MAFS Australia couple expecting first child together

Married at First Sight Australia couple Kerry and Johnny Balbuzient have announced that they are expecting their first child together.

The couple met on season eight of the reality show back in 2021, and later got married again last January.

Kerry shared the announcement by posting on Instagram, with a sweet photo of the couple by their swimming pool, along with their dog.

In the caption, Kerry confirmed the due date of their baby and wrote: "Baby B incoming, June 2024. Thrilled to be adding a much wanted and already so loved member to our family.

"Our journey took a bit longer than we'd hoped for but not as long as others. Thinking of everyone still on their path."

The caption also included some pink ribbon emojis, and Kerry used the song 'My Girl' by The Temptations to share the post, so it's fair to assume that the pair will be having a baby girl.

Friends and fans of the couple sent their best wishes, including MAFS expert Mel Schilling, who wrote: "Ooohhhh congratulations you two! I'm so delighted for you, you will be fabulous parents."

Meanwhile, season nine star Al Perkins sent his congratulations, and MAFS UK contestant Adrian Sanderson commented: "Congrats guys, love this."

Although the couple ended up being a match made in heaven, their MAFS experience nearly ended up being very different.

The pair told Yahoo Lifestyle last year that Johnny's original bride dropped out last minute, with Kerry given only four days notice to fly to Sydney as a late replacement.

Kerry said: "I got a phone call out of the blue on a Tuesday in September and it was like: 'You're on but you've got to go by Saturday'. So I had to pack up my life and hand over my full-time job and all of that."

"If that's not fate, I have no idea what is," Johnny said. "I'm eternally grateful."
