The Queensland-based FIFO worker made his new relationship Instagram official on Sunday after sharing a series of photos and videos taken in Mount Tamborine.

“Spent the weekend babysitting @lillnewman,” he captioned his post.

Jonethen’s fans and followers shared their own messages of congratulations towards him and Lilli, including some of Jonethen’s former MAFS contestants.

“Y’all are a bit cute,” commented KC Osborne.

“Big statement,” penned Ivan Sarakula, whilst Steve Burley shared three heart emojis.

Jonethen’s new girlfriend Lilli Newman is also based in Queensland and has shared her own footage of herself and Jonethen on Instagram.

However, she bears a striking resemblance to Jonethen’s MAFS wife Connie, with the two sharing the exact same hairstyle.

Connie wowed fans earlier this year when she showed off her new blonde streaks that stand out against her naturally dark hair and Lilli has tried out the very same look.

Coincidence or does the MAFS groom have a thing for girls with that hairstyle?

Despite ending things on good terms, Jonethen and Connie’s MAFS marriage was a rocky one and reached boiling point when Connie unexpectedly voted to stay at one drama-filled commitment ceremony.

Jonethen later told Nova’s Fitzy and Wippa that producers persuaded him to stay on the show and that he was forced to continue filming for nearly a month before being allowed to exit the experiment. 

“It was maybe three or three-and-a-half weeks,” he said before being asked how long he’d been actually writing “leave” at the commitment ceremony. 

“They only have so much time on the show so they do pressure certain things or ask stuff like ‘why aren’t you guys having sex?’ I kept saying to them, ‘I don’t see anything in this relationship, I wanted to leave’.”

Though they initially tried to be friends following their reality TV marriage, Connie ended things completely with Jonethen when he ditched her birthday for a paid club promotion.

“He was with Mikey, Ivan, Steve and Dave… I get it, these guys are celebrities, they’re D grade celebrities,” Connie told A.B and Ben on Hit105.5’s Coff’s Coast.

“They had this very important event to go to and they said after it was done they’d come and meet me for a drink. I thought, awesome, that’d mean the world to me. But after saying they’d come, they didn’t even bother.”

She added: “I thought they could take an hour after lapping up that D grade life to have a drink with a mate. They were too busy with their meet and greets and thinking they’re really relevant and important.”
