It’s been three years since Australians became invested in the love life of Sophie Monk on her season of The Bachelorette. And although her relationship with the season's winner Stu Laundy didn't go the distance, it seems Monk has now found 'the one'.
On Monday, Woman's Day reported the reality TV star is engaged to her boyfriend-of-two-years, Joshua Gross.
According to the publication, Gross, 42, proposed to Monk, 40, last week with a $25,000 'oval solitaire engagement ring'. The couple are yet to confirm the news.
Side note – Sophie Monk spoke to Mia Freedman about what being rejected in Hollywood is really like. Post continues after video.
Sophie Monk and Joshua Gross' relationship.
Joshua Gross, a neurosurgical robotics consultant, and Monk met on a plane in 2018.
"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," she explained to Sydney Morning Herald in June. "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."
