The pair said they kept their relationship secret for about four months, admitting, ‘It was fun sneaking around.'
‘It was passionate and exciting and because we loved spending so much time together, we wanted to start a business together,' she said.
That’s when things started to fall apart for the couple.
‘The financial stress grew and roles were not defined, it put a lot of pressure on the relationship.
Jackie adds, ‘We saw the show as a great opportunity to go on a holiday together and get the romance back. Oops!
‘But it did actually work in a crazy way. And here we are.’
Jackie and Tim announced in May they are having a baby.
‘We’re having what we’re calling our "Seven Year Switch Baby!”,’ Jackie told New Idea.
The 32-year-old bubbly blonde adds: ‘It’s because of the show that we sorted things out and are now having a baby. It’s just incredible.
‘We got pregnant within a week of finishing the show, so that was a shock.'
