Melissa Rawson and Bryce Ruthven are celebrating a "huge milestone" this week with their twins Levi and Tate turning one month old.

The former Married at First Sight bride took to Instagram on Sunday to share how "amazed" she and fiancé Bryce are watching them grow after they were born 10 weeks premature on October 16.

"They have been in NICU since birth and even though I’d have given anything to have kept them in my tummy for a little while longer, we’ve been amazed at watching these tiny humans grow," Melissa wrote.

"Keep growing little bubbies, Mummy and Daddy love you so much."

Bryce also took to his own Instagram account to add: "Mini milestone today for our gorgeous twin boys."


It comes a week after the couple revealed the twins were exposed to Covid-19 while in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) of the hospital.

“A Covid case in the twins’ NICU ward,” Bryce captioned an Instagram story. “Tate and Levi are all good but quite worrying until they both come back negative.

“They’re both in 14 days isolation, so no cuddles today for the boys. Hopefully soon!”

Melissa then shared an update with fans online on Thursday, writing: "Our boys have had their second Covid test and they’ve both come back negative, which is good."

She detailed on her Instagram story that they still had to isolate “for another six days”.

“It’s been stressful, but the boys are doing so well. They’re still on air, but they’re growing every day, putting on lots of weight which is good. And they’re just doing amazing.”

Recently, the reality TV couple were slammed by followers for implying that Melissa gave birth 10 weeks early due to receiving the second Pfizer jab.
