BEN CHILWELL went public with his gorgeous Australian model girlfriend with a romantic Valentine’s Day post.
The Chelsea footballer, 26, has just returned to action from another spell on the sidelines.
Now he has been struck down with the lovebug after falling for Aussie ‘It Girl’ Cartia Mallan.
The 24-year-old brunette took to Instagram to reveal their relationship with a series of posts.
She shared pics of the loved-up couple cuddling in front of a fireplace in what appears to be a cottage for a romantic getaway.
Chilwell, wearing a chequered knitted jumper, plants an adoring kiss on Cartia’s cheek as the model shows off a beaming smile.
She tagged the £50million Blues left-back on the photo and added emojis of two people and a heart.
Cartia also posted snaps of a large bouquet of red and pink roses, dubbed her “love language”, and then added a series of videos in red lingerie enjoying her special gift for her 520,000 followers.
She captioned them: “I love you, say it back!”
And for another, she added: “The beauty you see in anything is a reflection of the beauty in you.”
Cartia works for modelling agency Storm – which has led to work with Rimmel, Louis Vuitton, Prada and Dior – and also hosts the Common Chaos podcast with friend Ashton Wood.
The Brisbane star also hosts a beauty and fashion blog on YouTube with 485,000 subscribers.
She previously dated Australian actor and model Josh Heuston and was also linked with Jude Law’s son Raff as well as Aussie Rules star Bailey Smith.
Now, though, she is based in London and clearly head over heels with her new man.
The Daily Mail reported in December that Chilwell had flown his new partner to spend a week with him in Dubai during the World Cup break – after eagle-eyed fans spotted her cheering on the ace for Chelsea and wearing one of his shirts.
Chilwell, who has previously dated Holly Scarfone, Love Island star Joanna Chimonides and Lewis Hamilton’s ex Camila Kendra, has now recovered from a hamstring injury, coming on in the recent draws with Fulham and West Ham.
