The Bachelor alum opened up on Tuesday during a conversation on his podcast The Babble, stating that he’s begun noticing a pattern of rumours surrounding bachelor and Bachelorette couples.

“The breaking story is, ‘oh my gosh, they’re in love” and then that narrative can only play out for so long before someone has to throw some salacious rumours in the mix,” he said.

Listing all the potential rumours, Matty – who celebrated the birth of his first child with fiancée Laura Byrne earlier this year – said pregnancy rumours would be next.

“First, they’re amazing. Then there’s stories of they didn’t want to pick anyone and ‘are they still together?’ And then the next rumour that will come out is that Angie’s pregnant,” he said.

Matty went on to state that he believes that Carlin and Angie are still together and said it was “lovely to see”.

“They’re on holiday at the moment somewhere overseas. And they are posting lots together. There are lots of Instagram Stories, so they’re still going very strong,” he said.

Matty’s outburst comes after fans speculated as to whether Angie and Carlin’s romance was a sham.

Just days after Carlin hit back at claims Angie only appeared on the show to promote her new memoir If You Don’t Laugh You’ll Cry, the couple were been flaunting their romance on their current holiday in Vietnam.

And last week Carlin spoke to the Daily Mail to clear up claims that his former Gogglebox star girlfriend only agreed to appear on The Bachelorette to boost her career.

“I had watched a few episodes of Angie on Gogglebox,” Carlin said at the 29-year-old’s Sydney book launch over the weekend. “She’s exactly who she is now, which is just awesome.”
