It’s the love story that gave us hope during this year’s season of Bachelor In Paradise.

After a false start on season two of BIP with Jules Bourne, Alisha Aitken-Radburn, 26, has found her happily ever after with Glenn Smith, 32.

After their first fateful meeting and that steamy massage date, the pair’s chemistry was instant.

And now, after months of speculation, the pair have revealed that they are indeed still together.

Taking a sneaky look back, the first clue came months ago, after some eagle-eyed sleuthing and a very compelling investigation over on fan account @Bachiefunny, who pointed out that in a promo trailer for the season finale, a man in a blue jacket can be seen embracing a blonde woman.

There’s no denying the blurry silhouettes certainly looked like Glenn and Alisha, while a male voice that sounds just like the handsome blonde said: “From the moment she walked in, I was in love with her.”

And interestingly, the pair join only Mary and Conor as the only remaining couples from the entre season, with Kiki and Ciarran, and Renee and Matt calling it quits shortly after filming.

While many speculated Glenn and Alisha were a thing, the spoiler didn’t come for lack of trying to hide it – in another coy move to try and throw viewers off the scent, Glenn and co-star Renee Barrett acted out a flirt fest on social media in a bid to deflect from the truth.

Fans had a little stalk back through Glenn and Renee’s Instagram accounts and found some very interesting comments the pair wrote on June 11.

Renee commented on a photo Glenn uploaded of his identical twin brother Neil, with the caption: “Love love love 😘😘”

Glenn then replied to Renee’s comment: “@reneejbarrett counting down the days until the borders open 😉”, to which Renee responded, “@glennsmith87 shouldn’t be long now 😉”.

You’ve got to applaud their commitment, but we saw straight through it!

In their adorable video update shared as the finale aired in August, the pair confirmed that they were indeed still going strong, and living together in WA.

The couple have been together for around nine months.

“It is so nice to finally be able to share publicly how important this man is to me (commitment ceremonies on national TV aside),” Alisha wrote on Instagram.

“I had always held out hope in a little corner of my heart that putting myself out there on The Bachelor would lead me to my person. And I am so grateful it led me to @glennsmith87.

“Seriously cannot wait to share all of our memories from the last nine months with you,” she finished alongside an IGTV clip featuring some seriously cute couple clips.

Just going to say it – these two are literally couple goals – long live Galisha! (Yes, this is henceforth their couple name…).

Alisha has relocated from Sydney to Perth to live with Glenn.
