Lifetime has ordered the new spin-off series, “Married at First Sight: Jamie and Doug Plus One,” chronicling fan favorite couple Jamie Otis and Doug Hehner’s journey towards the next great chapter in their love story—parenthood! The series kicks off with a two and a half-hour special, premiering Tuesday, December 19, at 8pm ET/PT. Two 30-minute episodes will air on subsequent Tuesdays, beginning December 26, at 10pm ET/PT on Lifetime.
It’s been three years since Jamie and Doug met for the very first time at the altar, on season one of “Married at First Sight.” Though their relationship wasn’t exactly a fairytale, they stuck with it and are now happily married, preparing for the birth of their new child, after the devastating miscarriage of their son last year.
Their lives will be forever changed, as they welcome the addition of their new little one. The special documents the emotional moments leading up to and capturing the birth of daughter Henley Grace, who has the distinction of being the first ever “Married at First Sight” baby. After her birth, the series will follow the Hehners as they navigate their ‘new normal,’ experiencing all the ups and downs of parenthood, and falling in love with their baby girl – at first sight.
“Married at First Sight: Jamie and Doug Plus One” is produced for Lifetime by Kinetic Content. Executive producers for the series are Chris Coelen, Eric Detwiler, Sam Dean and Lyndee Brown from Kinetic Content and Gena McCarthy for Lifetime.
