MAFS’ Bryce and Melissa spill on 'very unique' names for their twins

They shocked fans with the exciting news that they are expecting twins together later this year and now Married At First Sight’s Melissa Rawson and Bryce Ruthven have revealed they’ve already picked names for their bundles of joy.

The controversial couple appeared on Saturday night’s A Current Affair, where they spilled all about their expanding family and plans to tie the knot.

"We've got a list of about 10 boy and girl names, and because we're having twins, we need two of each. So yeah, I think we're pretty set," Melissa said.

"Very unique names and I guess that's kind of a real testament to our relationship," Bryce said.


Melissa said she was “shocked” when she first found out she was pregnant and it took her a bit of time to get her head around it.

When she discovered she was having twins, Melissa said she was “over the moon” and the couple are very happy.

Speaking about their season of MAFS, Bryce also said he was “no angel on the show” and had some moments he’s not proud of.

The couple said they will wait until after the babies are born before they tie the knot and are looking forward to a celebration on the beach with friends.

The interview comes after Melissa took to her Instagram account earlier in July to post footage from her scan.

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

Bryce shared similar video footage to his social media, 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, Melissa said that “it’s been a whirlwind but we’re so incredibly happy”.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 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.
