She recently revealed she was planning to wed her new boyfriend Joshua Gross.  

But Sophie Monk, 38, ditched her new beau on Wednesday afternoon and took her father Andrew Monk as her date to the ARIA Awards, held at The Star in Sydney.

Her dad, who regularly appears on her Instagram feed, was clearly excited to be there, proudly flashing his ‘Mr Monk’ T-shirt under his suit jacket.

Clad in a strapless white princess gown, Sophie dropped jaws while posing up a storm beside her joyful dad.

The blonde beauty’s frock featured a form-fitting bust, a tutu-inspired skirt and was cinched at the waist.

She teamed the attire with black Christian Dior pumps, a studded clutch and silver hoop earrings.

Her flaxen tresses were styled in romantic waves and she sported a glowing complexion with neutral makeup. 

Earlier this month, the former reality star underwent endometriosis surgery, and her father was often seen looking after her while she recovered at her family home.  

Meanwhile, Sophie recently revealed her plans to marry new boyfriend Joshua after meeting him on a long-haul flight from Europe to Australia five months ago.

During an interview with The Daily Telegraph last Saturday, Sophie confessed that as soon as Joshua’s divorce from his ex-wife is finalised, there’s nothing stopping them.

‘When his divorce goes through we are talking about getting married,’ Sophie told the publication while gushing over her new man.

The star then revealed the upcoming nuptials would likely be ‘on the Gold Coast in my back garden.’

She went on to explain the wedding would be an intimate affair with close friends and family.

Reflecting on her former relationships, Sophie added: ‘I have waited and gone through so much s**t to meet someone so good’.

Sophie’s last public relationship was with Stu Laundy, who won her heart during The Bachelorette on Channel 10 in 2017.

However, their relationship soon fell apart after the show finale aired last November.

It seems Sophie will be keeping this romance a lot more low-key, admitting that Joshua ‘doesn’t want publicity.’
