While she may not have found the one on the Honey Badger’s season of The Bachelor, Brittany Hockley has found true love with her fiancé Benjamin Siegrist. 

Announcing their engagement in June 2024. Brittany wrote, “In any lifetime, it’s a YES! Just two people loving each other for the rest of our lives.”

Surprising her Life Uncut co-hosts with the news, Brittany shared the heartwarming backstory to her proposal disguised as a listener letter, sharing, “In 2022, I met this amazing guy, but he lived overseas. My friends were really concerned because long distance is never easy… Flash forward to now and I’ve never been happier, and last week on a beautiful island, he asked me to be his wife, and I want to know what’s a cute way to tell my friends I’m getting married?”

After sharing in the exciting news, Brittany’s co-host and fellow Bachelor star Laura Byrne revealed that she had secretly helped Benjamin with the proposal two months prior by helping him choose the perfect engagement ring.

Since announcing their romance in January 2023, the former reality TV star has regularly kept fans up to date on her relationship with the Swiss goalkeeper, sharing updates and snippets of their adventures together on social media.

Now, as the couple prepare to celebrate their wedding day, we take a closer look back at their love story so far.

Who is Brittany Hockley dating?

Brittany Hockley is currently engaged to 32-year-old goalkeeper Benjamin Siegrest. 

The couple went public with their relationship in January 2023 after multiple media outlets identified Benjamin from a faceless photo Brittany shared to her Instagram story. Two weeks later, Brittany hard-launched her new romance with Benjamin, sharing a sweet montage of the couple travelling through Paris.

“From Paris, with love. Think I may have found me a keeper 🔒🤍 #hardestlaunch,” she captioned the footage, with Ben replying with a simple “love you.’

Ben was quick to comment “love you”, while also sharing a photo with Brit to his own Instagram. 

“Wasn’t easy catching this one 😉🧤,” his caption read.

Shortly after making her relationship public, Brittany revealed on her Life Uncut podcast that she and Benjamin had first met in November 2022 after matching on the celebrity dating app Raya.

Unfortunately for the couple, Brittany matched with Benjamin while he was in Australia for his Scotland-based football team’s match against Sydney FC, which made the early days of their relationship long-distance. 

Visiting Edinburgh in April 2023, Brittany wrote to Instagram“Twas a long few months apart. Something I’ve learned doing long distance: the longer we spend apart is a direct correlation to how annoying I am on arrival.”

One month before her appearance on the 2024 season of  I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of HereBrittany opened up on the couple’s decision to start a family, revealing that the couple had decided to freeze embryos in the last year. 

“The feelings surrounding fertility are so layered and complex…To be honest, I wasn’t expecting the feelings that I had when I was told my round was unsuccessful and I would be going home with no embryos,” Brittany shared to Instagramadding that her embryo was deemed “not compatible with life.” 

“As smart women, we know it’s not our fault, yet we can’t help but feel like failures when our body doesn’t keep up. That’s how I felt anyway. The pressure is monumental… The pressure to not let down a partner even though you’re doing everything you can and it’s often not in your control.”

Who has Brittany Hockley dated?

Prior to her relationship with Benjamin, Brittany was previously in a relationship with tennis player Jordan Thompson. 

The couple first matched on Raya and dated for a number of years before announcing their split in February 2022. 

Reflecting on her relationship in November 2022, Brittany told the No Filter podcast, “We both agreed that it wasn’t working, but I would have tried probably a little longer I think. Every part of me knew that it wasn’t going to work, but I just wasn’t ready to let it go… Sometimes you can love someone and it isn’t right, but you can still love them, and that’s what we were.”
