Love is Blind is long over but the revelations coming out of the show are still going strong! While some couples, like Kelly Chase and Kenny Barnes, didn’t make it or even stay in contact after the show, others thrived and are still together.
One such couple is Amber Pike and Matt Barnett. To be honest, I really didn’t think this couple was even going to say “I do”. Between Amber’s immaturity and financial problems, to Barnett’s family seemingly turning their nose up at Amber, it just didn’t seem like a good match from the start. But I’ve been wrong before and I will be wrong again – right now actually. Amber and Barnett are still going strong. Now, they’re dishing about some of the drama they faced behind the scenes of the show.
In a recent interview with Screen Rant, Amber admits that they thought she might have conceived after getting intimate on their pre-honeymoon in Mexico. She says of the incident, “Yeah. Surprise, world! It was a very close call, there was almost a Love Is Blind baby.”
She continues, “Literally, when we got back from Mexico, we had already had our first pregnancy scare. Because I was two weeks late, and it turns out it was just because of all of the stress of the show and planning the wedding, and I was freaking out.” Barnett adds, “I was freaking out, as well.”
Either way, the couple remains together and better than ever, despite the show being filmed almost two years ago. And even though they weren’t prepared for a baby back then, Amber is already looking ahead when it comes to kids. She joked on the show that she wanted to have 18 kids and says, “I told Matt I was willing to birth three and he could give birth to the rest of them.”
It’s unclear if they kept this a secret from production or if they knew about it and it never aired. I’m going to assume it was the former. The producers probably wanted every single ounce of drama they could get out of these couples.

But pregnancy scare aside, it sounds like Amber and Barnett have settled into married life nicely. Apparently, they are enjoying time with their dog and spending their self-quarantine watching plenty of movies. Barnett also enjoys playing Call of Duty while Amber likes to read romance novels. They have no baby plans as of yet but with all this isolation, it wouldn’t be crazy if we did get that Love Is Blind baby 9 months from now.
