Your relationship is finally out in the open! Is Dan The One?
We could start with why Dan isn’t The One and we wouldn’t be here for so long! I feel as if Dan is the small part of my heart I’ve been missing for a long time. He makes me so hopeful for the future and he pushes me each day to be better and to do better! He helps me when I’m down and celebrates with me when I’m feeling up, even if it’s a small win for the day he makes it front and centre and I value someone who can help change a mood so effortlessly.
Are you in love?
I’m very much in love with Dan. It’s new and it’s exciting – it’s hard to describe love. I feel as if my heart is full to the brim every day I wake up beside him.
How would you describe your chemistry?
Passionate and exciting! He’s teaching me new ways to love and be loved.
What are you most excited about now that you’re officially together?
Just to build on us and build on what we’ve gained.
Have you thought about how you’ll make it work long distance? Or will one of you move?
I’ve already made the move! My cards are all out on the table and it wasn’t a hard choice to make the move to him.
How is he different from everyone else you’ve dated?
Dan makes me excited for the future and I see things very long term with him in a such a short amount of time. He brings out a side of me I feel I’d lost a long time ago.
Do you have plans to meet Dan’s son?
We do have plans for that but [I’m] being respectful of such a delicate situation. Dan and I are working towards having a solid loving bond before he introduces me to someone who is so special to him. Children are so impressionable and I respect Dan’s choices as I feel this is his path, and I would never want to put any pressure to push it along faster.
How do you feel about being a stepmum?
I’m excited! I love children and I feel I have so much love in my heart to give to his little boy who is so special to him.
Have you talked about starting a family? How many kids would you want?
We talk here and there about it, always playfully, as we are still learning about each other and building on us. Dan already has one beautiful child and I would love to see us with three [kids] so I think another little boy and a little girl would be so perfect.
Mick and Tamara were left devastated by the truth of you and Dan. Where did you leave things with them? Have you and Dan reached out at all?
I know Dan has reached out to Tamara and Mick and I have had our small chats on it, but we both knew it would be insanely hard to keep a happy friendship with either of them.
If you could do anything differently during your time in the experiment – what would it be?
Dan and I would have left the experiment the second feelings started to develop between us. Looking back, we could’ve given it a real shot in the outside world. We are grateful for the ability to re-enter though, as it’s helped push our relationship to peak level.
Do you think Dan and your dad and brother will get along? What will they think of him?
My brother [Rhyce] and Dan have met over FaceTime and they absolutely love each other. My dad tells me every day how happy he is to hear that I’m happy and that he can’t wait to meet Dan and I know they will get along well.
How do you see the final two weeks of the experiment going for you? What do you hope to gain?
I just want to get to know everything about this amazing man!
I want to have a night where we just chill and talk about anything and everything.
