‘Congratulations Bon!!’ wrote Jemma Donovan of Neighbours.
Bonnie and Sam made their relationship public on November 1st of last year, when Bonnie posted a loving selfie of the two eating dinner.
Bonnie had reportedly split from her last lover Matthew Bushby just one month prior to the revelation of their romance.
Bonnie began seeing Matthew in March of last year, telling the Herald Sun that she was ‘in a really happy, confident place.’
Bonnie had a brief relationship with male model Brenton Goldsack before meeting Matt.
Bonnie got herself in trouble with the law in 2017 when she was accused of lying to authorities to protect her drug-abusing ex-boyfriend Matt Arnautovic.
In July 2019, she pled guilty to failing to notify authorities that Arnautovic was driving her car when he sped away from cops in 2017.
Bonnie was later released after the incident on a good behaviour bond.
