Former Love Island Australia participant Matt Zukowski has opened up about his infertility.
The reality television star, 28, joined the Back to Reality podcast to talk about the heartbreak of finding out about his condition.
The boyfriend of influencer Tammy Hembrow told hosts Taku and Selina that he ‘wasn’t embarrassed’ by the reproductive issue, but that it affects his approach to dating.
‘If I was to start seeing a girl…it’s one of the first things I tell them. My ex before I told her on, like, the second date, I said, ‘Hey, like, just so you know, I can’t have kids.”
‘I’m not embarrassed by it. I’m not ashamed of it…it’s obviously gonna be public knowledge now that, like, you know, I’m shooting blanks, all that sort of stuff,’ he added.

The hosts then asked Matt how he found out about the fertility issue, and he claimed that an ex spurred him to get checked because they ‘weren’t getting pregnant.’
Zukowski then went into detail about the process of the tests.
‘Went and did like this sperm like, you know, I don’t know how to nicely say that? Yeah. Put it into a cart, got it tested,’ he said.
‘[The doctor] called me because it’s sort of like in our lock down stage. And he was like, ‘Hey, Matt, just let you know, you’ve got no sperm.’ And I was like, ‘oh, so I’ve got low sperm.’ He said, ‘No, you’ve got no sperm.’ And I was like, ‘Oh, s**t.”
It comes as Matt and girlfriend Tammy Hembrow, 29, went Instagram official over the weekend.

Tammy sparked rumours in September that she was dating again after she was busted cuddling up reality star Matt after moving on from her ex-fiancé Matt Poole.
The pair could barely keep their hands off each other following a taping of Zukowski’s podcast, Where’s Your Head At?, at The Vanguard in the inner city suburb of Newtown.

Upon exiting the venue, the couple’s chemistry was palpable as they embraced on busy King Street and gave cars passing by quite the show.
Tammy has previously been romantically linked to several men, including ex-fiancé Reece Hawkins, Canadian singer Jahkoy and American rapper Tyga.
She confirmed her split with ex-fiancé Matt, 35, earlier this year when a fan asked in the comments of a TikTok video what happened.
At the time the athletic wear designer said she and the athlete were better off as friends.
Meanwhile back in May, Zukowski confirmed he had officially split from his girlfriend Genevieve after a whirlwind romance of one and a half years.
