Australian actress and Nova FM radio host, Kate Ritchie, recently took a significant step in her relationship with Chevy Black, making it Instagram official.

The 44-year-old star, best known for her stint on the popular soap opera “Home and Away,” shared a video on her Instagram Stories, showing her enjoying a beach day with Black.

It’s some good news for Ritchie, who described the last twelve months as incredibly stressful, following drink driving charges.

The short clip, initially posted by Black, captured a radiant Ritchie embracing her dog, Annie, on a rocky cliff as the wind playfully tossed her hair. The beachside video serves as the first public acknowledgment of their relationship on Ritchie’s social media, igniting a wave of speculation and interest among her fans and followers.

Unveiling the New Relationship

Ritchie and Black’s relationship was first brought into the public eye in February, with exclusive photos surfacing of the couple enjoying a romantic picnic. Since then, the bond between the two seems to have grown stronger. Woman’s Day reported that Ritchie has been spending a significant part of her summer holiday with Black and his close-knit family, a sign of their escalating relationship.

Meeting the Family

The relationship appears to have evolved rapidly, with Ritchie introducing Black to her mother, Heather, and eight-year-old daughter, Mae. A source disclosed to Woman’s Day that Ritchie has also been introduced to Black’s family, including his mother and siblings, a substantial step indicating the seriousness of their relationship.

Who is Chevy Black

Black, originally from Taree on the NSW Mid North Coast, has been described by sources as a “kind and lovable type of guy.” His amiable nature seems to have struck a chord with Ritchie’s daughter, Mae, who has been spotted enjoying fun days at the park with her mother’s new friend.

Ritchie’s Journey

This new relationship comes after a tumultuous period in Ritchie’s life, marked by her split from her ex-boyfriend, John Bell, and her brave decision to seek treatment for alcohol dependency. In October last year, Ritchie announced she was taking a break from her career. She later revealed she had sought professional help to address her issues with alcohol.

In a statement, Ritchie described the previous year as challenging and stressful, resulting in an “unhealthy reliance on alcohol.” She further explained her decision to step away from her show “Kate, Tim and Joel,” and later, it was announced she would be moving to Nova’s drive show, “Fitzy & Wippa.”
