Erin Molan shared a hilarious photo of her boyfriend. Now, she’s paid the ultimate price.

Earlier this week, we reported on NRL Footy Show host Erin Molan‘s hilarious Instagram photo of her boyfriend, Sean Ogilvy.

This photo, to be precise.

Yep, while the 34-year-old presenter was keen to get out of the couple’s villa and enjoy everything Bali has to offer, it seems her policeman partner, 40, had other ideas for their holiday. That is, catching a plethora of Zzzzzzs.

It won’t come as a surprise that, after sharing the slumber selfie with her 130,000 followers, Erin’s premonition “he will not be happy I posted” was bloody spot on.


Why? Because today, fans were treated to this:

“All’s fair in love and war,” the TV personality captioned the image of her asleep on a plane.

“It would be hypocritical of me not to post the revenge snap… (despite the fact mine is MUCH less attractive). #nofiltercouldmakethishot #catchingflies#planesleeper #eeeeew”

While the unfortunate selfie is sans saliva dribble and one awkward-half-opened-sleep-eye, we’ve gotta give it to Erin: it’s freaking brilliant.

(… And proof that you should think twice before sharing an unflattering photo of your S.O.)

In July, Molan shared the adorable story of how she and Sean met, explaining he was too nervous to approach her at the Coogee Pavilion in Sydney.

“I saw him and just thought, ‘oh he’s really gorgeous’,” she told Show and Tell. “I’d broken up with a fairly long-term partner about four months before and that had been a pretty horrible breakup, so I wasn’t really interested in anything else.”

“A girlfriend went over to get drinks [and had to] ask him to come over, and it went from there.”

Their relationship is something that has been incredibly healthy for Erin, who has spoken about the impact of cyber-bullying and anxiety before.

“He’s really lovely, and he makes me better,” she said, tearing up. “He makes me feel better about myself. I guess when you’re in our industry, it can be very insecure and very lonely. And I’m just very lucky.”
