After getting matched together by the experts on MAFs in 2021, Johnny and Kerry’s relationship has continued to grow from strength to strength.

The pair tied the knot in January 2023 and have been candid in their experiences of starting a family.

“We weren’t one of those lucky couples that fell pregnant straight away,” Kerry told 9Entertainment.

”We had a taste of what having no answers for month after month was like and it was really tough. I don’t think anyone understands that level of disappointment unless you’ve been through it.

“We felt disappointment as a couple, but also [I did] as a woman.”
