Married Life With Fellow Co-Star
Doug is married to the actress Jamie Otis, his co-star of the show Married At First Sight. The couple tied their holy knot on 23 March 2014. As Doug and Jamie were strangers when they were exchanging the vows, Dough was wondering if he had made some biggest mistake of his life by marrying at first sight.
The duo met each other during the first season of Married at First Sight, and they decided to stay together, after completing the part of a social experiment. At first, they were both struggling to make their relationship work. Meanwhile, Jamie admitted that she still has feelings for her ex-boyfriend. Confessing her true feelings, she said,
I felt obligated to tell my husband how I felt because it almost felt like cheating if I didn't. I was thinking of my ex. That is not OK in a marriage. I knew I needed to be honest with Doug in order for us to work through it.
The couple also consulted with a psychologist and a relationship expert who helped them to gather courage on working out their relationship. They had their honeymoon and renewed their vows in St. Thomas to make their relationship stronger. Jamie changed her last name to Hehner and also made clear to her husband that she wants to start their family by welcoming a baby. Nevertheless, the pair had a progression in their romance as they went from total strangers to friends and lovers.
