Cassie and Ryan were one of the couples on the controversial TV show Seven Year Switch, and were at breaking point in their relationship when they applied to be on the program.

While the couple have an 11-month-old daughter, Emmerson, and nine-year-old Ramani, from Cassie’s previous relationship; the pair admitted that a lot of their relationship problems began after their secret heartbreak in losing their son Dex, who was stillborn at 37 weeks last year.

“Cass and I lost my first born son three years ago. He was stillborn. The majority of our problems started then… We’re very open in how we talk about it,” Ryan said in the show.

But there was joy for the couple – after much speculation that Cass was preggers during the show’s filming – we watched her bump grow each week! – on the Monday night reunion episode the couple confirmed the very happy news that they are indeed expecting another baby together. And they appear to be closer than ever. AWW, yay! found out just after filming on the show started

“We’re expecting our fourth baby, we found out a couple of days before we started filming. We wanted to keep it quiet for the time being since we’ve had hardships through our pregnancies,” Cassie said. “It’s a scary process … this pregnancy has gone so quickly, I don’t even know if I’m ready yet. We’re expecting another little girl.”

Since the show has ended, the pair have taken to Instagram to share an adorable snap of their family, with an emotional caption underneath:

“Ry and I are expecting our 4th bub very soon!! I know this number confuses a lot of people (spesh journos!) because you only see two babes in this pic?!”

“Here it is.. We have a son who is not with us. He may have passed away when we went into labour at 37.5 weeks and even though we didn’t get to bring him home from hospital it doesn’t make him any less of a human and he deserves recognition as our child too! Dex (our son) was perfect to the eye, seemingly healthy and his death is still unexplained,” they wrote.

“We didn’t get many memories with Dex just a few short hours, and just because I’m not flashing up pictures of our son playing with his sisters it doesn’t mean that this little boy is any less a part of our family. He is in our every thought. We speak about him everyday. He is a big part of our life, as is any other parents child past or present! Dex was considered Stillborn. We had a funeral. He had a coffin and he has a birth and death certificate. He was REAL,” they added.

“He was our first born son, my second child (Ryan’s first) a little brother to my eldest and a big brother to little Em and our next little girl.”

We’re in tears – but we’re also so happy for this lovely family and can’t wait to meet the new bub.
