MAFS stars Jules Robinson and Cam Merchant announce second pregnancy

After meeting on the 2019 series of Married At First Sight, Jules Robinson and Cam Merchant have become one of the series' biggest success couples.

Jules Robinson and Cam Merchant have announced they're expecting their second child after years of trying to grow their family.

The power couple, who met on the 2019 season of Married At First Sight, welcomed their first son Ollie in 2020, and announced their exciting family news on Stellar magazine's Something To Talk About podcast over the weekend.

Jules, 41, said she and Cam have been trying for three years to grow their family, saying Ollie was one when they first started trying to conceive again.

"We were realistically going into 2024 thinking, ‘If it doesn’t happen, we will look at the IVF route’, but I never lost faith that my body could do this again," she shared.

She also opened up about how her second pregnancy has been different, saying she found her first pregnancy hard during the first COVID lockdown as well as not being able to have her people around her.

“I guess when I was pregnant [with Ollie], I didn’t have my ‘force’ – which I have built around me over the past few years. I found it really hard,” she said, before saying she dealt with horrible comments from people online.

“I didn’t like all of the attention and negativity from horrible people about my body when I was pregnant, and the terrible messages. They’d say, ‘I hope you have a painful miscarriage’ and horrible things like that. Some people can just be terrible."

Jules said her second pregnancy has been a much nicer experience.

“This time around, it has been really lovely. It has been nice keeping it between family and friends and a bit more private this time," she said.

Jules and Cam's second baby is due to arrive in July 2024.
