But which Bachelor franchise couples are still together, and what have they been up to since their show wrapped up?

Here’s everything you need to know – including the latest couple to announce the impending arrival of a new family member!

Tim Robards and Anna Heinrich.

Tim Robards and Anna Heinrich met on the very first season of The Bachelor Australia in 2013.

Before the show, Anna was working as a criminal lawyer, and Tim was a chiropractor.

Four years after meeting on The Bachelor, Tim and Anna announced their engagement in May 2017.

The next year, in June 2018, the couple wed in Italy, making them the first couple from The Bachelor Australia franchise to get married.

Just months later, the newlyweds took their relationship long-distance when Tim landed a role on Neighbours. As filming for Neighbours was based in Melbourne and Anna's work was based in Sydney, the pair spent several months living in separate states, which led to countless rumours about the pair breaking up, which the pair always denied.


In 2020, they welcomed their baby girl, naming her Elle.

On September 17 — almost three years after the birth of their eldest, the pair announced they are expecting a second child together in 2024. 

The Bachie couple shared their exciting news on Instagram with a sweet video of Elle walking around with a balloon under her shirt, where she pretends to be pregnant. 


"Mummy [is] going to get a baby too," she says on camera, adding that she believes her new sibling will be a baby girl.

Anna shared the video with a caption explaining that her daughter was indeed right. 

"Turns out Elle was right. Bringing another little rascal into the world 2024," she wrote.

Locky Gilbert and Irena Srbinovska.

After a season that kept us guessing until the last minute, Locky Gilbert chose Irena Srbinovska to be his one and only.

Two years after their season aired, the pair announced their engagement, and they married in March 2023.


After the show, the couple moved in together in Perth and kept themselves busy with camping, hiking and even more hiking. 

Sam Wood and Snezana Markoski.

Sam Wood met Snezana Markoski on the third season of The Bachelor in 2015. After meeting on the show, Sam gave Snezana a promise ring, which has been affectionately dubbed "the Cheezel ring".

As Snezana and her daughter Eve were based in Perth and Sam was based in Melbourne, the couple's relationship was long-distance at first. After four months, they moved in together in Melbourne, before Sam proposed in December 2015.

Initially, the pair planned to marry in Italy like fellow Bachelor alumni Tim Robards and Anna Heinrich, but those plans were soon put on hold when they learned that Snezana was pregnant with their first child.

In October 2017, they welcomed Willow Wendy Wood.

The next year, in November 2018, the couple married at Byron Bay's Fig Tree Restaurant. Snezana's daughter, Eve, was one of her bridesmaids and one-year-old Willow wore a matching lace dress to her mum.

In July 2019, Sam and Snezana welcomed their second child together, daughter Charlie Lane Wood.

In November 2021, the couple announced they were on their way to welcoming a fourth child.

"Filled with joy to share that we are expecting another little girl," Snezana wrote in a post to Instagram.


On May 4 2022, they welcomed their fourth, Harper, who was four weeks premature.

After almost four weeks in hospital, Sam and Snez were finally able to take their baby home.

Brooke Blurton and Darvid Garayeli.

The day after Brooke Blurton's Bachelorette finale aired in 2021, she and her winner Darvid moved in together. 


However, on January 2, 2022, Darvid announced the couple had decided to part ways after one month of publicly dating.

"Starting the new year off with an end to a chapter and hopefully the beginning of another," he wrote in an Instagram story. 

"Unfortunately Brooke and I have parted ways. Whilst we both genuinely thought we were each other's person, things change and that's okay. Please respect our privacy and that at the end of the day we are both just people with real feelings.


"Thank you so much for being considerate, a lot [sic] of lessons learned."

A few hours later, Brooke shared that she was surprised by Darvid's public announcement, despite saying it was a mutual decision. 

"Hey beautiful people, before my phone blows up. I just want to say right now I'm finding this really quite overwhelming and just as surprising to me as you guys," she wrote. 

"I just woke up to the news. It was definitely agreed to part ways. I just wanted to do it privately, amicably and respectfully. This is not how and what I expected to be doing right now so as you can imagine, this is all a lot. 

She added: "You will all have your judgements and have your say but there is a lot going on in my world and D's of course. So I again just ask you to be kind, we are human. I really do hope you respect some part of some what [sic] 'privacy' we do have right now because like I said, this was a surprise to wake up to just as much as it was for you guys."

Jimmy Nicholson and Holly Kingston.


Bachie season nine couple Jimmy and Holly have just tied the knot. 

At the time of the series, Holly said it was shocking to have met the love of her life on a reality show.

"You’re just doing all these amazing, grand things [on the show] and a camera is always there. It really just makes you want to do the simple things."

They got engaged during an Italian holiday in August 2022, and married in a small ceremony at Jimmy's parents' house on August 5, 2023.

Elly Miles and Frazer Neate.

Elly Miles and Frazer Neate broke up one month after The Bachelorette finale. While Frazer has been quiet about their decision to split up, Elly shared her own experience about their relationship. 

