Michael and KC might have been unlucky in love during their time on the recent season of Married At First Sight, but that doesn’t mean that they didn’t find love after the show!

While married to different people on the show, Michael and KC are actually together now and by the looks of things they couldn’t be happier.

In fact, while they haven’t been dating for all too long, Michael and KC are actually living together and they told Kyle and Jackie O this morning that they’re in love!

“Oh we’re living together,” KC told us. “We went straight in.”

While they’re in love now, of course we were certainly wondering how this relationship actually started. After all, Michael and KC didn’t have too many interactions during the show or any sort of affair.

Turns out they became quite good friends right after filming finished and started chatting and catching up.

“After the show, I went on a couple of dates with one guy and then that was it and then Michael was trying really hard to get me and I was like, ‘No I’m never going to date you’ and then it just happened,” explained KC.

So with KC flat out saying, ‘Nope, never going to happen’, how did these two end up an actual couple? Well persistence was key and Michael through out all the stops to try and win her over.

“I think Michael just doesn’t take no for an answer,” KC continued. “He was just like a dog with a bone, he was really pursuing me, I just didn’t want all the drama… And I don’t know then I just caved in and now I’m happy.”

Eventually they went on their first date, but this wasn’t your average dinner and a movie situation. Nope Michael and KC went to see Elton John’s Rocketman concert for their first date.

And it was actually during one of Elton’s pretty darn emotional songs that Michael got up the nerve to ask KC to be his girlfriend.

“I actually took him to the Elton John concert, my friend actually gave me passes to his concert so we went there,” KC explained. “It was like the best date ever and that’s when we became boyfriend and girlfriend.”

“I didn’t know anything about it but KC was like, ‘He’s my favourite’ and I was like, ‘Oh my god that’s crazy he’s my favourite too’,’ Michael continued.

“It was like school when the church music comes on and you’re pretending to lip-sync. I was sitting there dancing and I didn’t even know who he was!”

“All Elton’s love songs got me so loved up and I guess Michael’s smart, that’s where he asked me out,” KC said. “How could I say no if he asks me out during ‘Candle In The Wind’.”

Genius! What girl could say no during that song? It’s PRINCESS DIANA’S FREAKING SONG! It’s emotional as heck! Smart move Michael, smart move.

It’s definitely a hell of a lot more romantic than the camp chair and cheese plate date that he planned for Stacey on MAFS anyway…

Michael and KC then went back and uh, consummated their newfound relationship if you know what we mean.

“That’s when the real Rocketman came out,” Michael joked.

Lovely.

But honestly it does sound like these two really have found love together! So good on them we guess because not many of the couples that the experts actually put together have found the same!
