Married At First Sight Australia got seriously awkward tonight as a bride’s dad told the groom about her daughter before she got a chance to open up about her past.
Single mum Susie had only just tied the knot with Billy and hadn’t found the right time at their wedding to talk to him about her three-year-old daughter Baby.
As she took a breather with her bridesmaids to discuss how she should approach the subject, Susie’s dad saw a golden opportunity to have a head-to-head with Billy – and he wasted no time in telling him about her child.
‘She will eat you alive,’ he told her daughter’s new husband. ‘Trust me, she will.’
Offering some advice, he then dropped a bombshell as he continued: ‘You have to just be a family person… because you know she’s got a kid?’
Billy, who was none the wiser, simply responded: ‘No, I didn’t.’
Speaking to the camera after, he confessed: ‘She has a child and the fact her dad had to tell me…
‘I’m like full of self-doubt now and she might think I don’t have those tools and I’m not equipped properly to build a life with.’
Susie later returned to sit next to Billy where she told him about her daughter.
‘I have a three-and-a-half-year-old daughter and her name’s Baby,’ she disclosed. ‘Were you expecting that?’
Not letting on that her dad had already spoken to him, Billy replied: ‘Nope. But you have a daughter and I’d love to meet her.’
A true gent!
Married At First Sight Australia continues on Thursday at X on E4.
