Married at First Sight couple share their heartbreaking loss.


Our thoughts are with Alex and Zoe.

Alex and Zoe – one of the two successful couples to come out of the first Australian season of Married at First Sight – have shared their heartbreaking story of miscarriage.

Alex, 29, told A Current Affair he was thrilled to learn Zoe, his partner of one year, was pregnant.

“Zoe and me did have good news to share,” he said.

‘Zoe fell pregnant. And we just didn’t basically want to say anything because obviously we hadn’t reached that 12, 13 week mark. And it was the best news I’ve ever heard, to be frank with you.

“I was so happy I couldn’t wait to share it with the rest of Australia. But, unfortunately, Zoe had a miscarriage and so it didn’t work out the way we were planning.”

Zoe, 25, said the tragedy would bring the couple closer together.

“As sad as it is, I guess to have such happiness and then to have such sadness… We also know that there are lots of people that have had this happen to them,” she said.

“And we can only hope that it will build our love more and will make us really appreciate each other and that this is what we want.”

The cute couple, who have two dogs, said they have lived together “for a while now” and were looking to buy a house together.

Alex revealed they also got tattoos of each other.

He said he was planning on proposing to Zoe “one day” but had compromised in the meantime – by moving his motorbike from the spare room to the garage.
