The Aussie beauty queen opens up about their budding romance in the January issue of The Australian Women’s Weekly, revealing their relationship is so serious Buddy recently met her parents.

“It’s the first time I have felt strongly enough about someone that I wanted my parents to meet him,” the 22-year-old blonde tells The Weekly.

“I was never going to bring home someone I was just dating or someone I was having a fling with.”

The meeting was a huge success, much to the relief of Jesinta who had been worried Buddy’s bad boy reputation would cloud her parents’ view of him.

“It went really well,” she says. “It was nice for Lance to finally meet the people in the world who are most important to me, and for them to meet the person who is most important in my life right now.

“We decided to do brunch and, at 5pm, I was ushering Mum and Dad out the door. I think it’s safe to say he was a hit.”

The couple aren’t yet living together but are spending “pretty much every night” at Buddy’s Bondi bachelor pad.

Jesinta says they’re “very happy”, hinting she hopes marriage and children are in their future.

“In five years’ time, I definitely see myself starting a family,” she says.

Asked if there might be someone in her life right now Jesinta would consider doing that with she replied: “Maybe! I’m not going to let you put words in my mouth, but that’s definitely a position I’d like to be in!”
