Aussie sweetheart Samantha Jade is engaged to boyfriend Pat Handlin.

Taking to Instagram, the singer shared the exciting news by posting a black and white photo of herself looking happier than ever in the arms of her new fiancé.

And of course, in the corner of the photo, is her dazzling new diamond ring.


The photo was captioned with a simple, “YES!” and congratulations have been flowing in fast.

Samantha and Pat – who is the son of Sony Music Australia CEO Denis Handlin – are believed to have been dating since at least June 2017. 

The speculation around their budding romance was confirmed when a photo of the 31-year-old former X Factor star and her man showed them holding hands and cuddling while shopping in Bondi, Sydney.


Previously the Firestarter singer dated Swedish music producer Christian Nilsson for seven years before their long-distance relationship came to an end in 2013.

However, after spending time focusing on her music career and releasing multiple albums, including her most recent Best of My Love, Samantha appears to be ready for that next chapter in her life – tying the knot.

And we can’t wait to see how the wedding plans unfold.
