Farmer Wants A Wife Updates – Farmer Jenny Pregnant?

New Idea have done a good special on Farmer Wants A Wife and has given updates on many of the farmers, and their partners.

Farmer Jenny

First up is female farmer Jenny Blake who is rumoured to be expecting her first baby.

New Idea said:
After marrying fellow farmer Mark Geppert last year following a whirlwind romance, it seems her dreams of a family might finally be coming true.

Jenny giggles to New Idea: ‘I can’t say anything yet’

But there’s a buzz among the Farmers about Jenny’s news. Andrew hall, who appeared in the show and went to Jenny’s wedding told the Adelaide Advertiser  he’d caught up with Jenny’s best friend – but was tight lipped about the pregnancy.

“I’ve no comment – yet,” he said.

Jenny,34, is understood to be having her baby in September, but is hesitant to discuss it at this stage.

Farmer Ben

Farmer Ben Honey is now engaged to Kate Morgan a girl mutual friends set him up with.

He told New Idea:

“Kate was absolutely stunning,” Ben 32, tells New Idea. “I thought:’This can’t be the girl they said was for me, can it?” I thought the girl they wanted to set me up with must have been in the toilets!”

A little over a year later they were engaged.

Kate who is a primary school teacher is 23.

She said “I’d never lived on property before and it was extremely different from what I’m used to. But I love it now – to have all this space is amazing.

Ben proposed while they were in Queensland for his cousins 21st birthday party in January. They plan to wed later in the year.

Farmer Rob & Jo

They will be getting married in the next few weeks. Expect to see an article in one of the weekly women’s mags.

They will wed in Dunkeld – half way between Rob’s 890-hectare property outside Mount Gambier and Jo’s home city of Melbourne. About 100 people are expected to attend the black tie nuptials.

Farmer Howie

Season Two Howie Webster is still wanting to meet his perfect match. New Idea reminds us that he rejected his budding ‘wives’ on the hit TV series because there were no sparks and he did not want to waste their time.

He told New Idea:

“It does get lonely out here, but I’d rather be alone and relatively happy than be in an unhappy relationship,”

“Some people say I’m too fussy, but as you get older, you know what you want and what you don’t want. My time on the show only reinforced my views and ideas of what I want and I’m not that keen to waste my time.”

Farmer Damien

Good news he is now living with the love Racheal Peynenborg. Damien Atkins the gentle farmer from Tasmania says they are not yet engaged because he spent all his money on a new tractor.

He told New Idea:

“There’s nothing to report yet, but we have bought a do. That’s a big step for me. It’s the most commited I’ve ever been,” he laughs.

“It doesn’t seem like we’ve been together for 18 months,’ he says. ‘We get along well. She helps on the farm by feeding a few calves and poking around in the vegie patch, but I didn’t bring her over to be slave labour.

Farmer Ralph

New Idea reports he has just broken up with Siri. Before filming had ended on his season in 2008 25-year-old horse trainer Siri Spranz had moved in.

But last week she moved out with Ralph saying he was not ready for marriage at this stage.

He told New Idea:

“I felt the spark was there, and it certainly made sense at the time,”

“Siri’s a great girl and really ticks all the boxes, but in the end I realised I was not ready for that sort of commitment.”

They broke up over lunch.

“There were no heated arguements, but it was very emotional watching her pack her things and move out,” he says. “It doesn’t feel real at the moment, and I stil don’t believe it’s over.”

Andrew Gill (one of Farmer Jenny’s Guys)

Andrew the explosive expert was overlooked by Jenny as she picked Owen, however good news he has now hooked up with Cass Skapin a woman who went on the  show to meet a farmer. She was rejected by Farmer Ralph. But these two are now living together in Rockhampton.

I’m an old sook probably, but it’s nice to hear that some have found real happiness :)

Really pleased that Damien and Rachael are still together – I loved them as a couple but no news on the farmer from Lithgow?

This years series is great, looking forward to seeing Becky getting settled with a new man. Check out Farmer Wants a wife for gossip and also the Dating Site for Farmers who did not make it onto the series Farm Dating

I would suggest to further enhance a top rating show, a photo snap shot of ‘ what the farmers have been doing and where are they now ‘ including a pre – promotion of this type prior to the commencement of each new yearly series. Past photos of previous farmers starting at episode one always attract the dedicated program viewer .
