Sunrise co-host Samantha Armytage may appear on TV every morning for all of Australia to see, but she’s rather private about her personal life and her relationships in particular.

But today she has introduced us all to her current partner Richard Lavender during an interview with WHO Magazine for the publications ‘Sexiest Together’ feature.

This is the first time that Sam and Richard have publicly acknowledged their relationship after meeting through a mutual friend in April this year.

Speaking about the moment on Sunrise Sam said, “Australia, meet Rich! WHO Magazine have done the sexiest people of 2019 and they invited us to be part of it.”

In the multi-page spread there are multiple photos of Sam and her boyfriend riding horses on his property in the Southern Highlands region of NSW.


60-year-old Richard is a former farmer and according to the interview, he had no idea who Sam was when they first met.

“I don’t think he even knew who I was,” she told the publication, revealing that she asked him to watch Sunrise a few weeks into their relationship so he knew what she did for a living.

The ‘Sexiest Together’ pairings include people from couples to siblings to co-stars and even best friends.

Other celebs that appear in the WHO Magazine feature include Guy Sebastian and Jules Sebastian, Cody Simpson and sister Ali Simpson and Channel 7’s Larry Emdur and Kylie Gillies.
