Before Ines, Martha and Jess made their indelible mark on Married at First Sight, there was another TV villain Australia will never forget.

Davina Rankin, 28, blew the reality juggernaut out of the water when she shacked up with Dean Wells behind her TV-husband, Ryan’s, back.

But now, after finding a new kind of love with café owner Jaxon Manuel, the part-time model has more than moved on – revealing to Woman’s Day she’s expecting her first baby!

“I haven’t felt too beautiful lately, it’s been a very long three months,” says Davina, explaining she’s suffering with intense morning sickness which has caused her weight to plummet by six kilos since falling pregnant.

“I’m throwing up all day,” she sighs.

The brunette beauty says she and Jaxon have known each other “for ever and ever” and the proud mum-to-be is certain he’ll be the perfect father to their bub.

“He’s got two gorgeous nephews who he spends a lot of time with, he’s a really loving and caring person.”

While the former reality star became a household name thanks to MAFS, it appears instant matrimony is now a thing of the past for the We Love Brunch founder.

“We’re not engaged yet. I beat him to the commitment thing – whoops looks like he’s stuck with me,” Davina quips.

“We definitely talk about it all the time, but our next step will be to buy a house; we’re in the market now looking for a home… just knuckling down to look for a family.”
