MAFS villain Davina Rankin welcomes baby girl

Former Married at First Sight star Davina Rankin, who gained notoriety as 2018’s villain, has given birth to a beautiful baby girl.

Sharing the news on Instagram, she wrote, “Welcome to the world little Miss Mila-Mae Manuel 11/11/19 7lbs

“I never knew a love like this existed, @jaxonmanuel and I are just absolutely smitten with you. Words can’t even describe it!”

Congratulations quickly flowed in, including from a number of ex MAFS stars.

“Huge congrats to you and your man enjoy motherhood beautiful,” Lauren Huntriss from last year’s season wrote, while Sarah Roza from the 2018 series said, “I am absolutely THRILLED for you both! Such wonderful news! She’s just DIVINE! Congratulations!!!”

Since her time on the reality TV show, in which she and fellow contestant Dean Wells abandoned their ‘spouses’ to engage in a secret affair, Davina has found love with boyfriend Jaxon Manuel and the pair recently bought a house together in Queensland.

Davina, 28, announced she was expecting a baby with a magazine photoshoot earlier this year, however the journey had been far from picture-perfect.

In an honest YouTube video, she explained that she had experienced terrible morning sickness during the first trimester, saying she would throw up “at least five times a day” and “just couldn’t peel myself out of bed”.
