Last night, Married At First Sight‘s Olivia Frazer and Jackson Lonie decided to go the distance after the show during their final vows.

Even though fans were concerned the groom would back out due to his TV wife’s behaviour, Jackson was undeterred.

Speaking to 9Entertainment, Olivia gushed about her man.

“Telling Jackson that I loved him just felt like the most natural thing in the world to do,” she said.

“I think it was pretty obvious since day one that I was a smitten kitten, I couldn’t help myself. It felt really good to get off my chest.”

Jackson was smitten himself when Olivia declared her love for him, remarking to 9 Entertainment: “When Liv said that she loved me, my breath was taken away.

“It’s something we came here for, to find love, and to know somebody’s already at that stage, it was amazing.”

However, despite the fact that her TV husband didn’t say those three words back, Olivia admitted she wasn’t worried because she felt it was authentic.

“I didn’t expect Jackson to say it,” she stated.

“I also hoped that he kinda wouldn’t ’cause I think if he did, I would always question if he just said it because the pressure got to him. I think he’s there, he just hasn’t had the penny drop, the eureka moment hasn’t happened… but we’re very close.”

When it came to expressing where he was at with Olivia during the vows, Jackson commented on their “instant connection” and promised to make her “feel special every day.”

But instead of saying ‘I love you’ he said, “I want you to know that I’m definitely on my way there and when I do finally say it, you will know that it’s sincere and in that moment I will love you with my whole heart.”

Jackson also told Nine that he’s getting closer to taking his feelings to that next level.

“I have not told her that I love her yet but I’m very, very close,” he ensured.

The couple are reportedly still together and there’s even buzz that Jackson has moved from Melbourne up to the Central Coast to be with his MAFS bride.
