Now that Blake Garvey and Louise Pillidge have made it public knowledge that they're a couple — they made their first official appearance together at the Melbourne Cup last week — they're all about showing their love on social media. They had to wait until all the exclusive deals were done before they could be free with their affection on Instagram, but after kicking things off with snaps from their Thailand holiday the other week, they've now progressed to proclamations of love, couple selfies and snaps with Louise's family.
The candid photos mark the first time we've seen their relationship away from TV crews and cameras, and heavily styled photo shoots . . . And we have to say, it's nice to see a more intimate and natural aspect to their relationship, which has been plagued by scandal since it was confirmed Blake had gone back to Louise, the second runner-up on The Bachelor, after proposing to and then breaking up with Sam Frost.
While both Blake and Louise have growing online presences, they still have a while to go until they match Sam's numbers — she currently has more than 125,000 Instagram followers, and is living it up in Vietnam on a 10-day tour with Lisa Hyde.
