It's been a hellish year for Sam Frost.
She went through a highly publicised break-up with her Bachelorette boyfriend Sasha Mielczarek, openly acknowledged her battle with her weight and mental health... and then her radio show got canned.
But the thorns are shedding from the Bachie queen's life.
The beloved Aussie shared an Instagram story on Sunday evening, which featured a selfie with Dave... And she drew a pink love heart followed by the word "you."
The 28-year-old's life is certainly back on track with a brand new acting gig on Home and Away and a VERY hot new boyfriend, too!
Appearing happier and healthier than she has in months, usually private Sam let her hair down while enjoying a romantic date at Bondi’s Winter Wonderland with new boyfriend, navy diver Dave, last weekend.
And she’s finally feeling confident enough to open up about their relationship.
“I feel really blessed to have a friendship that has turned into something more."
"It’s nice to be able to share (my career success) with him,” Sam confessed.
Sam and Dave were first linked together on Australia Day, after snaps of them looking rather cosy, surfaced.
Since then the pair have been spotted together numerous times.
In May, the pair enjoyed a low-key date in Bondi - and they even wore matching outfits!
A source told Woman’s Day they saw them dining in Double Bay’s Brick Lane restaurant in February.
“They shared a kiss and Sam paid the bill.”
Then in late June, she ramped it up, sharing a series of Instagram videos, showing the pair hanging out at her house.
On top of being in love, Sam can’t wait to get her teeth stuck into her new acting role on Summer Bay.
“I grew up watching Home And Away and never in my wildest dreams did I think I would be on set and part of the cast,” she remarked, adding she was so excited when she got the job, she screamed.
We’re couldn’t be happier for you Sam!
