And hours after sharing the news, Married at First Sight stars Bryce Ruthven and Melissa Rawson, both 32, let slip when their little ones are due during an interview on The Kyle and Jackie O Show.

‘If you want to call one Kyle, I understand…’ radio host Kyle Sandilands cheekily said after calling up the couple at 8:30am.

Bryce then hinted at when the twins are set to arrive, saying: ‘What’s uncle Kyle doing somewhere around March? We’ll probably need him for babysitting duty!’

When asked about baby names, Bryce responded: ‘We’ve got probably about 10 boy and girl names, but because we don’t know what the genders are, it’s sort of hard.

‘What we’re hoping for is that they’re both really healthy, and we know that they’re coming into a loving family.’

Kyle joked the pair had announced the pregnancy as a publicity stunt, after months of speculation their controversial relationship was a ‘showmance’.
