The happy couple have kept fans up to date about their relationship over the past year, including news on their growing their farm family. 

In July, Claire took to Instagram to share her adorable surprise gift from beau Andrew. 

“Guys meet Mowgli,” she wrote alongside a picture of a pug. 

“@farmerandrewau picked him up for me today while I was at work…not sure he will make a good working dog but OMG my heat.”

The pair have been sharing titbits from their travel since finishing the show, and it was Claire’s post about their visit to Badger Island, that revealed what prompted her to apply for the show in the first place. 

Claire shared a sweet pic of the couple in which she and Andrew were sporting matching hats. 

An eagle-eyed fan commented on the photo, pointing out that the farmer was wearing a new hat – a very different look to the usual well-worn hat he was spotted wearing throughout the season.

“This is so funny,” replied Claire. “His hat is what made me apply for the show, I thought geeez that hat has a few stories to tell and this guy doesn’t care about fancy things.”

“His new hat will have even more stories to tell tho.”

Following the pair’s early exit from the show they spoke with Woman’s Day about what was next. After some pondering the pair have decided to take it “one day at a time” they explained. 

“We have a nice positive thing going here and it is good to finally get to show the world our happiness,” Claire, 37, told Woman’s Day, before adding that the pair have already discussed having children. 

“It would be nice to have twins first up and then see what would happen after that,” Claire told the publication. 
“We’re approaching it with the mindset of, let’s enjoy one another first for a period of time and make memories of our own, and if things keep evolving in a positive manner, then that’ll come,” explained Andrew.
