Tommy Little has shared the first picture with his girlfriend, Nat Kyriacou, to Instagram overnight, after seemingly confirming the relationship in his Stories in April.
In the photo, Nat is wearing a Denis Rodman basketball jersey, with The Project host and comedian captioning the pic: “Just subtlety suggesting who I should take to dinner with Dennis Rodman….”
Nat is the CEO at conservation social enterprise My Green World and a management consultant. She was awarded an Order of Australia Medal at 30, in 2018, for her work in wildlife and environmental conservation education, and profiled in that year’s Forbes 30 Under 30 list of social entrepreneurs. She’s been sharing pictures with Tommy since February this year.
The comments on Tommy’s post have since been flooded with people mourning the loss of Tommy from the dating pool, including the comment, “A million hearts break across Australia.”
Tommy has previously been upfront about his love life, including when he shared screengrabs last year to Instagram from dating app Bumble, where women consistently called his profile “fake”.
Talking to The Herald Sun in March last year, he declared he had “retreated” from online dating and described his private life as “an absolute mess”: “I’m lonely but it’s better than being on dating apps. I’ve put myself out there without success. The apps suck, it’s sh*t.
“I went on a couple of dates but it’s really hard because if I have a good date I go, ‘OK, I’m going to be touring, I can see you on Tuesday in two weeks.’ Not many women would say that’s great, that’s awesome.”
Tommy has been joked about as a “prolific dater”, and was last year rumoured to have been connected to two Bachelor contestants: Abbie Chatfield and Jessica Brody.
And it wasn’t Tommy’s first dalliance with women from The Bachelor. In 2014, the Herald Sun reported that Tommy was dating Chantal Hyrniewski, a contestant from Blake Garvey’s season, while Leah Costa, from Matty J’s season, apparently accused Tommy of standing her up for a date in 2017.
It’s not just The Bachelor either — Tommy called Davina Rankin from Married at First Sight on his radio show with Carrie Bickmore to ask why their 2017 romance had fizzled out, claiming that he kissed Davina while she was shooting the dating series.
We’re hoping that this time works out for Tommy!
