Married at First Sight: Happily Ever After stars Bobby Dodd and Danielle Bergman revealed they’re expecting a daughter, but will the stay at home mom demands spark their first-ever fight? On MAFS: Before the 90 Days, Danielle was adamant about wanting a good ol’ southern boy and all the trappings that come with it. As the pair embark on their journey into parenthood, will those traditional child-rearing values threaten to tear them apart? Danielle worried he’d expect her to stay at home with a child like his mom did when he was growing up. It’s common in his family, but seems a touchy subject for his bride.
Married at First Sight: Happily Ever After? – Danielle Bergman gushes over baby girl
Bobby and Danielle are caught up in the euphoria that comes with the knowledge that they are expecting a baby. After taking the journey on Married at First Sight all the way to the end, a child cements that bond even further. Speaking with PEOPLE about her pregnancy and gender reveal, Danielle Bergman added:
“The day we found out we were having a baby girl was so special. Bobby Dodd was just sure it was a boy and I felt like I knew it was a girl. I had been having extremely vivid dreams about finding out the gender and I always dreamed of a girl!”
The gender reveal is exciting news, but will trigger some discussion over gender roles in the family. Could this finally be what triggers Bobby Dodd and Danielle Bergman’s first fight as newlyweds?

Danielle Bergman a stay-at-home mom? Married at First Sight: Happily Ever After
Once reality sets in, they will have some issues to address. Bobby Dodd is all for traditional roles when it comes to marriage and raising children. His mother is a stay-at-home mom and it’s something that he believes works. Meanwhile, even though Danielle Bergman moved from Seattle to Texas to be with him, she’s certainly bringing her Pacific Northwest attitude with her.
She wanted a traditional guy on Married at First Sight but it doesn’t look like she wants the traditional roles and values that go with that. On MAFS, Danielle Bergman said that she’d shoot herself if she had to stay home with children every day. Bobby Dodd seems more than ready to step into the role of provider for Danielle and their growing family. Danielle Bergman has a decision to make. She wants to focus on growing her career but she’s growing her family with Bobby simultaneously. Sooner or later, she is going to have to address this conflict or find a way to make it work.
Are Bobby Dodd and Danielle finally heading for a fight?
Its been nothing but smooth sailing so far on Married at First Sight for Bobby and Danielle. They are the only couple that hasn’t fought yet. There’s probably a betting pool counting down to their first big blowout. Danielle and Bobby Dodd addressed budget issues, getting a dog, and skirted around the issue of her being a stay-at-home mom. The other couples on last season of MAFS were envious (and a bit dubious) about Bobby Dodd and Danielle Bergman’s seemingly perfect pairing.
Could Danielle Bergman choosing between her career and children be the tipping point? Bobby Dodd has been nothing but accommodating so far. It will be interesting to see if something eventually sends him over the edge. We’ll see how they hash things out about the roles in their marriage with the new baby on the way.
