Either I’ve been living under a rock or MAFS Tracey Jewel has just fallen off our radar, but she’s just given birth to a beautiful boy!

You may remember Tracey from the 2018 season of Married At First Site and unfortunately was paired with Dean (iiiickkk!). But things are looking might brighter for Tracey now with a new bub. Did you know she got MARRIED?! But for real this time. Honestly, Tracey has been busy and I have not been paying attention, sorry Tracey.

Overwhelmed with love for her new bub, who they named Frankie, Tracey said to WHO “He is such a little dream. He’s eating, sleeping and feeding so well, we just adore him.”

At 38-years-old, she said her pregnancy was quite complicated as she struggled with an irritable uterus which basically gives you a false feeling of labour. So, unfortunately, she was a regular at the hospital.

She was also bedridden for the last two month of her pregnancy and ended up having a C-section three weeks earlier than planned. “He had some breathing difficulties when he was born, so he was in the neonatal intensive care unit for a week,” says Jewel.

“That was so hard because I hardly got to cuddle him and he was bottle-fed my expressed breast milk. He also had a tongue-tie, so he had a bit of a rough start.”

Thankfully, Frankie is happy and healthy now that he’s returned to his Perth home. Congratulations to Tracey and her family on the arrival of her new bub!
