Married at First Sight alumni Susan Rawlings has just welcomed her first child – a beautiful baby boy named Ashton.
Sharing her story with Woman’s Day, Rawlings, 39, told the publication that she was in labour for three whole days before giving birth to Ashton via caesarean on March 24th.
However, having spent the past two months with her new son, she’s thrilled to be a new mum and will be raising Ashton without his father.
“I never imagined I’d be anyone’s mummy,” Rawlings told the publication.
“I can’t imagine going back to my old life now, because I need to be here full-time to watch every new smile and milestone.”
“I find myself sitting and waiting for one of his almost-smiles all the time!”
“From the moment Ashton was born, I loved him selflessly and unconditionally. I can’t imagine going back to my old life now!” Bravely going it alone, #MAFS star Susan Rawlings couldn’t be happier with her life as a new mum as she introduces us to her beautiful little boy!

The 39-year-old chose not identify Ashton’s biological father, but said that she met the older man online and they dated for a few months. Susan didn’t discover that she was pregnant until weeks after they ended their relationship. Despite this, they remain friends.
“Ashton was unplanned, but I’m very much looking forward to sharing this parenting journey as I’m friends with his father,” she said.
