Although she’d watched parts of his series - “She recognised me when I was on and was like, ‘I remember that guy!” says Jono - it wasn’t until after they’d got together that she watched it properly.
“She was blown away [about] how I got made out,” Pitman says. “[I was totally different] to what she knew after only two to three months.”
So IS he a different person?
“To a point,” Pitman says. “I think I am still the same person - and I don’t think I am the person I got portrayed to be.
“At the same time, I reckon I have learnt a lot about life, and about myself as well, and mental health - the whole thing.”
Jono says he’s happy to have found his perfect match with Bec, who is now 15 weeks pregnant.
And he can’t wait to embark on this next stage of his life.
“The way I feel about her, even the first day I saw her, it’s ridiculous,” he says.
“I never thought I could feel like that about anyone - I didn’t think it was real.”
So, what about marriage? Is he a convert now? Or is it a case of ‘Once bitten, twice shy?’
“Yeah, for me, it’s definitely something I would want to do with Bec,” he says sweetly.
Bec’s in it for the long-haul too.
“I’m so excited for this next chapter with Jono,” she says.
“He’s going to be the best dad.”
