The 38-year-old told his followers over the weekend that he and his girlfriend Rebecca James have purchased their first home together.

“We bought a bloody house! In Sydney! Already drinking our way through the pain as we calculate the stamp duty #Pray4Us,” he captioned a sweet selfie of the pair posing with house keys and a bottle of champagne.

Rebecca, a stylist originally from Melbourne, also posted a photo on her social media to commemorate the occasion.

“Looks like I’m trapped with this guy now. Officially home owners,” she wrote alongside a heart emoji.


A number of Sam’s celebrity followers quickly took to the comments to celebrate the couple’s relationship milestone, including Delta Goodrem, Tim Robards and Rob Mills.

“Congratulations, we’ve all had to adjust our champagne tastes after buying a house though,” his Sunrise colleague David ‘Kochie’ Koch wrote, followed by The Morning Show’s Kylie Gillies with: “Larry can help with the move!”.

“Huge congrats to you both - one giant leap for mac-kind,” Melissa Hoyer joked, while Shane Jacobson added, “Can’t wait to share a wine on your home base… That’s if I’m invited!”.

“MASSIVE achievement to buy anything good in bloody Sydney! Well done guys!” SAS Australia star Erin Holland replied.

Nova host Ryan ‘Fitzy’ Fitzgerald also revealed that they are now neighbours.

The Channel Seven weatherman revealed in March he and Rebecca had met via Instagram in 2020 through a mutual friend, but couldn’t meet up in person as she lived in Melbourne and border restrictions were in place.

After six months of speaking “every single day”, they had their first dinner date and quickly realised they had feelings for one another.

“She makes me so happy and I’m absolutely delighted to share her with you guys,” he wrote online.

Sam’s social media post comes shortly after he was announced as a ‘wildcard’ contestant on the upcoming season of Dancing With The Stars.
