This couple is the proof we needed that a happy ending after Seven's First Dates is possible.

There’s not much that’s wrong with hilarious dating show First Dates: it’s fun to watch, those who fail to find love on the show get to come back for a second chance, and there are a diverse range of couples shown on screen.

But if we had to pick one thing that irks us a little, it’s the fact that there are no real, lasting love stories that have come out of the show.


With news earlier this week that Aussie couple Grace and George were NOT actually together after meeting on the show (despite the end credits of the episode telling us otherwise), we need a good First Dates love story.

We may have had to look as far as the UK to find one, but a couple who met on the show have just announced they are expecting their first child.

Ibiba Mudada and Aarron Stewart met on the UK version of the show, and realised it was love after just three dates.


"Everything was quite intense," Ibiba told The Mirror.

"When I found out I was pregnant I wasn't sure how he'd react. It was so soon. We were getting into bed and I said, 'There's a baby in my belly - what's going on?' but he seemed really happy."

The pair - who are already single parents to three children between them before meeting - plan to move in together soon and will welcome their first child together in April.

"I can't wait to go back to the [First Dates] restaurant with our new baby and show Fred, the maître d'," Aarron said.

This definitely gives us hope for the remaining episodes of the latest season of First Dates Australia - bring on the babies!
