They may have said the L-word after dating for just a week, but Married At First Sight couple Jessika Power and Dan Webb have admitted they're taking things slow post-filming.
Despite the controversial bride being vocal about her plans to move to the Gold Coast to live with Dan and his five-year-old son, Dan revealed today that the two were, in fact, living apart.
“She lives actually between the Gold Coast and Brisbane, she’s got family here as well, so, no, we’re not living together, that’s definitely not going to happen straight away,” Dan told radio station Hit 103.5. “I’m more of a guy that likes to take things slow and just reassess everything, but we spend as much time as we can together when she’s on the Gold Coast.”
Dan also confirmed that his girlfriend was yet to meet his mother, who hadn't been happy about her son "swapping" Tamara Joy for Jess.
“No, she hasn’t [met Jessika],” Dan said. “It’s been one big whirlwind since this is all finished, [I’m] just trying to get through things and back in routine and work. And Mum actually lives up in Airlie Beach, so we haven’t got that far yet, we’re just taking things slow at the moment.”
Speaking to Hit 103.5 Dan also backed claims previously made by Jessika they were “persuaded” to keep their affair secret by producers.
“When the affair did start with Jess there was ways where I would have loved to have gone about it differently but was persuaded to do something different, if that makes sense,” he claimed.
In a separate interview with Hit 92.9, Jessika revealed she was yet to meet Dan’s son, despite the pair dating for four months, and they had no plans to move in together soon.“Because coming out of the experiment we just wanted to do like the normal couple thing like go on dates and have the honeymoon stage,” she said.
During Sunday night’s vow-renewal ceremony, Dan told Jess he was prepared to give their relationship a go despite being unhappy with how their romance began and her antics at the last dinner party.
“Life’s too short to hide how you feel. I came here to fall in love and hope to have someone to take home and introduce to my son as my girl. I found that girl in you,” he said.
