MAFS’ Bryce and Melissa bring twins home for Christmas: ‘Complete’

After welcoming their twin boys into the world 10 weeks earlier than expected, Bryce Ruthven and Melissa Rawson have finally been able to bring their newborns home from the hospital ahead of Christmas.

The former Married At First Sight stars announced back in October that their sons, Levi and Tate, had arrived prematurely and had to spend the next few weeks in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

Bryce and Melissa both took to Instagram on Tuesday to share the exciting update alongside a few sweet snaps of their family of four in their backyard.

“Home under the one roof,” Bryce wrote.

Melissa, who commented “complete” on her fiancé’s gallery, captioned her own post with: “Welcome home my sweet little angels.”


A number of the pair’s famous followers took to the comments to congratulate them on their happy news during the festive season.

“This is everything,” MAFS Jason Engler said.

“Awww this is so beautiful you guys, wishing you all the health and happiness in the world,” their former co-star Christopher Jensen added.

“Beautiful family!” Bachelor In Paradise’s Jamie Doran replied, followed by Big Brother VIP’s Jessika Power with several heart-eye emojis.

Bryce also posted a video of his sons on his Instagram Story, explaining that they have actually been home for the past couple of weeks.

“So this is what the last two weeks have been like at home since they’ve come out of hospital,” he said. “Levi with mum, chatting away, and Tatey just sleeping away by the Christmas tree. So cute!”

The couple has been posting regular updates with their fans online for the past nine weeks as they’ve documented their journey as new parents.

Last month, Melissa took to Instagram to share how excited she was to dress Levi and Tate in their own outfits.

“Now that the boys are out of their isolettes and in their open cribs, we can finally dress them in baby clothes (00000 is still too big for them) and properly hear their gorgeous little sounds and chatter,” she wrote. "Both boys have just started suckling which is another step closer to coming home.”

Bryce also recently shared a photo of himself in the hospital standing over his sons alongside a touching tribute.

“Loved for the boys you are, the men you will become and the sons you will always be,” he wrote.
