There’s one thing about dating and relationships in 2017 that we know for sure: if it’s not on Instagram, it didn’t really happen.
That’s why the whole of Australia anxiously awaited the arrival of our newest Bachelor couple’s first loved-up selfies after declaring their love for one another on Thursday night’s dramatic finale.
We couldn’t eat. We couldn’t sleep. We couldn’t function until we had proof the love is REAL.
LISTEN: Once you’ve recovered from your heartbreak, tune in to hear Michelle Andrews and Zara McDonald discuss The Bachelor finale on Bach Chat.
Thankfully, on Friday afternoon, our wish was granted, with Laura posting a series of almost-too-adorable-to handle snaps on social media.
“Cats out of the bag kids,” she wrote, alongside an image of her new 30-year-old partner kissing her cheek.
The 30-year-old accessories designer added that she was "utterly smitten" with Matty.
The Bachelor himself also shared a message on Instagram, thanking the 21 other women who "took a massive risk" by applying for the show.
