Two babies and a wedding! Controversial Married At First Sight couple Bryce Ruthven and Melissa Rawson have announced they are expecting twins and engaged to be married
Bryce and Melissa’s twins will be a world first for the Married At First Sight franchise.
‘It’s been a whirlwind but we’re so incredibly happy,’ said workplace trainer Melissa.
She added that getting married for real ‘just felt like the next logical step’ after exchanging vows in a non-legally binding ceremony on MAFS.

The couple are planning a ‘low-key’ wedding, but said they won’t be inviting the show’s relationship experts Mel Shilling, John Aiken and Alessandra Rampolla.
Bryce indicated he will invite a few of the grooms from his season, including Jason Engler, Cameron Dunne, Russell Duance and James Susler.
But it’s unlikely Melissa will be asking any of her fellow MAFS brides to attend her wedding, as several of them bullied her during filming.

They won’t be rushing into a ‘shotgun wedding’ either, with the expectant mother telling New Idea: ‘I’ll have two babies by the time I walk down the aisle.’
Melissa admitted she ‘couldn’t stop crying and said “holy s**t” seven times’ after the nurse told her she was pregnant with twins during her first ultrasound scan.
Bryce wasn’t present for the scan due to Covid restrictions, but he’s already thrown himself into preparing their Mornington Peninsula home for two little ones.
He said: ‘This is all such a blessing to be able to bring two children into the world together. We’re on cloud nine.’
