Like all couples, the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown was a test to see if they were endgame. Fortunately for this duo, while their engagement plans have been put to a grinding halt thanks to the pandemic, Hayden said that the pair “came out of COVID all good.”
“We’re getting along nice and strong which is good. She’s missing her parents though because she’s from the US and she hasn’t been able to see them for more than 18 months. So she gets a little home sick every now again but we’re also very grateful to be in Australia.”
The pair first started dating after they met in the United States in 2016, before Raynor moved from Los Angeles to Sydney in the second year of their relationship to be with the MasterChef. On the 31st of December 2020, the couple celebrated five years together.

Speaking to TV Week around that time, Hayden admitted that neither he or his girlfriend were ready to settle down just yet.
“God, no, we’re a bit young,” he said at the time. “We’re happy where we are at the moment. We’re very busy just travelling and enjoying life.”
