The unlikely love story of the New Zealand couple, Married at First Sight, Brett Renall and Angel Fulljames, has reached another milestone after they announced that Angel was pregnant.
The couple, who have been together for more than four years, announced their special news about the baby on social media, writing “Mom and Dad” while holding photographs of their baby’s scans.
Brett and Angel said their baby is expected to arrive in April 2022.
The kiwis hurried to congratulate the happy couple on their next milestone.
“Congratulations! X,” Matty McLean wrote.
“Congratulations. You are lovely and you will be amazing parents,” wrote another.
It’s been four full years since Brett and Angel met at Married at First Sight and they became the centerpiece of one of the most unlikely love stories in the country.
Two everyday kiwis took the step to find love in a reality TV series known for their dramatic scandals and somehow managed to live happily ever after.
After the show, Angel moved to Lincoln on the outskirts of Christchurch shortly after filming MAFS and hasn’t looked back.
“I think you can imagine the best of cases,” he said of entering the show.
“But obviously at the same time you feel like it’s a bit of a miracle because the odds aren’t really in your favor.
“Four years ago I had no idea I would live in Lincoln. The fact that this is our usual life is crazy and it was created from that crazy experiment.”
The couple’s television marriage was legal from the start, unlike the weddings in later series.
They loved the day: the wedding photos make you feel proud when you walk in the front door of your cozy home and there was no urge to repeat it.
“It was a good day and it went well, so we’re happy,” Renall said. “It just seemed like a normal wedding to me.”
In early 2021, Renall revealed that they planned to start a family in the near future.
“We want to form a family so lucky that this will happen in 2021,” Renall revealed.
“They ask us a lot, usually from family members, but when you add a quarter of a million kiwis wondering … we are aware that people can’t wait.
“Keep in mind New Zealand: when it happens, you’ll be the first to know. Everyone just has to keep the phone.”
