Married at First Sight star announces engagement

A former Married at First Sight star has finally found her happily ever after.

Melbourne journalist Melissa, who was paired with John on the popular reality TV show, took to Instagram on Thursday to reveal she’s happily engaged to her new man Fred Whitson.

“When the man you are in love with proposes, you say YES” Mel wrote alongside a photo of her bling.


Mel’s fellow Married at First Sight pals were quick to send their love to the soon-to-be bride.

“Yay Mel! So glad to hear. Fred your a top fella!” Ryan Gallagher wrote.

“Naww congratulations guys. This is the best!” Telv commented.

Melissa announced in March that she and her on-screen husband John had parted ways due to “significant differences in our lives and expectations in relationships.”

“It has been a very difficult decision and it makes us both very sad to say we have decided to no longer continue as a couple,” John and Melissa wrote in a statement at the time.
