But one year after sharing the news with fans, Telv, 34, is understood to be ‘questioning’ if he is the father.
Speaking to Hollywood Treatment under the condition of anonymity, a close friend claimed: ‘Telv is waiting on the results of a paternity test.’
The shocking new claim after many of his followers noticed that the Perth machinery technician changed his Instagram biography from ‘proud father of 3’ to ‘father of 2’.
Concerns: Speaking to Daily Mail Australia under the condition of anonymity, a close friend claimed: ‘Telv is waiting on the results of a paternity test’ amid concerns he is not baby Sage’s father (pictured centre)
‘Where is your blond boy?’ one follower asked questions underneath a recent selfie of Telv with his older children, T.J. and Miah.
‘Hope all is well’ another said. Meanwhile another asked: ‘How come we don’t see baby Sage in any of your posts anymore?’
Telv last shared a photo of little Sage in July last year and has since been sharing photos alongside T.J, and Miah, who he shares with another ex-partner, Amy Gowers.
In June 2019, Telv confirmed he was to become a father again, and revealed that the child’s mother was a woman he had dated for ‘a few months’ in 2018.
‘For the people asking, yes, I’m having a baby,’ he told his Instagram followers at the time.
He added: ‘I was actually dating a girl last year, for a couple of months, a few months, she’s not just a random. Since knowing her we’ve actually become pretty good friends. Our relationship is pretty good at the moment.
‘To all the people messaging me asking me if I’m okay… children are a blessing, so I’ve never been better. I’m going to add to my family, it’s fantastic.
‘Things happen in life where you just have to deal with them like an adult.’
Telv added that he initially did not want to address the issue ‘because it was his business’, but he decided to set the record straight after rumours began circulating.
In September 2019, Telv confirmed the child’s birth to Daily Mail Australia, adding that mother and baby were ‘healthy and happy’.
The father-of-three rose to fame in 2018 on Channel Nine’s Married At First Sight, on which he was paired with beautician Sarah Roza.
