The former Married At First Sight bride, 32, who is still in a relationship with her on-screen husband Michael Brunelli, took to Instagram on Sunday to thank her followers for the last 12 months.

“I know I don’t normally write big captions, but this is an exception. ⁣⁣The positivity you guys bring to my life is unmatched. Whether it’s someone rushing to my defense in the comments, or your votes for the E People’s choice award. I feel like I have my very own army!” she captioned a selfie.⁣⁣⁣

Martha, who is set to star on this year’s season of Celebrity Apprentice, added that 2021 “is going to be WILD with a new show and business plans” and admitted that a small part of herself is scared and anxious but knows deep down that she has the support of her fans.

“There are days I spend hours talking to people in my DMs. I’ve never met them, but I feel so connected to them… sometimes even more than my own friends. But that’s just how much I value and trust your support.

“I get so many personal questions and I will always try to find the time to help, I love it. Nothing is more rewarding that knowing I’ve made a little difference! So thank you for sharing your stories with me and I promise to continue to share mine with you all. I love letting you into my world, my relationship, and my family. I never claim to be perfect or the greatest role model by any means, but I am true to myself and I don’t feel the need to bulls*** you all.”

Michael shared his own message of thanks to everyone who supported him and Martha in 2020, adding that “all of you mean a helluva lot to us!”

“You’ve supported us as individuals and in our relationship and we are forever grateful for it! The amount of positive comments and DMs we get is crazy! We do try to get back to as many as possible, but unfortunately it does take a lot of time. So to everyone that hasn’t heard back from us, know that we still appreciate it and hope you keep supporting!⁣⁣”

The former MAFS groom thanked fans for fighting back against online trolls, and said they love their fans for sharing their sense of humour and being “absolute savages when you need to be.”

“We pride ourselves on being real with you. We don’t try to make out that we live in this perfect little world. We argue, fight and throw tantrums just like everyone else! And we hope you can see that, because there’s nothing worse than a couple bulls***ting their relationship for attention,” Michael explained.

As one of the few remaining couples from MAFS, Michael and Martha have faced marriage and baby rumours since they first got together.

In December, the pair sent fans wild when Michael commented a series of telling emojis on Martha’s Instagram birthday post to him including an engagement ring, a baby bottle, a house and a face with a cheeky hand over its mouth, hinting that they will soon be expanding their family.

“GIVE US THE BABIES CMON GUYS,” one fan exclaimed.

“Bring on the triplets,” joked another.

“I’d love to see Martha’s pregnant style!” remarked a third.

Both Martha and Michael are set to star in the upcoming Married At First Sight All Stars reunion special and according to the So Dramatic! podcast, they’re going to be making some bank from it.

“Michael and Martha reportedly got the most, about $15K between them, which is huge,” host Megan Pustetto revealed.

Returning contestants Jessika Power, Cyrell Paule, Nasser Sultan and Dean Wells are just some of the other big names making a comeback as well. We can’t wait!
