Australian pop-singer Cody Simpson, 26, and 11x Olympic medallist Emma McKeon, 29, celebrated their one-year anniversary in April 2023, with Simpson sharing a heart-warming tribute to his girlfriend on Instagram.

“I look at her and light goes all through me,” wrote Simpson, adding, “1 year with you. Since I met you I’ve felt as though I’ve been living in perpetual sunlight. I like the sun because you can’t buy it, grasp it or possess it. You can only appreciate it when it’s there, feel it all over and let it make its way within. Love is quite the same. I love you.”

The couple confirmed their relationship in the lead up to the 2022 Commonwealth Games, with Simpson making his professional swimming debut alongside McKeon as part of the Australian swim team.
