‘Forever grateful for everything that lead me to you. I love you endlessly, my Harley Bonner,’ she finished. 

Harley also gushed over gorgeous Natalie, who he called ‘my precious darling sweetheart’ and his ‘endless inspiration’.

‘Your warmth shines bright on a life already full of light. And somehow you’re still FREEZING cold at night!’ he wrote lovingly.

 

‘Happy three years, my girl. To the honeymoon phase with no end in sight – how could I possibly love you more? I guess I’ll find out in the morning. – Your Harley Bonner,’ he added. 

The couple are believed to have started dating in 2017, shortly after Natalie ended her engagement to personal trainer Dan Adair. 

Harley recently quit Home and Away after less than a year on the soap.  

He posted to Instagram in January to share a few words about his exit, saying he was ‘very happy’ as he thanked fans for their support.

‘Thanks and love to you all,’ he wrote, adding: ‘I’m very happy. Life’s good. Keep spreading kindness.’

 It was the first time Harley has spoken out since the network confirmed over the weekend he wouldn’t be returning to the show when filming resumes this year.

A Seven spokesperson told Daily Mail Australia: ‘Channel Seven can confirm Harley will not return to Home and Away when filming resumes in the coming weeks. 

‘Harley leaves with our best wishes and sincere thanks for his work on the show.’ 

Harley made his debut on Home and Away in August as handsome trauma surgeon Dr Logan Bennett.

Dr Bennett was the love interest for Salt restaurant owner Mackenzie Booth, played by Emily Weir.

Harley is the son of actress Carla Bonner, who played Stephanie Scully on Neighbours from 1999 to 2010 and later from 2015 to 2018.

He previously starred on the Channel 10 soap himself as Josh Willis from 2013 until his departure in 2016, when his character was killed off.

Last year, Natalie had surgery to correct the curvature of her spine caused by scoliosis.   

At the time, she shared confronting X-ray photos to Instagram following her surgery.

The images reveal the metal rods and screws which have been attached to her spine.

She revealed that behind her picture-perfect Instagram feed, she had been fighting a secret health battle with scoliosis, a condition that causes the spine to bend sideways. 

In a previous video on her Instagram Stories, Natalie said she was both ‘excited and terrified all at the same time’ about the operation. 

The beauty stepped out shortly after the surgery in July on a walk with Harley and their pet pooch.   

Natalie is one of Australia’s hottest modelling exports and recently shot a campaign with Guess in the United States. 

She The Sunday Telegraph’s Confidential in 2002 that she feels grateful to have started her modelling career in Australia, as opposed to New York or Paris.

‘I’m pretty lucky, I’m supported with my body shape and my size [in Australia],’ she said. 

‘Having Australia as my introduction into the modelling industry was so much luckier than if I was to start out in New York or Paris,’ Natalie continued.  

‘I think as the industry has grown, it is gravitating towards a healthy shape.’ 

Despite the pressures that come with looking good in a bikini, the stunner takes a more relaxed approach to her diet.    

Natalie previously told Daily Mail Australia that she once became ill and depressed after quitting sugar and carbs in a bid to lose weight.  

‘I went off sugar and got really confused and felt sick and depressed,’ she said.

‘I cut out all fruits, all carbs, I don’t know what I was doing – it was nuts. I actually don’t remember what I ate, I kind of blocked it all out.’   

Having previously shot campaigns for the likes of Speedo and Just Jeans, Natalie is is a regular fixture at Miami Swim Week.
