Her fiancee looks very proud and can be seen wearing a Manly Longboard Co T-shirt.

The couple’s news comes just days after Kochie and Sunrise co-host Samantha Armytage ended their part-time hosting arrangements with Channel Seven.
The presenters were ordered to return to host the breakfast show full-time from September 21 after Nine’s rival program Today closed the ratings gap.
The hosts had been enjoying working four days a week, with newsreader Natalie Barr filling in for Samantha on Mondays and for Kochie on Fridays.
