Ever since Georgia Love broke his heart in that 2016 Bachelorette finale, the nation has been desperate for Matty 'J' Johnson to find his one true love. And just a year later, he did!
When jewellery designer Laura Byrne walked into the Bachelor mansion, she said that if the experience ended up as her love story it would be a "fun and hilariously beautiful way to meet someone," and who would've thought they would find that love story.
Speaking to NW when he'd narrowed his choices to six girls, Matty said, "The chemistry Laura and I have, it hits me every time we're together. When I'm with her it feels so natural and I never want our dates to end. I knew she could be right for me the day after our first date – I simply couldn't fault it."
The gorgeous Sydney couple have not only shacked up together in the city's eastern suburbs but in December 2018 announced the exciting news that they are expecting their first child together due in June.
