She found fame as the sassy and sarcastic commentator on Matt Agnew’s season of The Bachelor last year.

And as Mary Viturino returned to our screens this year to reprise her role as the resident shock jockette on the latest season of Bachelor In Paradise, we discovered there’s a softer side to the outspoken beauty.

The 32-year-old is the proud mother to a beautiful little girl called Chanel, who looks identical to her!

Mary shares her six-year-old daughter with her ex-husband – an Aussie she met in Rio, Brazil when she was just 25.

The pair fell in love, before becoming engaged and moving to Australia, but they sadly split after six years together.

“I did get married young because most of my friends, they were church friends, and they were all married young and you know, I always wanted to have a relationship,” Mary told Now To Love last year, before saying that she came from a “very strict upbringing without one night stands”.

“I found this guy and we were so in love and it was just beautiful. It was like a beautiful story and it was great while it lasted, so now it’s just, thank you next!”

Mary admits having a young child makes dating all the more complicated.

“People think that just because you’re a single mum and you wanna go on a date you’re asking for someone to be the father of your child. And that’s not true. You’re just like, I just want to go on a date and have a good time and see what happens next. People don’t often give a chance to single mums,” the chef, who lives in Warracknabeal in Victoria, has said in the past.

And yes, Chanel has met Mary’s new Paradise beau, Conor Canning, as the couple revealed in some adorable new family photos, which you can check out below.

Mary admits having a young daughter has made dating hard, but she’s hopeful of finding love in Paradise.

“The struggle is real… I am 32 so I am not looking for a fling. I am going into Paradise looking for someone that actually wants a relationship,” Mary explained.
