‘First Dates’ often has us in squirming fits of romantic awe – or just pure awkwardness. Though never are we more impressed than by a blind date that goes on to form a successful relationship.
Imagine our delight, therefore, to learn of this happy news: ‘First Dates’ has officially welcomed its very first baby.
Ibiba Mudada and Aarron Stewart, who met on the show last year, welcomed their daughter together, Aziza, in April. She weighed a healthy 9lbs 4oz.
The couple already have three children– aged 10, nine and six – between them from previous relationships. They now plan on getting married.
“When I found out I was pregnant I wasn’t sure how he’d react. It was so soon,” Ibiba, 28, said. “We were getting into bed and I said, ‘There’s a baby in my belly – what’s going on?’ but he seemed really happy.”
Speaking to the Mail On Sunday, she continued: “It’s true that our meeting and the speed with which we’ve started a family is certainly far from traditional.
“Things got serious after the third date. Everything was quite intense. Then we went bowling and he met one of my best friends, who told me, ‘He’s a good ’un!’”