"From the second that I met him on the show... I was definitely drawn to him," she confessed on The Real House Husbands Podcast hosted by The Amazing Race's Tim and Rod Sattler-Jones.


"I look back to the moment when it was all happening and thinking he's great and stuff but in hindsight I think maybe he reminded me of two of my exes and that's why I was drawn to him. Maybe it was familiarity."

When asked about infamous cheating allegations, Elly revealed that she had been messaged multiple times on social media about his alleged antics. 

"How can you really know until that person admits it to you? Frazer has definitely not admitted that to me, he's definitely always denied it," she said.

"I had the highest hopes, I was very naive and I guess caught up in hoping the best for the situation."

The 2020 Bachelorette also went on to say, "I don't even know I'd call it a relationship. He might've been a bit of a s**t bloke but he was a great lesson."


Becky Miles and Pete Mann.

It was an unlucky season for love on the 2020 series of The Bachelorette. Elly Miles' sister, Becky (who joined her as a bachelorette) also parted ways with the man she chose at the end of the season, Pete Mann.

The couple announced the split the morning after the finale aired.

"We came into this experience wanting a fairy tale ending for the two of us, and while I am thrilled that Elly found her person in Frazer, unfortunately things didn't work out with Pete and me," Becky shared on her Instagram. 

"Although I wasn’t lucky enough to find my person this time around, I am grateful for this opportunity and leave with fond memories and no regrets," she wrote.


In an emotional interview with Nova 96.9's Fitzy & Wippa, Becky explained how Pete broke up with her soon after the finale was filmed.

"We filmed the finale, we had a couple of days together, they were really lovely days. 

"We left that saying, you know, we're going to miss each other, he was happy I chose him... When he got home to Adelaide, about three days later we had a FaceTime and he said 'Look I'm sorry I just can't do it'... I still feel quite confused, I'm not really sure [of Pete's reason]. He said that he didn't see a spark there."

Becky did end up finding love in 2021 though, with Newcastle local James Bevitron.

They welcomed a daughter, Billie Austin Bevin, in 2022.


Blake Garvey and Sam Frost.

In the second season of The Bachelor in 2014, things… didn’t exactly work out.

During the finale, Blake Garvey got down on one knee and made Bachelor history, proposing to his winner Sam Frost.

The day after the finale aired, viewers learned Blake had dumped Sam and begun dating Louise Pillidge, who came third on the reality show. The move earned Blake the nicknames 'love rat' and 'the most hated man in Australia'.


“When you have that time together and you feel that it’s not quite right, you have to listen to your heart,” he told The Project at the time.

“You have to trust your gut and that’s what I’ve done, and that’s why I’m in this position now.”

Blake and Louise dated for 18 months before they separated in 2016. Sam Frost went on to become the first star of The Bachelorette Australia.

After being dumped by Blake Garvey, Sam Frost became Australia's first Bachelorette and the first contestant to get a second chance at love.

Although Sam chose Sasha Mielczarek in the finale in 2015, the pair split up a year later.


She starred in Home and Away for five years from 2017 to 2021/ 

Sam is now engaged to Survivor: Blood vs Water contestant Jordie Hansen. They welcomed a son, Theodore, in March 2023.

Meanwhile, Sasha welcomed a baby girl with wife Carly Cottam in August 2023. 

"Introducing the new love of our life, Stevie Marie Mielczarek (good luck spelling that my little angel). Born 01.08.2023 and already has more hair than Dad," he shared on Instagram.

Richie Strahan and Alex Nation.

Richie Strahan was the second contestant to get a second chance in the franchise after coming third in Sam Frost's season of The Bachelorette.

In the 2016 season of The Bachelor, Richie chose Alex Nation and gave her a promise ring.

By August 2017, the pair had split up.

At the time, the breakup was largely unexplained. But in early 2019, the former couple sat down together on Bachelor in Paradise and had a long-overdue conversation.

During their conversation, Richie and Alex spoke about how their long-distance relationship had affected them both.

"I barely saw you. I needed to see you more," Alex said throughout the conversation, to which Richie argued that she had continued to "move the goalposts" and had barely visited him in Perth.


"[You weren’t there] when I needed you most — when I needed you — and you know what I’m talking about," Alex said.

Alex and her partner Carson Jory have two children, Maxwell and Pearl. Alex also shares her first-born, Elijah, with her ex-husband Joel Porter.


Georgia Love and Lee Elliot.

In 2016, Georgia Love chose Lee Elliott on The Bachelorette Australia.

After moving in together in August 2018, the pair announced their engagement in September 2019.

In 2020, Georgia, who also works as a Channel 10 reporter, launched her podcast Everyone Has An Ex.

"I realised there’s something really juicy and voyeuristic about hearing about other people’s failed relationships," Georgia told Mamamia.


"A bit of misery loves company, people who are going through their own heartbreak or their own bad situation, it’s really nice to hear about other people going through the same, or similar, or worse."

Georgia has also launched her own sleep and loungewear label, Georgia Elliott, with her friend Jess.

"I've had this idea about pyjamas for years and about a year ago I kept saying this, and no one's done it, no one's filled that gap yet, maybe I should just try," she explained on Mamamia's Lady Startup Stories. 

