Sophie Monk and her fiancé, Joshua Gross have welcomed a new member to their household, with the TV host saying: “I’m so in love”.

Sophie reposted Joshua’s Instagram stories, which shows her looking besotted with the white furry dog, alongside the caption: “New addition to the family, Bluey.”

A video shows Bluey looking absolutely delighted as he runs around outside the couple’s home, with a big smile on his face.

Sophie and Joshua became engaged in January this year, with the iconic former Bardot singer taking to her Instagram account to make the announcement.

“Told you I’d tell you guys first,” she wrote, alongside a ring emoji.

“I’m engaged. I honestly can’t thank you enough for all the love and support. I know I have the coolest people following me and you’ve always had my back and I feel so cared about. You’re absolute bloody legends.

I’m not very good at being mushy. I’m trying to say I absolutely adore you. @joshuargross and I are so happy.”

Sophie looked stunning in her announcement photo, holding on to her future husband’s face as she revealed that Joshua designed the ring with her favourite Aussie designer, Luke Rose.

Sophie and LA-based businessman Joshua first began dating at the end of 2018. At the time, she told KIIS FM’s Kyle and Jackie O Show that they’d only met once before they decided to make things official.

Sophie was on a flight back from Europe, with the Love Island host sitting next to Joshua on the plane in business class.

After a few champagnes with Joshua, who had no idea who she was, Sophie knew “it was on”.

Feeling confident, Sophie asked him on the flight if they could kiss, but only after they both gave their teeth a good brush first.

After her mile-high make-out session, Sophie revealed she was officially off the market. However, she’d only met the guy once and he lived overseas.

“I’ll have to meet up with him one day,” Sophie said laughing.

After that, things moved pretty fast for the pair and Joshua relocated from LA to the Gold Coast to be with Sophie in 2019.

Since then, they’ve regularly updated their followers with loved-up snaps on Instagram, with the pair constantly looking blissfully in love.

Sophie has been engaged at least twice before, first to Benji Madden of the band Good Charlotte and then multi-millionaire businessman Jesse Esberg. She was also previously linked to Aussie actor Sam Worthington and American TV personality Ryan Seacrest.

Before dating Joshua, Sophie appeared to find ‘the one’ in wealthy publican Stu Laundy during the 2017 season of The Bachelorette, but the pair split just a few months after the show’s finale.
