It’s a narrative we’ve seen play out in plenty of romcoms – boy meets girl, pair become best friends, support each other through other relationships before falling (or realising they have always been) in love with each other.
The pair met in 2004 when she was 23 years old and radio host Blake was 21 years old at an event that doesn’t sound quite as glamourous as we’d expected: it was a “horrible men’s deodorant launch thing.”

And while they’re adorably loved up now, it wasn’t love at first sight.
In fact, in an interview with Fairfax Media’s Good Weekend, Foster Blake revealed that she actually felt no physical attraction towards Blake at all. (“No offence, honey” she said to him after.)
Want to know how Zoe Foster Blake does it? We asked her just that.
However the pair quickly established a lasting friendship for years while both dated other people, during which they wrote a dating book Textbook Romance together which was published in 2009.
“I had never met anyone like her – confident, hilarious, obviously beautiful and very full of fun and life. I’ve come to know it as the Zoë magic,” Blake told the magazine.
When they were both single in 2010, their relationship began to change.
“We had a few conversations and it slowly unravelled,” Foster Blake said.
They were married in December 2012 and had their son Sonny in May two years later.
