Former Married at First Sight star Davina Rankin is expecting her first child with boyfriend Jaxon Manuel.

The 28-year-old, who was cast as last year’s villain after engaging in a clandestine couple swap with Dean Wells, is 13 weeks pregnant and expecting her bundle of joy in November.

After revealing the happy news on the cover of NW magazine, Davina took to Instagram to share her joy.

“This years Mother’s Day was just that tiny bit more special,” she wrote, “Especially knowing a little baby Manuel is due to join the family November ‘19”.

“I’ll tell you it’s been a LONG 3 months keeping quiet for @jaxonmanuel and I, but we are so happy to finally be able to yell our exciting news from the rooftops. Our hearts are overflowing with love.”

The first trimester has been rough for Davina, with the reality star suffering from intense morning sickness and losing six kilos.

“I'm throwing up all day,” she told Woman’s Day.

Davina was originally paired with Ryan Gallagher on the 2018 series of the show, but things went south quickly for the couple. Likewise, her run in with fellow contestant Dean ended poorly, but the brunette has since found love with cafe owner Jaxon.

“Jax and I have been friends for years but the timing now is just perfect for the both of us,” she told the Daily Mail in April last year.

“He’s the best and we are extremely happy with one another. Life is good.”

Davina and Jaxon celebrated their first anniversary on April 19, with Davina describing him as ‘the love of my life’.
