The pair have been dating for less than a year.

“Fiona and Hayley have been seeing each other for about four months, but have been trying to keep it as quiet as possible so they could enjoy getting to know each other without the public glare,” a source told Woman’s Day in January.

“They spend most days together now and are almost inseparable.”

The source said the couple had been thinking about getting engaged for a while.

“Fiona has told her friends that she has never been this happy, and getting married to Hayley is definitely something she would love to eventuate,” dishes the source.

“They know their relationship is solid and is going to keep growing into something beautiful.”

Fiona “came out” publicly for the first time in 2017, when she revealed she was dating personal trainer Lara Creber.

Lara was Fiona’s first same-sex relationship. The pair split around April 2018 after dating for a few months.

At the time, Fiona said she was very “happy” with Lara and not focusing too much on the chatter on social media about her sexuality.

“This is the first female relationship I’ve had and I didn’t think there would be interest in it because it’s just normal life,” she told The Daily Telegraph.

“I’m at a place in my life where I’m just focusing on what makes me happy and not caring what other people think and focusing inwardly.”

She said she was surprised her sexuality had become such a hot talking point.

“I was just a bit disappointed that it is such big news that there are photos of me kissing a girl,” she said.

“There’s nothing ‘scandalous’ about it. Lara and I met on a trip to South America and I’m all about falling in a love with a person and yes, I’ve fallen in love with Lara.”
