One week after shocking fans with her twin pregnancy news, Married At First Sight star Melissa Rawson has shared a snippet of her first ultrasound.

The 32-year-old, who is expecting with her fiancé and fellow MAFS star Bryce Ruthven, took to Instagram on Monday to post the footage.

“My first ultrasound seeing the twins!” Melissa captioned the post.

Bryce shared similar video footage to his social media last Wednesday, showing Melissa getting the 12-week scan while lying on a hospital bed.

“Meet our healthy twins!” the radio host captioned the video, adding, “So proud of how well she’s handling pregnant life.”


Bryce and Melissa’s twins will be a world-first for the Married At First Sight franchise.

Revealing the baby news with New Idea last week, Melissa said that “it’s been a whirlwind but we’re so incredibly happy”.

Due to the ongoing Covid pandemic, Bryce was unable to join his partner for her first ultrasound where she learnt that she was having twins.

“I was alone during the first ultrasound and [the nurse] just came straight out with it - no warning,” Melissa said. “I couldn't stop crying, it was very emotional. I think I said ‘holy s**t’ seven times.”

Bryce said he hopes the kids will “grow up close”, calling the whole situation a “blessing”.

Speaking about plans for their upcoming wedding, the couple has said that they want a “low-key” event as opposed to their TV nuptials.

While the pair said that they are in no rush to get married, they have hinted at who will and won’t be invited to celebrate their love.

While the show’s experts who matched Melissa and Bryce together will “definitely not” be in attendance, a few grooms have made the list.

“I’m still close to Jason, he’ll be there,” says Bryce, “and Cameron, Russell and James ... we’ll see.”

Shortly after announcing their news, Bryce posted a video of their engagement on Instagram.

The former TV groom took Melissa on a helicopter ride in Melbourne where he popped the question, proposing with a 2ct black pear-shaped diamond ring which she had helped design.

“The most beautifully unique ring and exciting proposal I could have ever experienced,” his future bride commented.
