After a “hectic” 2022, a happy Kate Ritchie was spotted sharing a kiss with a new unidentified man.
The former Home and Away star and AGT judge was captured on camera Wednesday while strolling along Sydney’s Bronte Beach with her new love.
John Bell, Ritchie’s ex-boyfriend, and her broke up in the latter part of last year.
The radio personality appeared to be over over with for her tall, blonde, and charming new beau, who was dressed for a romantic daylight stroll in black shorts, a dark grey T-shirt, and dazzling white sneakers.
In a button-down shirt, matching shorts, and Chanel sneakers, Ritchie exuded effortless cool.
A kiss on Ritchie’s forehead was planted by the “mystery man” as they strolled hand in hand. The happy-looking couple appeared to be in love.
The two were first seen together two weeks ago as Ritchie’s daughter Mae, from her marriage to retired NRL player Stuart Webb, joined them for an evening picnic at Coogee Beach.
Ritchie, who had a challenging 2022, can look forward to a pleasant start to the new year thanks to the new connection.
The well-known media personality left her radio show on NOVA FM last year to concentrate on her health and welfare after a busy schedule left her “weary” and in need of “re-energizing.”
In an official statement posted on the Nova website in October, she said, “I’m exhausted and I just need a break for a short while (to) have more time for me, and my family, to re-energise.”
She was the kind of person who “invested a lot of emotional energy into whatever I do,” Ritchie continued.
She cited her family, work, and recent radio and television work as priorities. She added that she had written a children’s book in her spare time.
“Recharge the batteries so you can start fresh the next year.
And even if it’s only temporary, I’ll miss you all. In the New Year, I’ll see you.
Ritchie provided a status post on Instagram in January, letting her followers know she would be going back to work at NOVA FM this year and that she was “doing well and thrilled for 2023.”
Ritchie was obliged to issue a statement the month before after photos of her taken in a Sydney private mental health clinic were published in an Australian newspaper.
Ritchie called the publication of photos of him entering and exiting the institution by The Daily Mail Australia “a horrific infringement of my privacy.”
Ritchie sent a message on Instagram a few hours after the Daily Mail published the images on its website.
She commented, “As previously said, I am taking a hiatus till next year.
The past year has been extremely emotionally taxing, as well as demanding in terms of scheduling, stress, and sleep deprivation.
“I realized that this had resulted in a bad alcohol dependency.
“I therefore made the decision to make the most of this opportunity by seeking the assistance I require from experts in this field.
“As everyone would see, taking this step is a very significant one for me.
“I genuinely appreciate all of your support,” you said.
