They’re young and gorgeous — and Spy’s favourite celebrity couple.

All Black heart-throb Nehe Milner-Skudder, 25, and his stunning partner, 22-year-old actress and law student Hanna Tevita are the IT couple of the moment.

Both are celebrating success in their chosen fields — and neither can hide their pride in each other’s achievements.

The glamour couple stepped out in Auckland on Wednesday night to celebrate TVNZ’s reboot of Terry Teo, which stars Tevita.

Milner-Skudder — currently re-habbing from shoulder surgery — looked at ease mixing with the show’s stars who include Kahn West (Terry Teo) and funnymen Leigh Hart and Mark Wright.

Tevita plays Terry’s sister Polly Teo in the reboot, which launches on TVNZ OnDemand on Tuesday.

Polly is Terry’s moral compass and polar opposite, which makes for a fiery dynamic whenever they’re together.

"Terry and Polly were brought up in completely different environments. When their parents split up Terry goes with their mother who is associated with crooks, whereas Polly goes with her father who is a police officer. Her father’s morals are embedded in her and this is where that strong persona comes from."

It’s not just her budding acting career that’s keeping Tevita busy. She is also working at Massey University as a research assistant and is studying towards a Master’s degree in management and a graduate law degree.

"The law degree is definitely keeping me busy but I’m enjoying it and love that I can be a part of things such as Terry Teo that don’t feel like work — it’s a nice escape."

Last week Tevita was alongside Milner-Skudder to celebrate his Te Waita award for sport at Maori Television’s Matariki Awards.

"I was very proud of him at the Matariki Awards," a beaming Tevita told Spy this week.

"I’m proud of all of his achievements so far, It was great travelling up to England to see him play in the Rugby World Cup last year. At the moment we’re both just focused on our own lives, as we’re extremely busy. His recovery and rehab is a big focus at the moment for him."
