1 min read

The pair met through a mutual friend.

Sunrise host Sam Armytage has confirmed her new relationship with 60-year-old Richard Lavender.

The 43-year-old TV star spoke with WHO Magazine - as part of their Sexiest People issue, mind you - to spill the means on her new BF.

The secret to her successful relo?

“I don’t think he even knew who I was when we first met,” she told WHO magazine.

Samantha also praised Rich for being "decent" and "very honest" man whom she met through a mutual friend "around Easter".

The established businessman also told the magazine he liked "the sparkle in her [Sam's] eye" as well as their shared interest for horses and the outdoors.

The romance was rumoured for a hot minute with Sam telling WHO Magazine in June:

"There are good things happening… I don't talk about anyone before I'm 100 per cent sure, because you have to keep some things private."
