Married At First Sight star Kate Laidlaw has announced that she’s created an OnlyFans account with her twin sister Bec.
The 38-year-old clinical nutritionist revealed the news on Instagram on Wednesday night, encouraging followers to pay $5 for a 31-day subscription.
Chatting with Yahoo Lifestyle about the new venture, Kate admits she was inspired by her fellow season nine cast members who have also joined the adult subscription-based platform.
“Obviously OnlyFans was a big topic this year on MAFS,” she says. “It lead to a lot of people asking me and me and my sister if we were going to an OnlyFans.
“After a lot of thinking and planning, we decided to be brave and to do it. Other MAFS and reality TV stars did influence us into looking more into it.”
Kate went on to say that she and her sister will be sharing “cheeky sexy content” on their account, as well as nutrition and fitness tips.
“It feels like a platform where I can be myself and show people more about me,” she adds. “It feels empowering and has helped Bec and I build so much confidence in ourselves. It’s helped us to embrace our true selves.”
‘It was tough’
Kate’s comments come shortly after she opened up to Yahoo Lifestyle about her time on MAFS and confessed that she found it “really hard” watching her portrayal on TV.
“I was in tears every day, it was tough,” she said. “I think that the main thing was seeing myself being portrayed on TV as something I don't see myself as.”
She also shared that there were a number of scenes she was surprised viewers didn’t get to see, including her “emotional breakdowns”.
“I had one the morning after the wedding where it just all hit me,” she continued. “Because you're auditioning for months at a time, you're getting all these high hopes and you have the wedding, and I expected it to just be fireworks and the dream and we were going to go off skipping into the sunset.
“And when that didn't happen, I kind of woke up the morning after the wedding and I literally went to the bathroom and I just cried and cried and cried. Because I was like, ‘Aw no, it hasn't worked out’.
“So what you don't see is I had to pull myself together and go, ‘You know what? This guy's auditioned, he’s gone through the same process as me, I’ve got to give this a go. Not only for myself, but for him because he has put himself in this position just like I have’. So I had to pull myself out of that and go on the honeymoon.”
