Michael Brunelli has shared new footage of his fiancée Martha Kalifatifis ahead of surgery.

In the video, posted to Instagram, the MAFS stars wait in a hospital room ahead of the procedure.

Martha is donning a surgical gown in anticipation. “Saying goodbye to my two best friends today,” Michael captioned the footage.

“I’ll never forget you both.” He then added: “Can’t believe I didn’t write “two breast friends”.

It seems that Martha is undergoing explant surgery to remove her breast implants.

A fan asked Michael how the mother-of-one is recovering, to which he replied: “She’s doing well, I’m sure she’ll post all about it soon.”

Martha, who was 20 when she got the implants, previously revealed that her bust ballooned to an F-cup bra size after giving birth.

The now 36-year-old told a young fan who was considering getting breast implants to “wait” until she was older.

“Never make a decision about surgery if you have doubts [or] are unsure,” she said.

Martha and Michael, who met on season six of Married At First Sight and are now engaged, welcomed their son Lucius in February 2023.

The reality star did not have an easy pregnancy, struggling with hyperemesis gravidarum (HG) – an extreme form of morning sickness.

“At five weeks I was diagnosed with (hg) which is basically severe chronic nausea and vomiting with no relief. It is like 24/7,” Martha said on social media during her pregnancy.

“I literally did not get out of bed for two months, I was so sick. I could not eat or drink anything. There were days that I did not even get up to pee.”

The condition was so bad that Martha was in and out of hospital and lost 10 kilograms before she was prescribed medication that had her feeling “human again”.

Now, she and Michael are happier than ever with little Lucius. See their sweetest family moments here.
