The news was revealed before the season finale, which reveals which couples decide to stay together, had even aired on Lifetime.
The baby will be Shawniece’s first — but who is the baby daddy? The news Shawniece had a bun in the oven was revealed by People, but intriguingly they DIDN’T reveal who the father is.
Fans were left wondering if it is Jephte Pierre — her husband on the show — or someone else, and were hoping to have the news confirmed on the Season 6 finale.

Shawniece told People: “When I found out I was pregnant, I was absolutely shocked. I was in the emergency room because I felt awful and had no idea what was wrong.
“They came back and told me all my symptoms were from pregnancy and that I was pregnant. I was totally shocked.”
However, she said she had “always wanted” to be a mother and that she felt that it was her life’s purpose, adding: “Life is a beautiful thing!”
Fans were left in even more of a tizzy after the Married at First Sight Facebook page posted the People story before the finale, and appeared to reveal that the baby daddy WAS Jephte.
They wrote: “We’re so happy for Shawniece and Jephte! 💖👶🏾🍼 Make sure you tune in to see which couples find happily ever
One fan said: “REALLY!!!! Why would they spoil the whole finale!!! BBBBOOOOOOOOO 😡.”
Another added: “WTHeck? News BEFORE the finale airs? REALLY? Talk about a spoiler alert .. this better be a joke!”
