The two have been together for over six years, having first got together in October 2017. However, despite appearing as strong as ever, their relationship hasn’t always been smooth sailing…

Skye and Lachlan were in the midst of multiple break-up rumours at the start of 2024; however, it was later revealed that the two managed to work through whatever issues they were having by attending couple’s counselling.

“We trialled co-parenting, so I would have the kids two nights then he would have the kids two nights. After a little bit doing that, [Lachlan] was like, ‘Okay, you can come home now,'” Skye shared to TikTok. 

Since working through their troubles, they now appear together regularly looking very much in love in the various posts on their social media accounts.
