The part-time model and retail assistant strolled barefoot through a beachside park as she and Todd found a place to sit.

Once seated, the newly minted couple enjoyed an impromptu picnic while eating takeaway on a blanket.

Once inside, they were seen smooching in the front seats.

In September, Vanessa had posted a photo to Instagram of the shirtless hunk painting in what appeared to be her living room.  

The post came several months after the model’s split from Baywatch star Zac.

According to various reports, Zac, 34, was introduced to Vanessa by her boss at Byron Bay’s General Store café in June 2020, and the pair hit it off straight away.

Two months later, in August, Daily Mail Australia revealed Zac had cancelled his scheduled return flight to Los Angeles because he ‘didn’t really want to go back’.

Within weeks, the genetically blessed couple had moved in together in Byron Bay.

Zac confirmed their relationship in September 2020 when they were spotted holding hands in public.

But it was revealed in April last year they had called it quits, with Zac’s friend Kyle Sandilands announcing on his KIIS FM radio show: ‘I can confirm [the break-up], after speaking with him yesterday.’

He also stated Zac had been dating Vanessa for much longer than reported.

There was speculation at the time Zac and Vanessa had known each other three years before their ‘official’ first meeting at Byron Bay’s General Store café.

Kyle, who is good pals with Zac, revealed on live radio it wasn’t just a rumour.

‘They’ve been together for a lot longer than people realise,’ he said.

‘I don’t know where they met, but it wasn’t recent. It’s been going for a little while, but I don’t know exactly how long.’
