The 42-year-old Channel 9 co-host left the mum-of-two speechless after surprising her in her hometown of Canberra, joking, “I don’t think I’ve ever, in my life, had this effect on a woman.”
"What other time can we do it," Stefanovic joked. "The kids are at school, your husband's at work, it's our time to shine, don't you reckon?"

Speaking about the first time they met four years ago, Johnson said, "At first I thought, you know, I only had six or 12 months to live. And I've had all of this extra time and I'm grateful for it, especially with my kids, but I guess what a lot of people don't see is that that's really hard to get out of bed in the morning."
