Sunrise weather presenter Sam Mac has made his relationship with stylist Rebecca James ‘Instagram official’.
The Channel Seven star shared a cosy photo with his new girlfriend on social media on Saturday night.
In a lengthy caption, the 38-year-old revealed that he met “Bec” after being “introduced on Instagram last year” by a mutual friend.
“Bec lives in Melb, and I’m in Syd, so the Victorian border restrictions meant it was illegal for us to meet in person,” he explained.
“Here’s where it gets cool. We very quickly struck up a great friendship. Insta chats, phone calls, Friday zoom drinks, we spoke every single day for almost 6 months!
Sam said it was “surreal” to finally meet Bec in person for a romantic dinner when border restrictions eased last year.
“By this stage I felt like I knew everything about her…except if she was interested in being more than friends,” he wrote.
“We knew each other so well, but also not at all.
“It’s not entirely relevant to the story but I want the fact that she was 24 minutes late to be on the record,” he joked.
The breakfast TV star added: “Eventually, over a few Harry Potter marathons & a glass or two of Zonzo, we discovered we were both feeling exactly the same.”
“We were just so cautious about ruining the friendship.”
Sam Mac described his new girlfriend as “super driven” and said it was her “calmness and kindness” that he was “drawn to.”
