Last year’s Bachelorette finale, which saw Elly Miles break runner-up Joe Woodbury’s heart, may have been one of the most devastating to watch, thus far.

So difficult was the final decision to go through with that even Elly herself couldn’t make it to the rose ceremony.

Instead, the Bachelorette went to Joe’s room to break the news to him.

Months have passed since our hearts ached for the sweet bachelor, and it seems he’s finally gotten the happy ending he deserved.

After teasing a possible romance in many of his Instagram stories, the reality star has made his new relationship Insta official.

Joe shared a sweet snap with his new girlfriend, a Newcastle-based beauty called Cassie, looking awfully happy, which we love to see.

“Sunday special,” Joe simply captioned the pic.

Cassie shared a similar snap to her own Instagram account with two heart emojis.

Despite the couple only now confirming the romance, there have been hints they were dating since the start of the year.

On January 17 Cassie shared an unsuspecting beach-side snap with the caption: “Wholesome weekend☀.”

However, Joe’s beloved dog Alfie, who famously appeared on The Bachelorette and stole the show, featured in Cassie’s photograph with Joe also being tagged.

Following the heartbreaking Bachelorette finale Joe took to Instagram to share his feelings, and in typical Joe-fashion was sweet as pie.

“Sometimes things don’t work out, no matter how much we want them to, and that’s just life. I’ve said from the beginning of this whole experience that I’m a firm believer of fate, and that everything happens for a reason, and for me this means that it hasn’t been my fate to find love here,” the runner-up explained in a heartfelt Instagram post.

“I hold my head high knowing I stuck by who I am, and know that I put everything on the table with how I felt.”

He went on to add: “Cannot thank everyone enough for their messages of love and support, from my family and friends, to people I haven’t even met before, you’ve all helped me through this experience and for that I am so grateful.”

Joe isn’t the only Bachelorette star to debut his new romance, as just days before, Frazer Neate, who was the one to win Elly’s heart on the season, also went Instagram official with his girlfriend Montana Strauss.

An insider first broke the news on the So Dramatic! podcast, with the new couple having kept their relationship under wraps.

Montana starred on Channel 7’s TV series, Holey Moley, and has reportedly been dating Frazer for some time.
