They may have broken up two years ago, but we will always remember Sasha Mielczarek as Sam Frost's former boyfriend - the man she chose during the penultimate episode of the very first season of the Bachelorette in 2015.

Now, it seems that Sam's former flame has found love again - and it's about time!

Taking to his Instagram this week, the construction manager shared a pic of himself with a gorgeous lady friend, Tori May, beside a donut van in Berry.

"Of course I found her at the Berry donut van #emojigamestrong," he captioned the post.

"Happy 40th Birthday @torimay! I feel extremely grateful to have such an amazing, caring and compassionate lady in my life."

Nawww isn't this the sweetest?

"I love hanging out and talking shop even if it means I have to listen to one of your less interesting stories! Hope you have an amazing day," he added.

Tori, who has just finished a vacay in Kho Samui (thank you Instagram deep dive), responded to Sash's post with: "Babe your supposed to take off 10 years not add them, but thanks for the bday love. See you soon. [sic]"

While there are no love hearts or kisses or "I love you's" to confirm their romance, model and good friend of Sasha gave it all away with his comment: "Cutest couple of 2018. happy birthday Mrs Milkcrate @torimay [sic]," and to this we say thank you, Kris!

Back in December 2016, hearts shattered across the country when Sasha Mielczarek announced his split from Sam after 18 months together.

Taking to Instagram at the time, Sasha revealed that it was distance that was proving too challenging and before that, Sam also penned a cryptic Instagram post that alluded to trouble in paradise.

The bubbly blonde wrote, "Christmas isn't always sunshine and rainbows for everyone.. I'm sending nothing but good vibes, love, light & happiness. I promise 2017 is going to be YOUR year xxxx."

During the course of their relationship, the couple did long distance with Sam based in Sydney for her radio show, Rove and Sam and Sasha living on the South Coast in NSW for his construction job.

Sasha has kept a relatively low profile since his split from the Home and Away star.

In an interview in September 2017, the construction worker opened up about the heartbreaking toll their break-up actually took on him.

For the six months following, he revealed that he had suffered with mental health issues and found it difficult to ask for help.

"I'm a blokey-bloke... I suffered in silence and didn't talk about it," he told News.com.au.

"It's difficult to get your mind out of that funk."

The former reality star was able to overcome his struggles with the help of a strong support network from friends and family, namely his mum Kym Ingles.

"I'm lucky my mum was very close to me then and we'd talk it through. But it took me a while to open up to other men as well, like my friends," he continued.

In the few years that Sasha has been single, he has been spotted with one or two different women, including a rumoured relationship with former Bachelor star, Nikki Gogan.

We're so happy for you and Tori, Sasha!
