Alex, the single mother who won, and then lost, the heart of Richie Strahan on The Bachelor in 2016, publicly debuted her new beau in December.
The 28-year-old revealed on Instagram last month that she was in a relationship with Carson, a tradie who owns a floor and wall tiling business.
She shared a gallery of black-and-white photos of the couple on a camping trip, alongside the caption: ‘Nice to meet you, Mr Jory.’

They got engaged in December 2017, but split the following April. They remain friends.
