One of the most controversial couples in Married at First Sight history, Bryce Ruthven and Melissa Rawson, have announced they’re expecting twins.

The pair also revealed they’re engaged and are ‘deeply in love’. “It’s all happened very fast,” Bryce told New Idea. “It’s been a whirlwind, but we’re so incredibly happy,” added Mel.

While not the first baby for MAFS stars, with season six darlings Jules and Cam welcoming a baby boy last year, Mel says twins is a world-first for the TV series.

The couple drew criticism during their time on MAFS season 8, but they’ve since put it all behind them.

“People saw on the show how supportive and loyal Mel was,” said Bryce, 32. “I’m pleased to say that’s transitioned to the real world.”

“We’d already been married on the show and, with our relationship getting stronger, this just felt like the logical next step,” added Mel, 32.

Mel explained she burst into tears when she discovered she was expecting twins. “Bryce had to wait elsewhere due to COVID, so I was alone during the first ultrasound and she just came straight out with it – no warning. I couldn’t stop crying, it was very emotional. I think I said ‘holy s–t’ seven times.”

Bryce says the couple is truly happy. “We’re not doing this for anybody else, it’s about us – we’re cementing our love. Melissa deserves to be happy and I’m apparently very good at that, so I’m looking forward to making it all official.”

The couple is reportedly planning a low-key wedding after the babies are born.
