Back in 2018, prison guard Eden rose to fame on the first season of Love Island Australia where he met and fell for nurse Erin Barnett. 

The couple were crowned the runners-up of the dating show but announced their break up a few short months later.

We can’t thank each and everyone of you enough, for the support and love you have shown us, but we have to be honest within ourselves as we realise that our forever as a couple, is no longer,” Erin penned on Instagram at the time.

But in April 2019, Eden was spotted getting cosy with Cyrell Paule – one of the breakout stars of Married At First Sight 2019 – whom he met at Cyrell’s MAFS co-star Jules Robinson’s birthday bash.

“He’s a cool guy… we’re seeing each other,” Cyrell later confirmed on MAFS’ spinoff show Talking Married.

“He’s one of those guys who’s so attractive that at first I was like, ‘no’, but then you talk, and it grows.”

Just five months after going public with their romance, Cyrell and Eden dropped the huge news that they were expecting a child together.

In an exclusive chat with New IdeaEden admitted that he was completely taken by surprise when Cyrell texted him to inform him of the pregnancy.

“I didn’t know what to feel. I was a bit in shock and took a while to process it. Then we spoke and I said, ‘Whatever you want to do, I’ll support you and be there for the child,'” he said at the time before the excitement kicked in.

Eden also hit back at critics who would claim his and Cyrell’s baby was a publicity stunt.

“They’ll say we got pregnant to stay relevant or to extend our 15 minutes of fame. It’s very stressful and stress can cause bad things to happen,” he explained at the time.

The couple later threw a gender reveal party and learned that they would be having a baby boy.

However, just weeks after the party Cyrell and Eden confirmed they’d broken up with the couple sharing the news on their respective Instagram pages in October 2019.

“Even if it’s just you and me. We’ll create our own happiness. #mylittleprince #myoneandonly,” Cyrell captioned a photo of herself cradling her baby bump.

“Parents can be separated and still do a great job at co parenting. As long as you’re a great role model for your son that’s all that matters,” Eden wrote on his post.

Not long afterwards, Eden was spotted with Instagram model Nicole Shiraz but Nicole slammed claims that they were an item.

“It’s always been just a good friendship because I did meet him when he was in a relationship,” she told NW.

However it didn’t take long for Cyrell and Eden to patch things up and the pair were spotted on a romantic date night in December and also celebrated New Year’s Eve together.

“You’re the reason why Panadol was invented, and the definition next to migraine. But I love you,” Cyrell wrote in an Instagram post.

We’re having a baby together and at the end of the day— first and foremost our priority is our son and we always want to be a family,” Cyrell later explained to Daily Mail Australia on the reason for their reconciliation. 

“I want our son to be in a happy family… it’s not long now only two months, it’s just flown,” Eden added.

In February 2020, Eden and Cyrell welcomed their baby boy and revealed his name Boston Eden Dally three weeks later.

“Eden wanted the name Cruz at first. But my sister took it,” Cyrell told New Idea.

“We did a few Instagram posts asking people for help with the name and we saw a lot of people recommending Cruz. So we didn’t feel like it was that unique after all.”

Eden added: “I think Boston sounds better. It’s very unique. He’s got the middle name Eden so he’s definitely going places! It’s a tradition. I’ve got my father’s name and my dad got his dad’s name.”

In September 2020, Eden celebrated his first Father’s Day as a dad sharing a photo of himself and Boston with the caption:”My first Father’s Day what a feeling I love this little boy more then anything in the world.” 

Cyrell also penned a heartfelt tribute to Eden with a video montage of her partner and baby boy.

“Happy 1st Father’s Day my love @dallyeden. Thank you for being such an amazing human being. Everyday u make us proud and everyday is always special with you. Love you forever …,” she penned.

And in the lead up to Boston’s first birthday, Cyrell reflected on the miracle of childbirth as she shared footage from her labour.

“No pain can compare. But the magic that comes at the end. Makes it all worth it. The female body is phenomenal. How bout that scream though. #almosthisfirstbirthday #themagicofpregnancy @bostonejdally.” she captioned the post.
