“I can’t explain how appreciative I am to call you mine,” he wrote.

“Never had so much support, and someone that has had my back at every turn.

In the carousel of images, the loved-up pair can be seen embracing, taking selfies, catching a flight together, and enjoying a beach day with Michael’s son.

“Changed man,” commented Ivan Sarakula, a fellow season seven groom.

“How sweet ❤️,” added another fan.

“Well treat her with respect 🙌,” wrote a third.

Michael had a rather difficult journey in season seven, having been paired with Stacey Hampton.

While they did finish the show committing to each other, but after explosive cheating rumours came out, with bride Natasha Spencer accusing Stacey of sleeping with her show-husband, Mikey Pembroke.

Meanwhile, Michael was accused of kissing Hayley Vernon. While neither rumour was confirmed entirely, there was too much doubt between the pair for them to continue a relationship.

Michael then went on to date KC Osborne, who married Drew Brauer on the season.

They separated in mid-2020 after a few months together.

KC made a statement about the breakup, claiming that Michael needed to make certain ‘changes’, but she wouldn’t be addressing them publicly.

“Out of respect for Michael and moving forward, they’re his changes. It’s not up to the public to know about that – that was our own personal thing within our relationship, and his life, and it’s private,” she told WHO at the time.

“He sold me that dream of, ‘I would stop my playboy ways to have a girl like you, you’re such a good girl’. You have to remember too, I had felt really rejected and here I was with this guy telling me everything I’d ever dreamed of hearing,” she said of the beginning of their relationship.

Michael appears to have remained single since his dalliance with KC, or kept his love life private – until now.

Congrats to the happy couple!
