Greg and Deonna put their trust in Married at First Sight show experts to find them a soulmate. It quickly became apparent they were a match made in Heaven.
As the season 9 couple celebrated their one-month anniversary, Deonna exclaimed, “I honestly feel like God led me to Greg. This is the beginning of our forever. This is the beginning of our beautiful love story.”
Now, a year and a half later, the Okotie’s have announced the birth of their first child.
“We are so blessed and excited to welcome our baby boy, Declan into the world,” they revealed to RealiTVwithBee.
Declan Okotie was born on February 27, 2021, at 8:44 pm and weighing 6lbs 9oz.
Greg shared in an Instagram reveal, “He came into the world over the weekend and it was quite the journey (36 hours of labor)!”
The couple states they are all healthy, doing well and, “just happy to be home as a family of three!”
On February 24, 2021, the Okotie’s were thrilled to reveal the gender of their baby. “We’re blessed and overjoyed to be welcoming a baby boy into the world and the third little boy into the MAFS family,” they said.
Joining the ever-growing Married at First Sight family, little Declan is the 8th baby in the MAFS group!
Looking back, Greg told RealiTVwithBee in an exclusive interview, one thing he did to help his wife become more comfortable with him during the accelerated process of the experiment.
“I gave her a letterbox filled with letters that she read each day in the first two weeks of our marriage. These letters were a way to help start her day in order to provide encouragement. It also gave her a bit of insight into some things about me,” he shared.
