Matt J may be a - or The - Bachelor no longer but that doesn’t mean he isn’t still getting up to reality TV style antics.
The reality star turned Nova radio host stunned his breakfast show co-hosts Matt and Sarah when he made a jaw-dropping admission live on air about the one thing he was excited to try as a new dad, apart from fatherhood and the like.
“When I found out I was going to be a dad, one thing I was, I wouldn't say I was looking forward to doing, but one thing I was keen to experience was breast milk,” he admitted to a baffled Matt and Sarah on Saturday morning.
The new dad welcomed daughter Marlie-Mae Rose with partner Laura Byrne in June this year.
It turns out it wasn’t until more recently that his unusual wish was granted as Laura wasn’t having a bar of it for a long time.
“Finally after nine weeks of perseverance I said to Laura, 'Can I just try a little bit?' and reluctantly, she was expressing, and she said, 'Sure, I will give you a little sample, not a dash, just a sample.’,” he said.
Where many would run for the hills rather than drink someone’s breast milk, Matt admitted he wasn’t opposed to the taste, even saying it tasted ‘quite sweet’.
The pair met in 2017 on Matty’s season of The Bachelor and are one of the rare reality couples still going strong.
With ring, baby and now breastmilk ticked off the list the couple appear to be kicking every goal they ever dreamed of.
Next up, a bachelor wedding, though finger crossed they serve a more traditional beverage on their big day.
