Sophie Monk has shocked her 614,000 Instagram followers with a surprise announcement.
“I HAVE A HUBBY! 😃” she wrote.
“We eloped-ish at home. I can’t believe I met him on a plane! It’s crazy. Best flight of my life! I really do believe everything happens for a reason. I love you @JoshuaGross.”
“Thanks for putting up with how messy, disorganised and lazy I am. You’re my best friend in the world AND you are welcome for how hilarious my jokes are and how I absolutely smash you in Xbox F1! We’re both lucky 🤪.”
The Love Island Australia host, 42, and her neurosurgical robotics consultant beau Joshua Gross, 41, exchanged vows at their Central Coast home with hardly any guests as they held a wedding just for themselves.
The pair cover Stellar Magazine as they share the happy news with thousands of shocked fans commenting words of congratulations.
“Congratulations Sophie you deserve all the happiness in the world with your beautiful Joshua💝💝🍾🌈🌟,” a user commented.
“We always thought we’d elope, to be honest. So many people said to me, “I didn’t even see my husband on the night; if I had my wedding over, we’d just elope,” Monk told the publication.
“There’s the public side of Sophie, but having this private moment feels very “us”. We’re joined at the hip more often than not so it feels pretty natural. Now that we’ve done it this way, it just feels so right that I’m glad we didn’t take on any pressure to do it any different,” said Gross.
“This feels like our sanctuary. All my greatest memories are little things like having coffee here in the morning with Soph, and now I’m going to be able to sit out here and have coffee and be like, “That’s the spot where we got married”, or “That doorway is where we had our wedding photos taken!”
“I’ve told a few close family and friends, but they don’t know the day. I’m 42, so I feel like they’re like, OK, do it your way.”
