Stacey appears to have well and truly moved on from her Married At First Sight ex Michael Goonan – but her new man shares a noticeable similarity with him!

WATCH BELOW: Stacey Hampton reveals what Michael told her at the end of MAFS.

The law graduate has shared a series of photos with her rumoured new man, who appears to work in sales and runs his own website selling glassware. 

Last week, the couple spent a romantic weekend in Sydney and shared snaps of themselves kissing in front of the Harbour Bridge and with their arms around one another.

Back in South Australia, Adelaide local Stacey shared a screenshot of the couple video chatting, which revealed her boyfriend shares one big similarity with her MAFS ex – his name, Mick! 

Stacey was engaged to Rebels bikie boss Shane Michael Smith. The couple broke up in 2017 and share sons Kosta, four, and Kruz, two. 

“It’s weird, because we’re not together but he’s always there for me,” Stacey told WHO about her ex.

“I think society likes to judge but what my ex does and who he associates with doesn’t reflect on me – he’s a great dad, we co-parent so well, and he supports us all.”

Following her stint on MAFS, Stacey split with Michael Goonan, whom she was partnered with on the show.

Though they made a commitment to one another during the final vow ceremony on the show, the couple broke up following the alleged cheating scandal between Stacey and co-star Mikey.

Both Stacey and Michael, the latter of whom was involved in a separate cheating scandal with co-star Hayley, denied their respective affairs.

Michael, meanwhile, has moved on with co-star KC and the two seem to be going from strength to strength.

News of their relationship broke just as the global COVID-19 pandemic hit and the two went into isolation together almost immediately.

In a sweet post to her Instagram stories, KC, who moved home after living in the US for almost a decade, shared a tribute to her boyfriend.

“That’s my boy,” she captioned a snap of Michael adding, “Coming back to Australia was definitely worth it.”
