Married At First Sight stars Amani Aliyya and Woody Randall were fan favorites after they wed as strangers during Season 11. Amani works with a non-profit, while Woody is a high school teacher and coach. And, may I add, a flashy dresser.
The couple tied the knot in New Orleans and is one of the two couples from that season that are still married. This MAFS duo exhibited sizzling chemistry during their wedding reception, and it just grew from there. Of course, there were some bumps in the road to happily ever after. Woody lost his wedding ring in the pool during their honeymoon. Kudos to Amani for not losing her mind.
On decision day, Woody told his wife that he never dreamed that he could have a marriage like this, and he wanted to stay married. When it was Amani’s turn to speak, she dropped the news that she wanted a divorce. Thankfully, it was a joke.
The couple’s loving remarks to each other moved the show’s experts, Dr. Pepper Schwartz, Dr. Viviana Coles, and Pastor Calvin Roberson to tears. And at the reunion, Woody melted my heart when he gave Amani a new wedding ring, so that she would have one that was from him.
E! News reported that Woody and Amani are expecting their first baby. “We’re so blessed to be able to embark on this journey of parenthood as we celebrate our second anniversary together. We found out I was pregnant after I was about eight weeks,” Amani said in a statement. “I had been feeling pretty sick after a visit to Los Angeles for filming for the MAFS Boston Special. I assumed it was food poisoning from ahi tuna, but Woody hoped I was expecting.”
Amani took a pregnancy test which came back negative. She was still feeling ill, so Woody suggested she take another test. It was positive.
Amani explained, “I reluctantly took another test one Saturday morning and yelled for him to come in the bathroom. He smiled and said, ‘What, are you pregnant?’ I nodded and handed him the positive pregnancy test. He smiled so big!” the mom-to-be added.
Woody posted a video on Instagram to celebrate his anniversary with Amani, and their baby. The pregnancy photos were beautiful. “Everyday of this journey has been well worth it. I’m looking forward to these next steps sweets,” Woody wrote. “Love you, and my lil baby.”
Amani shared a sweet post on her Instagram. She posted a maternity photo, along with the caption, “Today makes 24 months I’ve been married to the love of my life, Woodrow Randall. The biggest gift of all is being 24 weeks pregnant with the new love of our life,” Amani wrote. “Baby Randall coming June 2022! #therandallway #therandallwayplusone #babyloading #blacklove.”
The parents-to-be were showered with congratulatory comments from their MAFS family. “Aww!! Congrats!!! This is gorgeous!! So happy for y’all!!” Deonna McNeill said.
