Fifi and beau Damien go pub­lic

New Idea - - Contents -

Fifi Box, the TV and ra­dio star, en­joyed a Brady Bunch-style beach break with boyfriend Damien Richardson and their four kids at Phillip Is­land last week. The cou­ple – who have been dat­ing for 10 months – were all smiles as Fifi’s daugh­ter Trixie, four, frol­icked in the sun with Damien’s kids, Maisie, Lot­tie and Al­bert. It’s the sec­ond time that the Neigh­bours ac­tor’s chil­dren to for­mer wife Ni­cole have been spot­ted with Fifi’s daugh­ter – with Fifi and Damien spend­ing two nights away with their brood at the pop­u­lar Vic­to­rian des­ti­na­tion.

But while Damien stripped off to his rashie and board­shorts to take a dip in the sea with the four kids, Fifi chose to keep her­self – spark­ing ru­mours she might be hid­ing a baby bump – well and truly cov­ered up as they en­joyed the fam­ily day out.

‘Fifi couldn’t stop beam­ing, she was clearly hav­ing an amaz­ing time with Damien and all the kids to­gether,’ says an on­looker. ‘Her and Damien were jok­ing around with each other. It’s clear they’re all very happy.’

Fifi, 40, has made no se­cret of her deep feel­ings for 48-yearold Damien, who’s starred in a string of hit Aussie TV dra­mas in­clud­ing Mcleod’s Daugh­ters and Blue Heel­ers. The star reg­u­larly gushes about her new love in­ter­est and Neigh­bours co-star on her ra­dio pro­gram – even re­cently declar­ing to her lis­ten­ers that she be­lieves he’s ‘the one’.

‘I have been in


a re­la­tion­ship for a num­ber of months now and it has been go­ing re­ally well, and I am re­ally happy and we are en­joy­ing each other’s com­pany,’ Fifi re­cently ad­mit­ted to her Fox FM break­fast show au­di­ence.

‘I like him very, very, very, very, very much and I think he likes me. It would seem we are quite en­am­oured with each other.’

She also re­vealed: ‘On the week­end – Satur­day night, date night – and we thought of all the things, where shall we go, what shall we do, and then the fact that it was mu­tual, we ate In­dian take­away in bed, [and] watched Net­flix, al­ready I am go­ing this is it, this is ev­ery­thing I have ever wanted,’ she said.

‘...And then he went and got the choco­late.

‘He wanted to go back and get more choco­late. I looked at him as he walked off back to the fridge and thought: “I think you are the man for me.”’ NI
