Jake’s Married At First Sight co-stars were quick to inundate his post with comments.

Jason Engler cheekily commented: ‘My man ❤️ Kissed a few frogs but found your princess!’ before adding that he couldn’t be happier for him.

Jake’s new romance comes just six months after he announced that he split with Gold Coast influencer Sophie Guidolin.

The reason for their split remains unclear, but Daily Mail Australia understands no third parties were involved and no cheating was suspected.

At the time, Sophie, 32, had been the target of trolling since going public with Jake, and this may have put a strain on their romance.

‘It’s sad because they seemed really in love, but they just couldn’t make it work,’ a close friend told Daily Mail Australia back in May.

Jake had to keep their relationship under wraps at the time because his ‘marriage’ to Beck Zemek was still playing out on season eight of Married At First Sight.
