From the early stages of the season, Luke's connection with the 29-year-old beauty therapist was palpable.
Despite also catching the eye of fellow Bachelor Ben Waddell during their first night in the mansion, Ellie was quick to uncover where her heart truly lay.
“I can’t invest my energy in two people, and I’m at a point where I just want to be focused on Luke,” Ellie said during the first episode.
From the first episode, Luke and Ellie's chemistry was undeniable.
Throughout their time on The Bachelors, Luke and Ellie's romance only continued to strengthen, making it no surprise that the former NRL star declared his love for her during the series finale.
"I once told you that I've only ever felt this way towards someone twice in my life, I now realise that was a lie. Ellie, I've never felt the way I do for you, for anyone else," Luke said.
Lost for words, Ellie responded with a kiss and a simple "I love you" before Luke gifted her a stunning ring.
Luke & Ellie celebrated their romance during the season finale.
Taking to Instagram after the finale episode, Luke shared a heartwarming tribute to his new love.
"From the very first moment I met Ellie, her presence shifted something within me and I knew instantly she was beyond special and my life would never be the same again. The love that grew between us on the show and continues to grow now is nothing short of magical."
"This gorgeous girl is the definition of ineffable, she holds such immeasurable depth and intricacy to her soul and I am left in daily awe of her... She makes life more vivid and meaningful to everyone she encounters and I am so profoundly blessed to have met and be loved by such a beautiful human," Luke continued.
The couple are still happily in love.
After confirming that their new romance is still going strong after the finale, Luke and Ellie revealed to The Canberra Times that they plan to move in together in early 2024.
The couple also shared that Luke will be venturing to Ellie's hometown in Western Australia to celebrate Christmas with her family before venturing on their new life together.
Debuting their post-show romance on The Project, Luke and Ellie also revealed that they have taken their relationship to the next level, with the pair getting matching tattoos.
"It's a love heart. I've got the letter L and he's got the letter E," Ellie said, sharing that the pair spontaneously decided on the new ink after a boozy lunch.
The pair have made a permanent commitment to their romance.
