If public displays of undying love make you feel a bit queasy, best you look away now: We present five local celebrities who can't help but act like a lovestruck teenager when it comes to their sweetheart.

Pua Magasiva

Flava broadcaster and Shortland Street star Pua Magasiva wed primary school teacher Lizz Sadler last week, just 18 months after the couple met on Instagram. 

Given they met on the social media platform, it's no surprise Magasiva's Instagram feed is littered with loved-up shots with his new bride.

On Valentine's Day this year, Magasiva proclaimed to the world he couldn't wait to marry Sadler.

"We've been through trying times and more loving, beautiful moments together," he wrote of his partner. "I wouldn't want to share it with anyone else!! I love you to infinity and back which is why I can’t wait to call you my wife xxx Looking forward to tonight and to more special nights to come."

Following their wedding at Auckland venue The Riverhead, Magasiva got sentimental once again while talking to Woman's Day magazine about his romance.

"People might say this has happened too fast, but when love hits you with this intensity, you don't want to spend a second apart. I know we'll be together forever."



Erin Simpson

TV presenter Erin Simpson is one smitten kitten.

The former children's TV star has been enjoying a whirlwind relationship with Bachelor Zac Franich and told Woman's Day she can't bear to be separated from her beau for even a day.

"I don't like being apart from Zac as nothing makes sense when we are apart," she said.

And apparently Simpson can't stop shouting from the rooftops about her new love, telling the magazine her own mother has had to put her on a 'Zac-timer', where she only gets 10 minutes at a time to talk about him.

"I don’t even come up for air. I could talk about [Franich] all day," Simpson gushed.


Today these two made #futureplans

Kate Hawkesby

We don't know what the Hawkesby-Hoskings’ secret is, but Newstalk ZB broadcasters Kate Hawkesby and Mike Hosking always look like they're having the time of their lives when they arrive for work together at 3.30am each day.

Hosking doesn't really "do" social media, so it's left to his wife to bring the public declarations of love.

On their sixth wedding anniversary earlier this year, Hawkesby wrote of the "amazing" time they'd had so far.

"Six amazing years of you by my side making me endless cups of tea, reacting calmly when we keep adopting dogs without your knowledge, being our anchor, our consistently solid ray of sunshine & positivity, my best friend, and the reason we all get to laugh every single day," she told Hosking.

Nicola Robinson Evans

Former model Nicola Robinson Evans is completely and unashamedly in love with so many things these days: her stepdaughters, her horses, her pets, her farm, her 'Earth Suit', her Paleo diet... but her husband, celebrity chef, Pete Evans tops the list. 

Robinson Evans freely shares the connection she feels with her hubby when he's home from his many TV commitments, as these choice morsels demonstrate:

"I am in cosmic awe of YOU!"

"A LOVE that penetrates the veil of illusion & shines a light on the innate nature of BEING! YOU."

"Like all life on this planet, YOU my love, are infinitely DIVINE!"

Yep, she's in love, just in case that wasn't obvious enough.


I am in cosmic awe of Y😍U!

Angel Renall

Never mind marriage at first sight, it was love at first sight for MAFS NZ contestant Angel Renall (and her hubby Brett).

Ever since that fateful day on August 17, 2017, when Angel walked down the aisle towards "a rare specimen of Southern-Sign-Writing-Cheshire-Cat", the Renalls have been in their own little love bubble – and we've all been witness to it.

While sharing her thoughts on the new season of MAFS NZ due to hit our screens this year, Angel wrote in February: "It’s been 10 months since I applied for MAFS and now I've been married for nearly six.

"I'm trying to not be too cringe, but it has been the best months of my life."
