The personal trainer has admitted to wanting a “fully natural birth” without drugs, and has lost six kilograms due to her morning sickness.
“I’m not eating nearly as much as I would usually. My meal portions are a lot smaller. Also, I haven’t trained for three months so I’m losing muscle,” she told the publication.
Davina featured on last year’s season of Married At First Sight, but her relationship with Sydney tradesman Ryan Gallagher ended badly.
She plotted an affair with another controversial groom, Dean Wells, during the experiment.
