The newly engaged couple is pictured cuddling an Australian Shepherd puppy, with floppy ears and bright blue eyes.

Captioning the pictures, Locky and Irena wrote: “Then there were three…”, before adding the puppy’s name Odin Gilbert.

The pair have already started an Instagram account dedicated solely to the puppy, and have shared some more sweet videos.


In one video, Odin is pictured sitting on Irena’s lap in the car, before settling in at his new home.

Locky and Irena’s celebrity pals couldn’t get enough of the puppy, with The Bachelor’s Alisha Aitken Radburn writing: “Stop, I’m coming over!”

The Block couple E’lise and Matt gushed over the photos, saying: “Agh, look at that face! What a cutie pie,” while The Bachelor’s Bec Vilikas kept it simple with four heart-eyed emojis.

Locky and Irena announced their engagement in early June, when they posted a photograph of the pair sharing a kiss while showing off Irena’s Larsen Jewellery engagement ring.

The Bachelor star popped the question at the Grampians National Park and Irena proudly displayed her ring in front of a stunning waterfall.

Locky and Irena’s return to TV

This comes shortly after Locky and Irena announced their return to TV together.

Last week, the pair revealed that they were guest hosts on the Channel Seven series The 4WD Adventure Show.

The latest episode saw Locky and Irena drive their new caravan over 300kms from Perth to Pemberton in rural Western Australia to explore the area.

They showed off their adventures at Beedelup Falls, settled in at the Pemberton Caravan Park, and went four-wheel driving through both the Warren National Park and Yeagarup Dunes.

Locky, who worked as an adventure guide in Bali before his reality TV career kicked off, wrote on social media that he had “the best time” filming with Irena.

“So glad we get to do my dream job together,” he added.
