The Bachelor's Locky Gilbert and Irena Srbinovska may have taken the next step in their relationship if a comment on social media is anything to go by.

The pair posed for a selfie with a quokka on Rottnest Island on Tuesday and a comment that was spotted by Megan Pustetto of So Dramatic! podcast surprised fans.

Rottnest Island's Instagram account commented on the couple's snap, "Congratulations on your engagement! That's one 'Locky' quokka."

"Locky and Irena, do you have something to tell us?" Megan captioned a screenshot of the comment.

It's unknown if the comment, which appears to have been deleted, was a mistake or whether the pair did secretly get engaged on the island.

Locky and Irena have been sharing loved up snaps of themselves ever since the Bachelor finale aired in September.

Irena decided to move from Sydney to Perth with Locky. The pair recently left hotel quarantine together to start their new life together.

The reality stars have already had to deny engagement rumours last month after Irena shared a photo from hotel quarantine with what looked like an engagement ring on her finger.

However, Irena laughed off the rumours that Locky had secretly proposed, telling Daily Mail, "We're not engaged."

The ring was the one Locky gave her at the show's finale and the photo had been mirrored, making it appear as though it was on her left hand.

Bella 'dodged a massive bullet'

Meanwhile, Bachelor runner-up Bella Varelis has come out saying she believes she "dodged a massive bullet" when Locky chose Irena over her.

"I'm actually really grateful Locky dumped me... and I'm just really excited for life. At the end of the day, I absolutely loved Locky, and I really could see a future with him, she said on her YouTube channel.

"Every relationship and every person that comes into your life is a lesson, and Locky was just a big lesson for me."

She added that she wants to focus on herself at the moment because "guys suck".

Another interesting bombshell Bella revealed was that even if Locky had chosen her, she would have rejected him because she couldn't be with someone who was in love with two women.

The fact Locky told both Irena and Bella that he loved them was a huge talking point when the finale aired with many fans slamming the former Survivor star.

When asked whether she'd consider dating Locky again if he and Irena should breakup in the future, she said absolutely not.

"I'm happy for them both and I wish them the best, but I know this just wasn't supposed to be my happily every after," she said.
