It comes just days after Christina told Daily Mail Australia she recently got to spend some time alone with Brenton away from the cameras.
‘We hung out in Sydney a few weekends ago and got to spend some time together for the first time away from cameras,’ she said.
Christina added that Brenton ‘is a really charming boy to look at’ and ‘quite solid eye candy’, before detailing how their relationship developed on the Seven show.
‘I really feel like it was organic,’ she explained.
‘I feel like the love story with Mitchell [Spencer] may have been pressured because I was obviously very uncomfortable, but with Brenton it was very natural and free-flowing.’
