Congratulations are in order for Married at First Sight stars Danielle Bergman and Bobby Dodd! The couple, who announced that they were expecting in October 2018 ahead of the season 7 reunion special, have officially welcomed their first child, a daughter, together. Us Weekly confirmed the happy news with the married couple and helped them introduce their baby girl to the world. Her name is Olivia Nicole and at 6 pounds, 2 ounces and 19 inches long, she’s the cutest little bundle of joy.
On Instagram, the new parents shared photos of Olivia as well as words of their own excitement. “Thank you all for all of the kind words,” they wrote to fans. “It will be so fun to share with her one day how highly anticipated she was! #olivianicoledodd #mafs” In another post, they shared Bobby all snuggled up with his little girl and the family pup. “Besties,” the couple captioned the pic, adding the hashtag #threebestfriendsthatanyonecouldhave.
In the comments, their fellow MAFS stars congratulated them with sweet words of their own. “She’s so precious,” wrote fellow mom and reality star Jamie Otis. “Congrats.” On another post, she continued, “You thought you wanted a boy … but little did you know having a daddy’s girl is gonna melt. Your. Heart. Congrats, Bobby! She’s beautiful!” Ashley Petta also weighed in, sharing a heart eye emoji, while Anthony D’Amico wrote, “She looks good on you, bro!”
We were first introduced to the couple back in July 2018, and it seems they’ve started a pretty happy life together since they first appeared on the show. While appearing on TV, they had a few disagreements about what their lives would look like if and when they started having kids, but now they’re learning on the fly. “It seems like he really wants his wife to stay home and take care of kids — that’s something we’re very different on,” Danielle said at the time, but Bobby eventually put her worries to rest when he assured her, “I’m not trying to have this 1950s lifestyle in 2018. … Whatever it is that you want to do, I want to help you meet those goals.”
It looks like they’ve met at least one goal — starting their family! We can’t wait to continue following their journey as their daughter learns and grows.
