Sophie Monk finally got her happily ever after as she gave her final rose to publican Stu Laundy in the finale of The Bachelorette Australia.

Now that the news is public, the Bardot singer is looking forward to being able to have a normal relationship with Stu and meet each other’s friends and family.

“It’ll be nice when it’s all over and I can walk down the street with him – just go to Coles and stuff,” she previously told TV WEEK.

“It will be a relief to just get out and do normal things again.”

Congrats to the happy couple!

While the show was on air, Sophie, 37, spent most of her time in Thailand with her best friend Oscar Gordon in a bid not to reveal the winner. But she – and Stu – admitted they struggled and even broke the rules a few times.

Both speaking on Hit105’s Stav, Abby and Matt show this morning, Stu said: “I was always a flight risk, I thought I was going to give it away months ago.”

Sophie added: “That’s why I went to Thailand because we were going to break the rules – well, we did a couple of times. We met up a couple of times.”

While on the Kyle and Jackie O show this morning, the pair were asked if Sophie had met Stu’s four kids yet.

“This is our first day walking out the house, like really, so we haven’t met anyone’s family yet,” Sophie said.

“Have you spoken about it?” a caller asked.

“Yeah I think down the track, yeah…” Sophie replied.

“What I found the toughest was that my children would be watching and emotions and it took me a long time to open up,” Stu revealed on Hit105’s Stav, Abby and Matt show.

“The kids would have found out last night with the nation but they know about the whole process. They’re big fans of Soph, like everybody. I’m thinking they’re pretty happy.”

“It’s certainly on the cards.”

Sophie has been open about her dream to have children soon, but with the news that Stu had a vasectomy (and that he’s still married), she was a little shocked.

However, Stu exclusively revealed to TV WEEK that he had his sperm frozen and can’t wait to be a dad again.

“There was always a plan B,” Stu says of his decision to undergo the procedure ten years ago.
