This First Dates couple have fallen in love!
Kelly and Tommy reveal they’ve fallen in love after meeting on the dating show
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.
