Has honorary Married at First Sight Australia 2022 cast member Belinda Ding (AKA Ella Ding‘s mum) confirmed that her daughter is, in fact, dating her co-star Brent Vitiello?

Over the weekend, Belinda shared some wholesome snaps of Brent and his bestie, Al Perkins, from their trip to Melbourne.

The mother of the (former) bride uploaded several snaps to Instagram of herself posing alongside the grooms and stop — our hearts are melting.

In one post, Belinda remarked that it was “lovely to get to know” the duo and that there were plenty of “happy vibes”.

In another, she joked that she had “created hangover food” for Ella and the boys. Bless her heart.

While Mama Ding’s posts spruik the story of the trio being “best friends”, some have been questioning whether there was another reason Brent and Al headed down south to meet Ella’s fam.

Rumours have been swirling for a good while that Brent and Ella are *a thing*, and despite disputing gossip and debunking claims that they are anything more than pals, the pair seem closer than ever!

This Isn’t the First Time That Brent Has Met Ella’s Mum

Ella and Brent added more fuel to the rumour fire during their joint birthday celebrations.

The MAFS alumni were snapped getting cozy throughout the party and our hearts simply cannot handle this.

Both Ella and Brent’s mothers became instant MAFS icons this past season — Lana Vitiello, for telling her son to tell Tamara to get f*cked and Belinda, for making a whole ass pasta dinner whilst wearing a Louis Vuitton headscarf during Home Stays.

The pair’s families finally got to meet during their wild shindig.
