MAFS’ Kerry and Jonny have welcomed their first child!

It continued: “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.”

Kerry and Johnny met on season eight of Married At First Sight in 2021 and remain one of the few couples still together.

They entered the experiment later than the other couples but instantly hit it off, committing to each other in the final vows.

Seven months after they met at the altar, Kerry’s parents flew to Brisbane to meet Johnny’s parents.

They tied the knot for real in July 2022.

It was then that they found out that their dads not only share the same name, but grew up in the same neighbourhood in Melbourne and attended the same high school at the same time.

A year after their MAFS experience, Kerry reflected on their journey via Instagram.

“We made vows that day to look after each other, to be team mates and we’ve never looked back,” she wrote.

“Only you and I will ever know how deep those promises have run and how much we’ve been through together.

“Back then, I had no idea what the future would hold and now I can’t see one without you in it.”
