Married At First Sight’s Bryce Ruthven has faced criticism on social media for not driving his pregnant fiancée Melissa Rawson to a doctor’s appointment.

Bryce clarified, however, that he had offered to drive Melissa, who is expecting twins, but she had insisted on getting behind the wheel herself.

‘I offered (as I always do) to drive but Melissa wanted to drive to our appointment because she knows she won’t be able to in a few weeks,’ he wrote. 

‘It was the first time she’s had the opportunity for a proper drive (longer than one minute to the shops) in many weeks.

‘I’m not going to take away that excitement for her if she wants to, and the doctor said Liss is able to drive until a particular date.’

Melissa, 32, later explained on Instagram that she ‘likes to drive’.

She also maintained it was her decision to get behind the wheel.

‘Bryce did offer to drive, which is probably the biggest issue,’ she said, before accusing trolls of continuously trying to find fault with her fiancé.

‘That to me is the issue,’ she said. ‘It’s frustrating because I am capable of driving… I can physically do things for myself.’ 

The couple have been regularly updating fans on their pregnancy journey, and on Sunday shared footage of Melissa’s 28-week scan.

Bryce joked whether his sons would get his ‘beak’ of a nose, while Melissa said she couldn’t wait to see their ‘chubby little cheeks’.
