While Roula’s rather fiery on-screen nature has caused shockwaves across Australia, behind the scenes she’s been busy preparing for a special year ahead.
The 34-year-old tells New Idea that her boyfriend of two years, Michael, is dad to a little boy named Charlie, and they’re making plans for the new family to live under the one roof in 2018.
‘My boyfriend has been away in Mildura for a year. He’s got a son over there so he’s been away with his son for a year,’ she tells New Idea. ‘He came back on the 20th of January for good – but it’s been very interesting having a long-distance relationship for a year, we only see each other every three weeks. But he’s oficially back and I’m excited.
‘He’s a builder and he just wants to build a home here for his son to come and move into and myself.’
Roula says she’s also hoping for another big reason to celebrate this year – a proposal! ‘We’re hopefully getting engaged this year – hopefully!’ she tells New Idea. ‘I’m hoping! I did hear a little rumour!’
