He entered the show as a 29-year-old virgin but now it seems that Matthew Bennett is jumping leaps and bounds in the intimacy sector after news came out this morning that he is expecting a baby with his wife on the show, Lauren.
According to NW magazine, the couple that met for the first time down the aisle last October are expecting a baby together.
“This is way beyond anything that I could have expected or hoped for,” Matt reportedly told the magazine about his relationship with Lauren.
“I’m finding it hard to imagine a time where I didn’t know her.”
The Queensland-based videographer continued to tell the publication that he has always wanted to start a family.
“I feel like being a dad is the opportunity to help build someone better than me, to pass on the lessons I’ve learnt and help them become better than I ever could be,” he told the mag.
“It’s hard to put into words actually how important this is.”
“Facing that fear made me realise it doesn’t have to be as scary as you build up in your head – they say growth lies outside of your comfort zone,” he admitted.
“My parents got engaged within three weeks of meeting and they’ve been married for 30 years, so I guess it was always something in my head that I wanted to do with my life.”
Matthew also told NW magazine during an interview that he wants to have a big family and won’t stop at just one baby.
“I don’t know an exact number, but I grew up with a sister and it was always good having someone,” he said. “Basically your sister becomes one of your best friends, so I always thought I’d have at least two kids.”
While he expressed to the publication that he can’t wait to be an “active and involved dad”, Matthew expressed that his parents were just as enthusiastic about the news that they are expecting a child.
“They’re absolutely keen to be grandparents,” Matt said. “My mum has wanted to be a grandmother for so long.”
