Sophie Monk has been keeping her new man a secret for a while.

But the 38-year-old has finally revealed the hot spunk she met on a plane journey five months ago is married marketing executive, Joshua Gross. 

Despite still legally being married, Sophie has said he’s in the process of divorcing his wife and once that comes through, the world will be their oyster.

“When his divorce goes through we are talking about getting married,” Sophie told the Daily Telegraph on Saturday.

 “If we did get married, it would be on the Gold Coast in my back garden … just with family.”

She went on to explain in full how they met on a long-haul flight from Europe to Sydney back in June where they were sat adjacent to one another in business class.

“He was so cool, so much fun. Next minute I went ‘Are you single?’ and he said he was separated. Then I said ‘Can I kiss you?’” she said. 

The rest as they say, is history.

Two weeks ago the unlucky in love TV host had showed off her new man for the first time on her Instagram account, thanking him for helping her recover from surgery following her endometriosis diagnosis.

“So lucky to have this guy in my life to help me recover,” she posted along with an image of him dressed very dapper in a suit and sunglasses while he holds her in his arm. 

She followed that up with another snap of the two of them staring deep into each other’s eyes which was taken on a night out in Sydney’s CBD over the weekend.

“I’ve never been so happy,” she wrote, confirming the pair are dating.

With her recent comments about wedding bells, it seems her rocky road to love is well in the past.

Sophie’s endometriosis diagnosis

Just days earlier, Sophie revealed had undergone surgery at leading IVF clinic after being diagnosed with endometriosis – a debilitating condition that affects the lining of the womb.

She encouraged people to get checked as “many women live not knowing they have endometriosis”.

Sophie’s split from Stu Laundy

At the beginning of this year, Sophie confirmed her split from her Bachelorette love Stu Laundy after a short-lived romance.

“I don’t know how to explain this because it’s an unusual circumstance to be in…,” she said, making the announcement on Instagram.

“But because I entered this relationship so publicly I know I owe an answer to Australia about my personal life.”

“I gave it the best shot I could and my intentions were everything I said I was looking for, but unfortunately it just didn’t work out,” she added.

It definitely looks as if Sophie’s love life is on the up.