Georgia and Lee later tied the knot in March 2021.


Matthew 'Matty J' Johnson and Laura Byrne.

In 2017, Matty J, who was Georgia Love's runner-up, got a second chance on The Bachelor.

After telling winner Laura Byrne he loved her at the finale, Matty J and Laura moved in together in mid-2018.

In April 2019, the pair got engaged while on their 'babymoon', as Laura was pregnant at the time.

"You are my favourite everything. YES to a lifetime of love and flamboyant dance moves with you my honey," Laura wrote, sharing the news on Instagram.

In June 2019, the pair welcomed their first child into the world: daughter Marlie-Mae Rose Johnson.

Laura, who is a successful jewellery designer, launched her podcast Life Uncut alongside fellow Bachelor star Brittany Hockley in mid-2019. 

Matty and Laura welcomed their second child, Lola Ellis Johnson, in February 2021 and married in November 2022.


Sophie Monk and Stu Laundy.

Sophie Monk was Australia's first celebrity Bachelorette in 2017.

During the season, Sophie chose intruder and publican Stu Laundy.

Just three months after the finale aired, the pair announced their split, leading fans to question whether the couple's relationship was governed by a "relationship contract".

Now, Sophie is dating Joshua Gross, who she met on a plane.

"I had just finished filming Love Island in Mallorca and was on my way to San Francisco for a random TV gig with Channel Nine when I made a last-minute decision to go back to Australia. I sat next to Josh in business class and we started chatting. About two hours into the flight, I asked him if he was single. He responded, 'yes'. I then asked if I could kiss him. I was clearly out of practice and a bit of a nerd so I went to brush my teeth and thought, 'Let’s do this'. We had 16 hours to go," Sophie told The Sydney Morning Herald.

In January 2021, Sophie announced their engagement after two years of dating. 

"Told you I’d tell you guys first," she wrote. "I’m engaged. I honestly can’t thank you enough for all the love and support. I know I have the coolest people following me and you’ve always had my back and I feel so cared about. You’re absolute bloody legends. I’m not very good at being mushy. I’m trying to say I absolutely adore you. @joshuargross and I are so happy."


They eloped in 2022.

Nick 'The Honey Badger' Cummins.

In the 2018 season of The Bachelor, Nick 'The Honey Badger' Cummins didn't pick either of his final two contestants.

Instead, the rugby player dumped both Sophie Tieman and Brittany Hockley.

It was... a lot.

Nick returned to our screens for SAS Australia in 2020, where he became one of only three contestants to complete the course. 

Nick later went public with his girlfriend Alexandra George. While they keep their relationship relatively low-key, the pair often share sweet pictures of each other on their Instagram pages. 


They live on the Gold Coast together with their son, Billy.

Ali Oetjen and Taite Radley.

After the disaster that was the Honey Badger's season of The Bachelor, Ali Oetjen chose Taite Radley on her season of The Bachelorette.

They dated for two years before announcing in an Instagram post that they had broken up. 


"It is with the heaviest heart that we want to let everyone know that we have decided to take time apart in order to give each other space and time to fully focus on our own paths," Ali captioned the post.

"We both love each other deeply and only want the best for each other and both want the ultimate happiness for each other and hopefully our paths will reconnect again soon. [sic] We’ve decided to be open with this so there’s no speculation and so we expect love, respect and kindness in return. I love you Taite."

Matt Agnew and Chelsie McLeod.

In 2019, The Bachelor saw astrophysicist Matt Agnew choose Chelsie McLeod in his finale.

They split after six months of dating.


Chelsie has been dating model Ricki DeHaan since 2020.

In 2020, Matt presented his science show Dr Matt Agnew's Guide to Life Beyond Earth at the Adelaide Fringe Festival.

Speaking to the Herald Sun, the astrophysicist explained why he took a step back from the spotlight after the show.

"I did not come out of both the show and the relationship in great shape and I needed time with my close friends and family to pick myself up and put myself back together, really," he told the publication.


That said, Matt doesn't regret going on The Bachelor. 

"It has certainly given me the opportunity to continue to talk about science to a broad audience which is something I am really passionate about."


These days, he shares science content on Instagram and owns a non-alcoholic beer brand.

Angie Kent and Carlin Sterritt.

In the 2019 season of The Bachelorette, former Gogglebox and I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! star Angie Kent chose Carlin Sterritt over fan favourite Timm Hanly.

They announced their split in July 2020.

"Matters of the heart are extremely difficult and I'm sad to say that Carlin and I have broken up," Angie wrote on her Instagram story. 

In December 2020, Angie told Kyle and Jackie O that religion played a role in their relationship ending.

"He was very religious and he had all these ideas that I could or should be this certain way when I wasn’t," she said. 

"I don't want to be with somebody who wants me to change. I want somebody to love me for me."

Carlin married partner Emily Bradwell, who runs a photography and jewellery business, in March 2023.

Angie is a presenter on the Channel Nine lifestyle series Space Invaders, and hosts a podcast with her bestie and Gogglebox co-star Yvie Jones.
