Bruno, who is Carolina’s child from a previous relationship, appeared comfortable around his 31-year-old stepdad.

Carolina, 34, looked chic in a pair of high-waisted denim jeans, which she teamed with a white tank top and a black Prada bag.

She also walked her dog Lola on a pink lead.

Carolina and Daniel were involved in one of the biggest scandals in MAFS history.

The pair began hooking up while Carolina was still technically ‘married’ to her on-screen husband Dion Giannarelli.

They had several rendezvous while hapless Dion tried everything to make things work with the Brazilian-born businesswoman.

Daniel had already left the experiment after the demise of his marriage to Jessica Seracino, but stuck around so he could seduce another man’s ‘wife’.

In a recent interview with 9Entertainment, Dion said he was stunned to discover Carolina had been cheating on him with the bodybuilder.

‘All of a sudden, the sliding door flings open and sure enough it’s Carolina and Daniel, hand in hand, coming in to give everyone a massive surprise and let them know that they’ve been together and they’d like to enter the experiment ,’ he said.

Although he was initially shocked to see them together, Dion said certain things about his relationship with Carolina finally fell into place after she walked into the commitment ceremony with Daniel.

‘The minute they walked in and I saw them together, I thought to myself, “Okay, I understand now. This all makes sense,”‘ he said.

‘There were moments in the experiment where I thought things were quite odd, or there were times where I’d contact Carolina to see if she’d like to grab a bite to eat for dinner… she wouldn’t answer the phone. Now I know she was with Daniel.’

‘We can just do a lot of things that I didn’t get to do with my mum, for example, because of our age gap. So there are positives, but it was hard at times, especially in the beginning.’
