The Sunshine Coast couple already have daughters Harper, five and Imogen, three, and have admitted it’s been hard to watch them grow up so fast.
“Harper started school this year,” said Shayn.
“Imogen, I think she’s got one more year of kindergarten, so they’re nearly both at school, so it’s nearly no daycare fees and all that stuff. But I don’t know. Where have our babies gone? They’re growing up!”
The couple admit it hasn’t been easy competing on House Rules and leaving their kids with Shayn’s mum in Queensland.
“It was our choice, you know, we are doing this for the girls,” Carly says. “But I don’t think anything could actually have prepared us for just how much it was going to take a toll. When you’re in the middle of the reno, you definitely think about them all the time.
"They’re in the back of my mind and I’m like, ‘Well, they’re why I’m here so keep going, keep going!’”
“The good thing with Shayn and I, we had a very strong relationship before even going on the show,” Carly reasons.
“I think what House Rules has done for us has actually just cemented that, if not made us stronger.
“I’ve seen a different side to Shayn,” Carly adds. “He’s probably seen a different side to me, and yeah it’s cemented, probably, our love for each other, as clichéd as that is.
