Married at First Sight: Deonna and Greg’s Bundle of Joy
Back in September 2020, the MAFS alum announced that they were expecting their first child together. Both instilling confidence in each other that they will be great parents. In an interview with E! News, Deonna expresses excitement, “I think Greg is going to be a great dad on an account of how he takes care of those around him. “He’s very caring, has a huge heart and he really puts it out there on his sleeve.”
Greg expresses his trust in Deonna’s parenting skills as well, “Deonna is very nurturing. She’s been a mother to everybody in her life—me included.” Greg revealed the baby’s gender in a separate photo on his Instagram page. In the picture, Greg kisses Deonna on the head as she caresses her belly. Captioning the image with, “The wait is FINALLY OVER! We’re having a BOY! He’ll be here any day now (feels like Deonna has been pregnant forever…and she agrees). Beyond blessed to be getting ready to welcome our son into the world.”
Expect Some Privacy Once The Baby Is Born
The dynamic duo has kept fans entertained by making appearances on Married at First Sight: Couples Cam. However, fans are going to have to be ready for the couple to go private once their son arrives. “We definitely don’t want a lot of pictures out there or videos out there especially in the beginning,” Greg previously shared with E! News. “We want to limit his or her’s exposure to social media.”
Deonna agrees and adds, “We signed up to be public figures, but our child really didn’t so to be able to keep some things private and to ourselves will allow for our child to be able to make those decisions when they grow up: Is this something you want to be a part of? Yes or no?” Fans definitely get where they’re coming from.
Let’s hope they don’t hold out with the pictures for too long. With Greg and Deonna as parents, their son is going to be a straight cutie. Congratulations to the happy couple!
