The Married at First Sight alum is very open with her fans and she shared the news with her Instagram followers a few hours ago.
“I wanted you to hear this from me first bc I myself found out unexpectedly,” said Jamie. “I won’t be hosting MAFS: Unfiltered this season🥲 Please read my whole statement before making assumptions…”
She shared, “Hosting MAFS was my absolute dream job💯 I began hosting that amazing show 10 seasons ago… I was on set shooting in Florida when I began losing my first son (I bledddd through pad after pad while interviewing cast members) but I didn’t stop working bc I knew if the host left, the show obviously couldn’t go on.”
“I hosted while SUPER pregnant [with] my rainbow baby,” she continued.

The Married at First Sight alum continued to reminisce about her time as host of the spinoff show and later thanked the network for giving her the opportunity.
”I hosted this show immediately (literally a few weeks) after giving birth to my son. We set up studio in my living room during quarantine . I have given my ALL to married at first sight bc in a lot of ways it has given its ALL to me,” wrote Jamie.
“That show, the network, and the production team *deserved* all I had to give. If it hadn’t been for them I wouldn’t have my hubby or our beautiful children AND lil ‘ole trailer park girl-ME!-hosting a national television show on an incredible network like lifetime?”
