Former Home and Away star Pia Miller is currently living her best life.
The 36-year-old model and actress, who starred as Summer Bay's local cop Kat Chapman on the hit soap from 2015 until 2017, has a brand new man on her arm - and she's certainly not shy about shouting the news of their romance from the rooftops.
Pia's new beau is 54-year-old American agent Patrick Whitehall, the CEO of Hollywood talent agency WME.
The agency boasts a number of A-list clients including Matt Damon, Hugh Jackman and Ben Affleck.
Pia and Patrick were first linked in May last year, less than a month after his divorce with ex-wife Lauren Sanchez was finalised.
Lauren, Patrick's partner of 13 years and the mother of his three children, is now dating Amazon founder and billionaire Jeff Bezos.

At the time, sources close to the CEO said the pair had hit it off but were taking things slowly.
"They've just been on a couple of dates so far," an insider told Page Six, "so we'll see."
Just a few months later in August, Page Six reported that things were heating up between Pia and Patrick, with the new couple vacationing together on a yacht in Italy.
Pia reportedly took a flight from Australia to LA to meet up with her man, and then he organised a private jet to Italy for their romantic getaway.

The loved-up duo made their public debut last October, stepping out together at a Halloween party in Los Angeles and posed happily for official photos.
According to the Daily Mail, Pia and Patrick were seen hand-in-hand at the renowned Casamigos Halloween party.

Patrick made his first appearance on Pia's Instagram feed in December, when she posted a sweet couple pic of herself and her beau while on holiday in Paris.
In the intimate snap, Pia nuzzled her face into Patrick's neck outside the famous Louvre Museum, while her man grinned as he took the selfie.
"Happiest of all happy birthdays to you. 🎈 The Greatest of all Greats. PW. 🥰 ❤️ eternity P²" she wrote.

The couple also enjoyed a very public date night in early February, when they attended the 2020 Academy Awards together.
Taking to Instagram, Pia shared several glam photos of herself and Patrick in their Sunday best, with Pia wearing a stunning Armani gown and Patrick in a smart tux.
She referred to Patrick as "my love" in one image, captioning the photo with the Italian phrase, "Mi amor 🖤".

But last year, the pair called it quits, and Pia has deleted all traces of Tyson from her Instagram page.
