‘This bump in the road will only make the real deal day even more special. Thanks to all our family and friends for the best wishes.’

Andy didn’t give a reason for the postponement, however it’s likely that recent lockdowns are a factor. 

The TV star revealed he proposed to the 29-year-old beauty during a romantic getaway in New Zealand last year, before borders were closed.

Andy, who has been dating Alex since 2016, said he was incredibly nervous about the proposal from the moment they flew out of Melbourne Airport.  

‘I was so scared about the ring going off in the scanner at the airport and having to drop down on one knee and propose in front of the security guards,’ he told  TV Week magazine. 

When it finally did come time to drop down on one knee, things didn’t exactly pan out they way he hoped it would.

Andy said he wanted to find the most romantic spot he could on a ‘nice secluded spot on the beach’, but was forced to change plans when they arrived to a crowded stretch of sand. 

After finally finding a a quiet spot in a nearby headland, Andy asked for Alex’s hand in marriage.

‘She was so shocked, she basically collapsed on my shoulder,’ he recalled. ‘I pretty much had to ask her if it was a “yes”. She was very shocked,’ he said. 

The couple first sparked rumours they were engaged when Alex was spotted sporting a giant diamond ring on her left hand wedding finger when the pair stepped out for a romantic stroll in Melbourne in April last year.
