5 things to know about Yummy Mummies’ Lorinska Merrington

We did the digging on the Yummy Mummies cast so you don't have to.

By TV Week team
Yummy Mummies is a reality TV curve-ball that's dividing the nation. And if Lorinska Merrington's opinion of herself is anything to go by, it's safe to say she's going to be just as divisive herself.
"People will either love me or hate me, I don't think I'll have anything in between," she tells TV WEEK.
"We are all doing motherhood in our own way because we are so incredibly different and that's okay. The one thing we all have in common is we are all becoming mothers and will love our children beyond words. I can't wait for people to see my story," she says.
"It [being judged] is a possibility. But I'm positive, and focusing on the good things is my priority."

So, what does Lorinska do?

She's a model, traffic presenter and a primary school teacher.

Where can you follow Lorinska on Instagram?

Her Instagram handle is @lorinska.

Where have you seen her before?

On Offspring, maybe?

Or this Chemist Warehouse commercial, perhaps?

Or reporting on Melbourne and Adelaide traffic on The Today Show?

Who is Lorinska's husband?

The Melbourne socialite is married to Andrew Merrington, a partner in a successful finance company and former AFL player.
"Andrew had his fame while playing for Carlton, and modelling and TV presenting has had me in the limelight," Lorinksa, 32, told TV WEEK.
"I count my lucky stars I have him," she gushes. "He's my number-one fan and has been such a supportive role model from day one."

What can we expect to see from her on Yummy Mummies?

A whole lot, by the sounds of it! So much so, she reckons she has a spin-off in her, telling TV WEEK that she's already planning her own reality TV show.
"Keeping Up With The Merringtons, stay tuned," she teased, adding that this isn't her and her hubby's first brush with fame.
"Andrew was asked to be on a cooking show and we really sucked bad."

But despite whatever drama the Mummies may throw at her, Lorinska assures she'll always be stylish on screen.
"Even though I was pregnant [during filming], I didn't want that to stop me from wearing the latest fashions," she told TV WEEK.
"I never let being pregnant stop me from keeping up appearances – I was still out and about loving life, so with all that in play I knew I was the perfect match for the show. I've modelled since the ripe age of 14 years old so this is second nature to me."
So just how many kids would Lorinska and her hubby like to have?
"I'm born to breed," Lorinska says. "Four babies for me, please."
