Lauren Pope has posted an adorable photo with her new boyfriend weeks after going public with their romance.
Sharing a rare snap of the pair together, the The Only Way Is Essex star can be seen giggling whilst her handsome boyfriend looks into her eyes.
The 36 year old captioned the snap: “happy vals”, before fans were quick to reveal how happy they were for her.
“Oh this is cute. Congrats hun”, one person wrote, whilst another gushed: “Nice to see you happy”.
A third person quipped: “He’s a very very lucky man”, whilst a fourth joked: “Cheating on me i see”.
The Essex lass shared the news of her new romance with fans as she took part in a Q&A on her Instagram stories at the beginning of the year.
After a fan questioned whether she was single, Lauren responded with a candid snap of herself locking lips with her new boyfriend in front of a stunning backdrop, as she replied: “Nope,” alongside a heart-eyes emoji.
Now, according to The Sun, the identity of her mystery man has been revealed – and the gentleman in question is said to be Tony Keterman, who reportedly slid into Lauren’s DMs before wooing her on a date.
The millionaire hunk was once pictured kissing Big Brother beauty Imogen Thomas, and according to sources he and Lauren “hit it off straight away”.
A source told the publication: “Lauren and Tony met a couple of months ago after he approached her on social media and asked her out.
“They hit it off straight away. They’re head over heels and have just had a really romantic time in Thailand.
“He’s a millionaire, and not interested in being famous. He’s really into Lauren and this relationship feels different to previous relationships for her as he’s in his thirties and isn’t into drama.”
During the last series of TOWIE, viewers saw Lauren getting close to co-star Sam Mucklow – but she has since claimed they’re just friends.
