Photos of the couple holding hands while shopping in Bondi first emerged back in June 2017. The Sweet Talk singer never officially confirmed they were dating, however she reposted the snap to Instagram in July 2018.

Jade spilled to WHO magazine in December that he would be joining her family in her hometown of Perth for Christmas.

"We're going good, we're very happy!" she told the mag at the time.

The pop star previously dated Swedish music producer Christian Nilsson for seven years, before ending their long distance relationship in 2013.
