Italian-American model Fabio Lanzoni has revealed he wants an Australian wife.

The ’90s heart-throb made the admission during an interview on Studio 10 with co-hosts Sarah Harris and Tristan MacManus.

The trio were discussing the model’s return to Australia when Sarah enquired about a rumour that Fabio, 62, was supposedly yearning for an Aussie wife.

‘Yes, yes, it’s true,’ he responded. ‘Actually, Australian women, to me, they’re the most down to earth. They’re beautiful inside and out.’

Fabio told the presenters those kind of qualities are what he’s after in a woman.

‘That’s what I’m looking [for] in a woman,’ he added. ‘Somebody down to earth and beautiful in and out – the entire package.’

Tristan then told Fabio he had actually moved from his native Ireland to Australia to be with his Australian wife, actress-turned-producer Tahyna MacManus (née Tozzi).

‘You don’t have to tell me; I moved here for one,’ he said. ‘Best decision I ever made.’

‘Women in Australia will be absolutely thrilled you’re looking for an Australian wife,’ Sarah concluded.

Fabio has reportedly never been married and has no children.

Earlier this year, he revealed he had retired and was hoping to settle down with a wife and children.
