The father of Farmer Wants A Wife contestant Hayley Love’s unborn child has responded to her bombshell announcement with a thinly-veiled message to his critics.
Will Dwyer, who was paired with Jaimee on the show but struck up a secret relationship with Hayley after filming, declined to comment on her public announcement she was expecting his baby when contacted by news.com.au yesterday.
Overnight, however, he took to Instagram to post a graphic reading, “A WOLF DOES NOT CONCERN HIMSELF WITH THE OPINIONS OF SHEEP”.
It comes after Hayley, who was paired with Farmer Matt Trewin on the show, came forward to talk about connecting with Will shortly after the finale was filmed in December, but before the reunion episode taped in January.
It is understood their relationship ended when Hayley fell pregnant in April, but as Hayley revealed in a public statement to news.com.au yesterday, she has “decided to keep the baby, because I have enough love for this child with or without a biological father. I will be enough for him or her.”
In a follow-up statement posted to social media overnight, Hayley, 25, explained she had been “absolutely terrified” to come forward and share her story, sharing a sweet image of an ultrasound with her followers.
After weeks of blind items about a “Farmer Wants A Wife pregnancy scandal”, the story hit FWAW fans like a bomb yesterday.
Revealing the rumours surrounding her pregnancy in the lead-up to yesterday’s story had made her feel like an “absolute wreck”, Hayley – who had earlier deactivated her social media accounts – thanked fans for their support.
“I am going to let the dust settle over the next few days but just wanted to jump on quickly to say a massive thank you. My heart is so full and I know bubs is going to have so much love,” she wrote.
In the meantime, Channel 7 has released the trailer for the show’s upcoming reunion special, featuring loved-up snippets of Will seemingly still pursuing his original “pick”, Jaimee.
“I’d be the luckiest man alive,” Will is shown saying ,as clips from a past episode show him kissing Jaimee.
Elsewhere, he’s seen sitting on the couch talking to host Natalie Gruzlewski, looking up when an unknown woman descends the stairs.
