Last night, The Bachelor’s Richie Strahan made his final decision and ultimately confessed his love to 25-year-old single mum Alex Nation.

However, there’s one major step the couple have yet to take – Richie, 31, hasn’t met Alex’s five-year-old son yet!

Speaking with TV Week, Alex admits, ‘Richie and Elijah haven’t met yet. Just amongst the chaos with secret rendezvous and everything, I just said to Richie, “It’s best that you and Elijah meet once the dust settles a little bit and all of this chaos settles down. Just so you can really take it in and enjoy him and get to know him.”’

‘It will be soon, perhaps even in the next couple of weeks they will meet, but I didn’t want to rush that,’ she adds.

My heart is so full ❣ #elijah #elijahgeoffrey #motherandson #mybestfriend #littledude #legend #iloveyou #thisstud #handsomeboy

While keeping their love a secret for almost four months, Alex was careful who she told, revealing that Elijah only found out about Richie a few days ago.

‘I just said to him, “I just want to let you know that Richie is mummy’s special person and would you one day like to meet him?” And he was just like, “Well, yeah, I already thought I was!”’

Cute! We can’t wait for these two to meet.
