Farmer Wants A Wife contestant Hayley Love, who was competing on the show for farmer Matt Trewin‘s heart, has said she is pregnant with Will Dwyer‘s kid, another farmer on the show. File this one under reality TV news I cannot keep up with, holy shit.
In a statement to News.com.au on Thursday, Hayley claimed she started dating Will a little while after the show’s finale was filmed in December. However, things apparently went to shit by April, and the couple are no longer together.
On the show, Hayley was booted after she failed to find love with Matt, while Will went to the end with contestant Jaimee.
“I am 22 weeks pregnant with Farmer Will’s child,” Hayley told News.com.au.
“I started my relationship with Farmer Will in December, before the reunion episode was filmed a few weeks later in January. He told me he wasn’t with Jaimee and Jaimee was in contact with me before the reunion.
“We’d started chatting online. [Then] I visited him at his house in Longwood and when our sexual relationship started, he told me he had feelings for me and I had feelings for him. From there, I saw him as often as I could, staying at his house for a few days at a time.”
It’s unclear what exactly went wrong between the two, but News.com.au understands that Will will appear in the reunion episode with Jamiee, so, uh, make of that what you will.
Hayley said she found out she was six weeks pregnant after she and Will split in April, adding that she was surprised by his reaction to the pregnancy.
“It was a very quick phone call where he said ‘Yeah well we kinda knew that you were pregnant’. I said ‘no worries, I just thought you should know’,” Hayley shared.
“I’ve tried to keep things amicable with him, to be clear on what his involvement with our child will be. I’ve asked him to all the appointments and he did come to the ultrasound.”
Hayley said that she chose to come out with the news herself to clear up all the rumours surrounding the pregnancy.
“I am speaking my truth before it gets misconstrued by the public and tabloids who don’t know the full story,” she said.
“This is my story to tell.”
In a statement to News.com.au, Channel 7 wished Hayley all the best for her pregnancy and life ahead.
