Married At First Sight’s Coco Stedman gets candid about her previous marriage and ex–husband

''Sometimes it lasts in love and sometimes it hurts.''

In every new batch of Married At First Sight brides and grooms there's always one or two outspoken hopefuls who steal the spotlight.
As the 2021 season kicked off it was bride Coco who immediately found herself under that bright beam.
Bursting with energy, one of three words she unsurprisingly uses to describe herself with in her Instagram bio, Coco made a big first impression.
Now To Love may no longer be on Facebook but here's everywhere else you can find our addictive content:

"They've got to ride the Coco wave, surf's up baby!" Coco ecstatically said in the show's first episode when describing what she's looking for in a partner before adding: "I want someone to keep up with me but also I want somebody who grounds me."
The boisterous Pilates studio owner found herself in hot water on the "hens night" after making a comment about fellow Bride Samantha's 16-year age gap in her previous marriage.
"Mate, call the judge, that's a bit red hot isn't it. Can we get a check on that?" Coco said after discovering Samantha was 17 when she began dating her ex, who was 33 at the time.

Coco was also married before appearing on the show, with her nuptials lasting just six months.
"My last serious relationship was my marriage," Coco revealed of her dating life to Channel Nine.
"He was a beautiful, beautiful, beautiful soul. I wish him nothing but the best but sometimes it lasts in love and sometimes it hurts instead," she said of her ex before adding: "I chose my career."
While things may be amicable between Coco and her ex, the bride puts the split down to "always" feeling second best to her mother-in-law.

It appears Coco tied the knot in September 2018 with the 30-year-old sharing multiple stunning photographs from her wedding day to Instagram.

Let's hope Coco's TV marriage brings her much more happiness.
