two of us and I will make sure I do Matt proud and be the best mum to him.”
Ms Hall welcomed the couple's first child over the weekend, with her cousin, Isabella Longginou, sharing a photo of the new mum and bub on Instagram.
