Cathy Evans and Josh Pihlak seemed like they would be the success story of Married At First Sight this year, but with the show well and truly behind them, Cathy has officially debuted her new man to the world.

Taking to Instagram, the former reality contestant, 26, shared a stunning photo of herself and her partner Ritchie at what appears to be a wedding.

Dressed in a printed dress, Cathy smiles at the camera with her boyfriend posing next to her, his arm around her waist.

“Celebrating love with my love,” she captioned the sweet snap.

The former MAFS bride also shared the same snap on her Instagram Stories, captioning it: “My whole heart.”

It seems as if Cathy is well and truly in a good place now, as she posted an uplifting quote to her Instagram account that reads: “May you get a sign that shows you that you’re on the right path and that things are flowing and moving in your favour. May the sign be evident, clear, and direct.”

Cathy rarely speaks about her personal life but shared a custom-made art piece that featured herself and Ritchie on Instagram back in August, though Ritchie’s face was not made visible.

“It’s a special day today. My boyfriend’s birthday and I don’t share him on insta purely because I like to keep my love life private,” she captioned the post.

“People wanna ruin a good thing and I don’t want that for us. Plus he’s a private man and I respect his wishes. But for once, I’ll post of us. I love you so much 💕 hope you had a beautiful day baby x.”

In a previous chat with NW back in May, Cathy debuted her new man and confessed they met in early 2019 via a dating app but reconnected a few weeks after she and Josh left MAFS.

“Life has been better than ever. I found an amazing partner. It took an experience like MAFS to make me realise what I want in a partner and what I expect in a relationship,” she confessed.

She added that she “hit the jackpot” with Ritchie and that marriage and babies are well and truly on the cards.

“We see a future together and are already thinking about what suburb we would buy or build a house in. And kids will happen. No dates yet, but stand by!”

Meanwhile Cathy’s MAFS ex Josh, 29, has moved on too and has found love with 27-year-old nurse, Maddy Butt.

The former reality TV groom went Instagram official with her back in October when he shared a sweet photo of them with their arms around one another, and simply captioning the snap with two heart emojis.

Of course, his MAFS co-stars quickly shared their delight in the comments.

“That’s a bit cute,” Luke Eglin penned.

“GlD your happy joshy!” exclaimed Hayley Vernon.

“She looks really nice. Does she have an older sister? ;),” joked season six groom Mike Gunner.
