Fierce name for MAFS bride Susie Bradley and Todd Carney’s baby boy

There’s a Married At First Sight baby boom, with yet another former MAFS bride welcoming her bundle of joy. Susie Bradley and NRL player Todd Carney have announced the arrival of their first child together, a baby boy with a fierce name.

Susie, who was a bride in season six of MAFS, gave birth to Lion Daryl Carney last week, sharing a sweet snap on Instagram. “Born an Aries, March 27 2021 at 10.50am, 7 pounds 9.4 ounces, 50cm long on a perfect autumn day,” she wrote.

“A lion’s most common traits are majesty, strength, courage, justice and might. A lion stands for both gentleness and power all rolled into one. A lion in your life enables you to bring positive changes in the lives of yourself, your family and your friends. We love you our little Lion. You will be one of the greats.” Lion’s middle name, Daryl, is a tribute to Todd’s late father.

It’s the first baby for 34-year-old Todd, while 27-year-old nurse Susie has a five-year-old daughter, Baby, from a previous relationship. The couple first confirmed Susie’s pregnancy on Christmas Day last year, saying, “Our hearts are full, Christmas will be sweet. Our family is growing by one heart & two feet.”

The couple met through social media in 2019, going public with their relationships while Susie’s MAFS episodes with on-air husband Billy were still airing.

Susie and Todd have had an on-again off-again romance, but Todd revealed in late 2019 that they were planning on having children.“If Susie and I are ready to commit to it, I’d definitely love to have kids,” he told New Idea. He also explained his love for Susie’s daughter, Baby. “She has her own father, but while Baby’s in my care, I treat her as if she’s my own. It definitely makes you realise you have other people to care for when you put yourself in (the) position (of being a parent).”

Susie is the latest in a series of former MAFS brides to welcome new additions to their families. Tracey Jewel and husband Nathan Constable had a baby boy earlier this month, while the gorgeous Jules Robinson and Cameron Merchant became parents last year.
