Congrats! Married at First Sight season 9 favorites Deonna McNeill and Greg Okotie have welcomed their first child together.
McNeill made the announcement via Instagram. “Over the weekend our little bundle of joy entered the world after a long 36hrs of labor!” she captioned a couple of snaps of the newborn and the happy couple in the hospital after the birth.
“Say hello to Declan Okotie aka Baby O,” she gushed, adding, “We love him so much already!💙. Thank you for all of the well wishes and blessings. Everyone is doing great and getting adjusted to our new normal.” The reality TV star added that Sandy, their golden retriever, “ABSOLUTELY loves her brother.”
Fans and friends were quick to shower the new parents with love. "Wow so handsome, 💕congratulations, 🎉 get ready to really be tired, 😴 boys are a lot of energy!" Taylor Dunkin, who stars on the current season of MAFS, wrote. Another user said, "Beautiful baby boy! Congrats!!"
Baby Declan arrived on February 27. Fans have been watching McNeill and Okotie’s journey to parenthood on the latest season of Married at First Sight: Couples Cam.
McNeill announced in September 2020 that she and her husband had a little one on the way. “It’s true, we’re expanding our family!!” the then-pregnant star captioned their Instagram reveal.
“What a blessing?! Thank you all for all of the well wishes and blessings on our family. Yay! [Our dog], Sandy, is going to be a big sister!”
Fellow MAFS alum Jamie Otis commented, “CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! I’m so happy for you guys!!!! I guess you talked Greg into it,” while Ashley Petta wrote that she was “so excited” for the couple.
In 2019, viewers fell in love with McNeill and Okotie as they put their trust in the hands of three experts during season 9 of the hit Lifetime reality series Married at First Sight. Mere moments after meeting for the first time, the two said “I do” and have since built a lasting relationship based on faith, trust and respect.
