Cheryl Maitland‘s boyfriend fell in love with her after watching Married at First Sight.
Like many of us, Dean Gibbs, 31, watched Cheryl’s suitors Jonathan Troughton and Andrew ‘Jonesy’ Jones fail to win her over.
And after sending the reality star a message, the plumber got lucky.
“Thank God for MAFS!” Dean told NW in a joint interview with Cheryl.
Cheryl was equally enthused discussing his wooing tactic.
“He’d seen me on the show and just sent me a really long message, not really expecting anything. Then it just kind of…One thing led to another, I guess,” she told the publication. “We’re in love! I’m just, like, this is too good to be true!”
Dean, a former police officer and convicted felon, had previously met Cheryl through mutual friends in Melbourne but lost touch until recently.
“It wasn’t really anything at the time when we first met, but then he’d kind of seen me on the show,” Cheryl revealed.
Dean added: “I was actually happy for her at the time, but we weren’t in a relationship, of course. I know how stunning that girl looks in a white dress, though…Wow!”
And it looks like Cheryl’s ready to walk down the aisle again.
“Obviously, we wouldn’t be together if we didn’t see a future together [but] I would do a completely different kind of dress [for our wedding] – probably not the white dress I wore on MAFS. And I could probably wear heels this time because we’re both tall!”
The pair also posed for a shoot with the magazine. Sharing a preview on Instagram, Cheryl wrote: “First shoot with BUBBY ♥️ @nwmag thank you for capturing these moments 💑…”
But, in reference to the magazine cover – which boldly reads “Cheryl’s having a baby!” – the brunette clarified, “PS no we are not having a baby 😅… It’s a food baby! Not pregnant yet!”
