When Home and Away star Sam Frost and former Survivor contestant Jordie Hansen went public with their relationship in March 2022, fans were shocked by the unexpected pairing.

But through public declarations of love, nonstop laughs and a mutual appreciation for the great outdoors, Sam and Jordie have proved they’re a match made in heaven!

Sam first hinted she had a special man in her life during a March 27 interview with Stellar, saying she’s “casually seeing someone”.

Two days later, Sam admitted to radio duo Fitzy and Wippa that she had struck up a romance with Jordie – who just happened to be her little brother Alex’s friend and Survivor co-star.

“When I bailed my brother up and I was like ‘oi is he single or what?’ and then he was like ‘ah don’t be weird.’ He’s like ‘you’re so embarrassing!'” Sam revealed.

“He’s younger. I’m a little cougar you know.”

From there, the milestones just kept on coming for the couple.

In July, Sam and Jordie revealed they had secretly gotten engaged back in late-May during a romantic getaway to Uluru.

Then, in September, the engaged couple revealed they were expecting their first child!

Not long after, Jordie jetted off to Samoa to film his second season of Australian Survivor (Heroes vs Villains).

”Sambo was nine weeks pregnant when I left [for Survivor] and that was very difficult,” Jordie told Now to Love.

”She was confronted with serious bouts of morning sickness and evening sickness so that was a tricky time to leave, and I really didn’t want to leave….but we had plenty of support from our families and she just booted me out the door, I didn’t get a choice in the end!

”She is an absolute warrior, she is the toughest person I know. I can’t wait, I’m so stoked, I just can’t believe it!”

To celebrate Sam and Jordie’s pregnancy news, let’s take a look at their sweetest moments so far.

Pregnancy announcement September 2022

In September 2022, Sam and Jordie were over the moon to announce that they were expecting their first child!

Taking to Instagram, the former Home and Away star shared a sweet picture of their ultrasound as she shared a kiss with Jordie, writing: “There is a tiny human coming soon… everyone act surprised when he inevitably inherits his parents odd sense of humour.”

She went on to say that she and Jordie don’t take life too seriously and they’re hoping to instil the same sense of frivolity into their little one, as well as “the importance of being unapologetically yourself, always finding the fun and humour in all the small things, and that being kind, loving and empathetic is a superpower ✨”.
