Actress Olympia Valance and AFL Essendon player Thomas Bellchambers are fast becoming our favourite celebrity couple.
The genetically blessed power pair have been loved up from the moment they met, regularly gushing about one another on Instagram. And we're obsessed.
Olympia and Tom first made their romance "Instagram official" sharing the same snap from the Moët & Chandon 150th birthday event in June last year.

The couple had been dating for just a month after meeting, around the time of Olympia's grandfather, 88-year-old Dimitri Gogos' passing.
The 27-year-old described Thomas' support through the tragedy to WHO as "really amazing."
"He has come to me at a good time in my life," she adds.
The pair were instantly smitten, with Olympia going on to say that just a few months in to their romance they were already living together.
"We live together; we haven't spent a night apart since. I'm absolutely happy."

Life soon began imitating art for the actress and WAG.
When chatting to TV WEEK for season two of AFL drama Playing For Keeps Olympia joked about the parallels of playing on-screen WAG Tahlia Woods and supporting AFL star, Tom, from the sidelines in real life.
"There are definitely similarities," she said with a laugh. "It's hilarious, really. Sometimes I read the scripts and I'm like, 'Is this my life?' Some of the conversations in the show are ones I've had with Thomas.
"I know far more about the game than I ever did before – and I watch the football all the time now."

Most recently, Thomas confirmed to the Herald Sun that he and Olympia had purchased a "country weekender" together near Daylesford, Victoria, which settled on Valentine's Day.
"We'd love to spend 2-3 days a week up there," he told the publication.
"It's an exciting next step for us. We are both super happy and couldn't be going better."
