Home And Away star Ada Nicodemou and her partner Adam Rigby’s love story is one for the ages.

From the way the couple met to the adorable selfies they share with her son, Johnas, Ada and Adam make for one very loved-up couple.

Ada debuted her new relationship at the 2018 TV WEEK Logie Awards not long after they met and fell in love.

“It’s such a great night,” Ada told TV WEEK. “And it’s always lovely to be able to share it with a partner. I love the Logies – it’s really special.”

Adam, a newcomer to the spotlight, had already become accustomed to Ada’s, er, habits.

“I could move house, renovate and she’ll still be getting ready,” he joked, as Ada playfully nudged his shoulder.

“I’m a typical girl,” she said with a laugh. “I love getting ready and trying on dresses.”

Adam and Ada met at an event, and as it turns out, the businessman had never seen Home And Away.

“We met at a work function and he had no idea who I was,” Ada recalled. “It’s kind of cool though, right? I like that he had no idea about the show.”

In an interview with TV WEEK Ada opened up about Adam taking on the role of a step-dad to son Johnas.

“Adam and Johnas adore each other; he’s such a great stepdad and has really stepped up,” she explained. “For a man to come into my world and love a child as if he were his own – and love me like I’ve never been loved before – is incredibly special.

“I rely on him a lot, which is a real first for me. I’ve never been able to do that before; I’ve always held the reins. So it’s nice to know he has our back – he’s a great man.

Hopefully that means plenty more adorable family snaps for fans – including photos from their recent Italian vacation in August, 2023.

Ada’s man was the perfect partner at the Logies in 2022, and made sure he stood just enough behind her that the lights were only on Ada but close enough so she could feel his support.
