The pair first met last year on the show.

Jess moved from Queensland to Will's sheep farm in Berriwillock, Victoria, admitting it was "a bit difficult", but things have only improved.

"We definitely do want to start a family, it’s definitely something we both want," Jess shared with hosts Kylie Gillies and Matt Doran, adding that her career is coming first for her right now, and they want to "wait for the right time" for children.


While kids aren't something the pair are considering for their immediate future, they have expanded their family with an adorable dachshund named Clyde.

Will adopted Clyde for Jess' birthday, with the farmer admitting he was "not a small dog person," but Jess played a "big part" in the decision to get Clyde.

"I’ve got two kelpies. Clyde has fit in very well, he was Jess’ birthday present earlier this year," he said. "It's all about compromise."

Speaking about her move, Jess says she has "adjusted quite well to farm life" but misses her friends and family back home.


"I think it’s always a bit difficult, being a bit older, moving - especially to a small country town where they can be quite close-knit," she added. "But it’s been really good and I have been loving the farm life."

"She’s fitted right in, which is very pleasing. It was a bit daunting when someone moves out to the country, away from everything they know, but Jess has done really well," Will said.

"She is playing netball at Sea Lake, the local football-netball club, she has made lots of friends, helps on the farm, she has fit in really well with my family as well which is a huge bonus," he added. "It’s good having her here."
