Watch­ing sparks fly as blonde beauty Kelly gig­gled with her blind date Tommy, it was hard not to get swept up in their mo­ment.

The na­tion fell in love with the cute cou­ple last week when they de­cided they wanted to con­tinue dat­ing af­ter meet­ing in the First Dates res­tau­rant.

And now, New Idea can re­veal Kelly and Tommy are still go­ing strong – de­spite liv­ing in dif­fer­ent states!

‘It’s been three months since we met, and two weeks ago, we made it of­fi­cial,’ says Tommy, 27.

The loved-up duo agree it was ‘love at first sight’ when they met on the show.

‘I could see her re­flec­tion as she was walk­ing in... I was like: “I think I’m al­ready in love,”’ Tommy says, laugh­ing.

And Kelly, 29, couldn’t agree with her beau more.

‘It was [love at first sight], I was very im­pressed,’ the real es­tate en­tre­pre­neur ad­mits.

Even the slight hic­cup of learn­ing Kelly was a di­vorcee wasn’t enough to de­ter the love­birds from fall­ing for each other in the end.

‘I think ev­ery­one has their past and there’s a rea­son why it’s all in their past,’ Tommy rea­sons.

‘I wasn’t ex­pect­ing her to say she was di­vorced be­cause she’s so young, but I was close to get­ting mar­ried as well around the same time as Kelly, so I can re­ally un­der­stand.’

The young pair now spend ev­ery week­end to­gether, al­ter­nat­ing be­tween their home cities of Mel­bourne and Syd­ney.

‘Kelly had promised me she would make the trip down to Mel­bourne for our sec­ond date,’ clean­ing com­pany owner Tommy re­calls.

‘I hon­estly didn’t think that she would ac­tu­ally come down, and then when she ended up fly­ing down for the week­end... that was it, we were on.’

Kelly and Tommy plan to con­tinue with their longdis­tance re­la­tion­ship for now, which they are happy with, but mov­ing in to­gether isn’t to­tally off the cards.

‘We still spend more time to­gether than most cou­ples would dur­ing the week,’ Tommy ex­plains.

And while it’s still too soon for mar­riage and kids, they have met each other’s fam­i­lies and friends.

‘If we didn’t see a fu­ture to­gether, then we wouldn’t be dat­ing,’ Kelly rea­sons.

First Dates airs Tues­day, 7.30pm, Chan­nel Seven.

Tommy and Kelly hit it off from the very first mo­ment in the First Dates res­tau­rant!
