The couple welcomed their first child, a little boy, last year, with them keeping the pregnancy under wraps until they announced the birth of the baby. 

The news clearly came as a shock to many of the couple’s friends and followers, with Survivor star Brooke Jowett writing, ‘Oh my god whaaaaaat????’ on Jessica’s post.

The Aaron and David characters tied the knot on the show in 2018, soon after gay marriage was legalised in Australia in 2017.

Magda Szubanski, an outspoken advocate for the gay, lesbian and transgender community, played the celebrant.
