Congratulations are in order for former Married At First Sight star Davina Rankin, who has today announced she's expecting her first child with boyfriend Jax Manuel.
The 28-year-old personal trainer confirmed the news to NW on Monday, revealing she is 13 weeks pregnant and suffering from "intense" morning sickness. Davina said she hopes that having a baby will save her from "being that MAFS girl" and people will realise she's a "different person" to who she was 12 months ago.
Davina added that she is planning a "fully natural birth" without drugs. While weight gain is par for the course during pregnancy, the Brisbane-based reality star has actually lost six kilograms due to her morning sickness.
"I'm not eating nearly as much as I would usually. My meal portions are a lot smaller. Also, I haven't trained for three months so I'm losing muscle," she told the publication.
Davina rose to fame on Married At First Sight last year, but her relationship with Sydney tradesman Ryan Gallagher ended badly. She plotted an affair with another groom, Dean Wells, during the experiment and the scandal made headlines for months.
"I feel like there was never a time when I wasn't with Jax. MAFS seems like a whole other world. It's strange," she said.
