Irena added the caption: ‘I got the man of my dreams and I couldn’t be happier. I love you so much @locklangilbert.’

Locky wrote: ‘I have always listened to my heart and it has lead me to this point. As hard as it was to say good bye. I was also saying hello to my future wife, baby mumma and best friend. I cannot wait to spend the rest of my life with you. 

‘Here is to one crazy adventure and so so many more with you babe.’

Thursday night’s emotion-filled finale of the popular dating series saw Locky choose Irena as his winner.

In a twist no one saw coming, the 30-year-old had told both Irena and Bella Varelis that he had fallen in love with them – leading both to believe they had won his heart.

But ultimately, it was down to earth nurse Irena who stole the burly adventure man’s heart – leaving Bella completely devastated.

 After a distraught Bella stormed off the set, Locky came face-to-face with Irena to give her the good news – telling her he ‘couldn’t wait’ to spend the rest of his life with her.

 ‘Irena,’ he began. ‘Every time I’m with you, I feel so safe and protected. It’s kind of weird, because I’m a pretty big dude, and not many people can make me feel like that.

‘But just when I’m with you, I feel so calm and comfortable, and it’s a pretty new feeling for me. I know you’re going to make a beautiful girlfriend, wife, mother, everything. You’re the whole, whole package.’

Locky had placed viewers on the edge of their seat, when he admitted he had his doubts.

‘However, my biggest fear is taht you’re not gonna be able to put yourself first, or tell me no. And in my partner I want drive and ambition,’ he said.

But then he turned to Irena and said: ‘And I think you’ve got that in spades. When I think about our future together, I’m, like, so excited and, like, I can’t wait to just travel the world and, like, make all your dreams come true.

‘Irena, I’m so in love with you. And I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you.’

‘I love you too,’ she beamed in response.
