Television presenter and model Fiona Falkiner has confirmed her new relationship with girlfriend, Lara Creber.
The couple met while the 34-year-old was travelling through South America, she told The Daily Telegraph.
“I am just focusing on my own happiness at the moment and Lara is a big part of that. She makes me happy and that is all that matters,” she told the publication.
Earlier this week paparazzo photos of the couple published in Woman’s Day left Falkiner feeling violated.
“I felt shocked when I saw the pictures,” she told Cosmopolitan.
“I’ve been laying pretty low recently and I didn’t know that anyone was ‘watching me’ if that makes sense. Every time I see photos of myself where I was unaware someone was taking them, it does get you a little shocked and down.”
Falkiner said she was disappointed it was such big news that she was kissing another woman.
“There’s nothing ‘scandalous’ about it. Lara and I met on a trip to South America and I’m all about falling in a love with a person and yes, I’ve fallen in love with Lara.”
“This is the first female relationship I’ve had and I didn’t think there would be interest in it because it’s just normal life,” she said.
