Don't panic but MAFS stars Erin Bateman and Bryce Mohr are back together

Perhaps true television love does exist after all?

By Bella Brennan

Season two Married At First Sight Australia favourites Erin Bateman and Bryce Mohr appeared to have parted ways at the start of the year.

Although they refused to confirm or deny their split, the MAFS alumni hadn't posted a loved-up selfie in months and in a very telling sign, had unfollowed each other on social media.

But it looks like a reconciliation has been made with Erin and Bryce both attending the first birthday party of season one stars Zoe Hendrix and Alex Garner's daughter, Harper-Rose.

And it's the first time Erin and Bryce have been pictured together all year.

Proud mum Zoe took to Instagram to post a photo from the get together and in the snap, Erin and Bryce stand next to each other as they smile alongside the birthday girl.

But it was Zoe's cheeky caption, in which she referred to the elusive duo as a "couple", that sent fans into a frenzy.

"Just two scientifically matched couples and a little nudist birthday girl," she penned.

Cue the MAFS hysteria, with fans rejoicing over the news they could be giving their love another shot.

"Is Erin back with Bryce?!?!? They broke up????" one eager punter commented.

"Thanks @zoehendrix for ‘giving’ us an update through photo that Erin and Bryce are still together," another added.

"So glad Erin and her BF are still together," a third mused.

Melbourne-based blogger Erin even got in on the action joking to Zoe: "Lol Zoe! Didn't you know we were trying to keep a low profile??"

To which the mum-of-one replied: "Oops! But you guys are gorgeous."

"Well obviously I know that part. Get excited for the Zoe and Erin show," Erin quipped back.

And in yet another clue they could be back together, Erin and Bryce are now following each other on Instagram again.

In February, a source close to the couple told us the pseudo husband and wife, who first met as strangers on their wedding day last year, struggled to keep their love alive.

"It’s very hard having a relationship in the public eye," the insider explained.

During the early days of their romance, both Erin and Bryce's Instagram pages were filled with cute pics from their various date nights.

In May, they looked happier than ever when they stepped out in Melbourne for a PDA-packed stroll. At one point, Bryce even placed his hand tenderly on Erin's belly.

However, the last time Erin posted a photo with her boyfriend was in November last year while she hasn't appeared on his page since September, 2016.

Last year, the nation watched as Erin and Bryce managed to overcome their differences about starting a family and stay together after the cameras stopped rolling on MAFS.

"I would love to continue this relationship with you," Erin confessed during the show's finale.

And the feeling was mutual from Bryce, who was keen to have kids sooner rather than later but was willing to work around Erin's priorities.

"At the end of the day that stuff [kids] will come when it comes, when you moved out the other day and I was so sad. That's when I knew I wanted to continue. There was just a big hole in that apartment. I want you there all the time," he said.

"My Tinder days are so done," Erin laughed at the time.
