Just over a week after welcoming their twin boys into the world, Married At First Sight’s Bryce Ruthven and Melissa Rawson have finally announced their sons’ names.

The engaged couple revealed on Monday that they’ve named their newborns Levi and Tate.

“We wanted unique names that had a modern feel to them,” Bryce told New Idea.

“We also wanted names that promote positivity for them and our new family. Levi means ‘harmony among others’ and Tate means ‘cheerful’ so it suits them perfectly.”

Melissa added: “We had some other names in mind, but we always came back to those two.”


The reality TV couple previously spoke to A Current Affair in August about their ‘unique’ name ideas for their children.

“We’ve got a list of about 10 boy and girl names, and because we’re having twins, we need two of each. So yeah, I think we're pretty set," Melissa explained.

“Very unique names and I guess that's kind of a real testament to our relationship,” Bryce said.

The name announcement comes shortly after Bryce and Melissa shared an update with fans last week on the health of their twin sons, who were born 10 weeks earlier than expected.

Melissa took to Instagram to post a selfie from the hospital alongside a heartfelt caption about the experience of giving birth to her “tiny little fighters” prematurely.

“I could never have prepared myself for what premmie babies and their families go through,” she wrote.

“Or any parent where their bubby is struggling with life after birth or decide to leave this earth and grow their angel wings.

“The tears never stop and I wish more than anything they were home with us. But I know they are in the best of care.”

Bryce re-shared her story, adding, “She’s already a great mother. Myself and the twins are lucky to have her!”.

The 32-year-old also posted a video visiting his sons in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU).

“Love spending time with our two little boys. They’re being very well looked after by the NICU nurses,” he captioned the clip.

The couple announced the exciting news that they had welcomed their twins into the world with an adorable video on Instagram last week.
