Married At First Sight's Ally Acklan and Paul Todd have made show history by welcoming a baby daughter.

The pair had met through the Channel 4 programme but never went on the show, instead falling in love in private amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

While fans may not recognise the couple, they are officially the first to come out of the programme and have a child together just one year after meeting.

The couple, who are from Weston-Super-Mare, took to their joint YouTube channel to introduce the "precious cargo" with their legion of fans, announcing her name is Penelope Carol Todd.

Dressed in a bright yellow dress, brunette beauty Ally, 35, told viewers that her baby girl was seven days overdue and explained: "The birth wasn’t easy, but it was a million times worth it…

"After being induced we went to the delivery suite. I was contracting like the clappers apparently. I had a trauma with the cannula.

"My heart rate was going up and had an emergency forceps delivery with an episiotomy.

"Sadly I had an infection, they weren't sure if it was sepsis, I went downhill really quickly. That was the scary part for Paul."

Paul, 33, confessed he feared he would end up raising their child alone as he wasn't sure how bad the situation really was.

"I had no idea what was going on," he explained. "All I knew was something wasn't right. I was really worried. I was thinking, 'I can’t cope with a baby on my own.' I didn’t want to lose the love of my life."

The NHS team at St Michael’s Hospital in Bristol managed to get the situation under control, meaning Ally pulled through.

Ally and Paul went through the arduous task of applying to go on MAFS UK last year, but were left disappointed when their special day was cancelled due to the pandemic.

Refusing to give up, they asked TV producers to put them in touch with each other regardless of the programme and they've since fallen in love.
