MAFS' Martha accidentally reveals her unborn son's name on Instagram

The reality TV star's mother may have given it away.

Just a few days after announcing that she and her fiancé Michael Brunelli are having a baby boy, Martha Kalifatidis appears to have accidentally revealed the name they’ve chosen for their unborn son.

The heavily pregnant Married At First Sight star took to her Instagram Story this week to post a series of snaps from her recent baby shower, including a photo of her guest book filled with well-wishes from her family and friends.

Among the messages was one from her mother Mary, who wrote: “Dearest, Guiseppe, you are my first grandchild.

“You will be forever loved and spoilt. I know you will love me because I will spoil you so much. Everything your heart desires will be yours.”

The former Big Brother contestant ended the passage with: “Love you Guiseppe, can’t wait to meet you.”


Guiseppe, traditionally spelled Giuseppe, is the Italian form of the name Joseph. Martha revealed during a Q&A on Monday that she and Michael had chosen an Italian name for their son because that is where he was conceived.

'I was devastated'

Martha’s post comes after she admitted that she was “devastated” when she found out she was having a boy.

Speaking on KIIS FM's Will & Woody, the Celebrity Apprentice star told the hosts, “Guys I was 100 per cent sure I was having a girl. Like, I had only opened girl clothing tabs on my phone, I was so convinced.

“There was no chance in my mind it was going to be a boy, I had planned my whole life for this girl, I'll be so honest with you guys. At the beginning, I was devastated, like I was so upset. It took me a few days to like come to terms with it.”


Martha and Michael announced the baby’s sex in a sweet Instagram video alongside the caption, “Oh, boy do we have news”.

The video includes several sweet clips of the pair at the doctor's office looking at sonograms and spending time with their families before Michael gives Martha a jewellery box with a ring inside.

After opening the box, Martha revealed the ring had blue stones, a surprise for both her and Michael as Armans Jewellery had organised everything for them.
