Things aren't just heating up in the Celebrity MasterChef kitchen but also in Melissa Leong's love life.
The notoriously private television host and food writer gushed about her new beau on Instagram, and she appears absolutely smitten with Rob Mason.
Melissa is relatively lowkey about her life, but perhaps it's a sign things are becoming more serious between the couple now that she's sharing more of their relationship on the gram.
Over the weekend, the 39-year-old celebrated Rob's shorter hairdo by sharing two pictures of his new look on her Instagram Stories.

She applied a black and white filter to the photo as he stared seriously at the camera.
"New man," she joked.
Melissa then posted a mirror selfie with Rob's arm around her waist, and she shared, "I no longer have the shortest hair in this relationship."
However, capturing her love's beauty transformation was not enough for the food critic who went a step further by sharing pictures of Rob on her grid.
During the airing of Celebrity MasterChef, she posted two selfies of them laying on the couch, with one serious pose and another goofier one.
She lovingly captioned the images, "This is us."

Earlier in the night, she had already posted an ode to Rob, and she opened up more than ever about her feelings towards him.
"Luckiest girl in the world," she wrote.
Of course, Mel isn't the only one making grand romantic gestures online; Rob also shared the same pictures on his socials.
Mel broke the news of her new relationship in early September 2021, a mere eight months after her divorce from Joe Jones.
In celebration of Father's Day, she paid tribute to Rob by uploading a stunning black-and-white photo similar to her most recent shares.

"Gratuitous hot dad post, a day late," Melissa penned on Instagram.
"Creator of world class cosmetics and the brains behind @morrismotley, brilliant father to a legendary babe squad and the best part of my day, nothing but love @therobmason 🖤."
The big reveal came after a weekend of dating rumours sparked when Melissa shared several Instagram Stories about Rob.

One of the posts included a photo of herself preparing breakfast with Rob's daughters, where she captioned it: "Breakfast tacos for the squad."
She then uploaded a photo of Rob on Father's Day and wrote: "Hottest dad. Cutest babes."
Rob also shared a candid shot of Melissa to his own Instagram, where she commented that it was "just the beginning."
