MAFS fans criticised Beck Zemek's relationship timeline with her partner Ben - but a year later, they couldn't be more smitten

''No tattoos, just love.''

Beck Zemek started dating her partner Ben Michell in June 2020, but they were quickly met with a big road bump when she had to leave him to film Married At First Sight.
Her relationship with her match Jake Edwards wasn't a success, so when she admitted to cheating after getting caught kissing a mystery man while back in Perth, fans were less than impressed with her disloyal antics.
But the brunette beauty was clearly too besotted to care because when filming wrapped, she continued seeing her secret beau – Ben.

However, she kept their blooming romance to herself until she unofficially introduced their relationship in April 2021, when a fan asked during an Instagram Q&A if she was single.
In response, she shared a clip of herself snorkelling underwater when a man, and at the end of the video, his face is revealed when they appeared holding hands as they swam together.
It didn't take long for her to make their union Instagram grid official.

Beck posted a love-filled picture of them sharing a kiss, which she cryptically captioned, "No tattoos, just love."
It's clear they knew very quickly that they were in it for the long haul when they announced their exciting baby news last year.
While sharing the news on Instagram, the 29-year-old wrote, "The secret is out. Ben and I are over the moon to finally announce we are expecting a bundle of joy in May 2022!"
"Thank you to everyone who has kept this a secret for such a long time!!! Also for all the wonderful support over the last few months, it truly means the world to us.
"Who knew the best was yet to come, this is such a miracle for us and we are already over filled with love for you little one."

The Celebrity Apprentice star even penned a letter to her unborn bub that included a gushing tribute to Ben.
To begin with, she assured her daughter, "He is a good person with the best intentions," and continued on to write, "He is kind to me, patient and considerate, and so excited about meeting you."
"I also want you to know how much I love your dad. He is a good person with the best intentions. He is kind to me, patient and considerate, and so excited about meeting you.

"We can't wait to have you earth side, to surround you with love and see what great things you were made for."
Ben teased their fans in the lead up to the birth in May, "We still can't agree on a name, but we are ready for our 👸."
The happy couple has also taken on the arduous task of building a home while expecting a baby – so even though they didn't start on the best terms with MAFS fans, they've won their hearts over.
