Keira Maguire wasn’t attracted to boyfriend Jarrod Woodgate at first

She fell deeply for Jarrod Woodgate on Bachelor In Paradise.

But Keira Maguire has admitted it wasn’t exactly love at first sight when they met on-set of the Channel Ten dating show.

Speaking to OK! magazine on Thursday, the 32-year-old said she was reluctant to get involved with the Bachelorette runner-up because he had just split from Sophie Monk.

‘I was surprised he was there. He’d just broken up with Sophie. I was like ‘I’m not going there,” she said.

‘Imagine being the girl who breaks his heart for the second time on TV? But I got to know him better.

She added: ‘When I [arrived], I thought Luke [McLeod] was hot and then Sam [Cochrane] and I connected. He was the only one I could see myself going further with… There was an instant connection.’

NW reported this month that the ‘engaged’ pair are living together in Melbourne, with Keira moving into his home.

The blonde’s alleged relocation from Sydney to Melbourne comes after a recent show promo revealed a man, thought to be Jarrod, getting down on one knee to propose. 

Speaking to TV Week earlier in the month, the vineyard manager said he was in a great place in his life.

‘I’ve never felt so good – I’m in such a good place right now,’ said Jarrod.

He also added that he would definitely be interested in marriage, but was just waiting for the right girl.
