Married At First Sight alum Melissa Rawson has revealed the one comment she hates hearing as a mother of twins.

The 32-year-old, who shares 11-month-old boys Levi and Tate with her fiancé Bryce Ruthven, said she often gets asked if she has a “favourite” twin.

While Melissa said this question “doesn’t bother” her too much, it’s a follow-up remark she often receives that grinds her gears.

Melissa said she hates the insinuation her babies are hard work.

“This doesn’t bother me too much but I don’t have a favourite twin, I definitely would never ever ever. I love them both,” she said.

“But I do get [people saying], ‘ooh double trouble’ or ‘I’m so sorry’ or ‘it must be such hard work, you must be so tired’.”

The mum-of-two said she couldn’t have gotten luckier with Levi and Tate, who turn one on October 16.

“My babies sleep up to 12 hours a night every night, don’t wake, they self soothe, they are happy 85 per cent of the time unless they’re sick, teething or tired,” she explained.

“My babies smile at everybody, they will go up to everybody. Even with COVID, they love people. Honestly I didn’t want kids before MAFS but I don’t know how I got so lucky.

“Honestly, I correct people when they [say], ‘ooh, double trouble’.”

Melissa previously confessed she only began to enjoy motherhood in August after feeling like she was “drowning” in her twins’ newborn phase.

“Don’t get me wrong, I love my babies with every fiber of my being. But let’s be real. Being a parent is so tough,” she said at the time.

“It wasn’t until after the boys turned 8 months old – this was the turning point for me. Levi and Tate’s little personalities started to shine (and are very different!).

“They were able to really smile, babble, reach out and pull your hair/cheeks during cuddles, rolling over, playing with toys, jumping in their bouncer and non-stop giggling. I’ve loved this new development phase and motherhood just got so much easier.”
