Lara Bingle and Sam Worthington have added fuel to reports that they’ve secretly gotten married after an incident on Monday resulted in Sam shouting to a paparazzo, “You kicked my wife.” This is on top of the hot Australian couple sporting simple bands on their wedding fingers.

Despite being openly affectionate towards each other, neither have addressed whether they’ve tied the knot, though it seems their actions could be doing the talking. Since getting together in October last year, the relationship has moved quickly — in its early stages it was documented by photos on social media, magazine exclusives and morning interviews with rival radio stations, and now it’s moved on to public appearances together on red carpets and at fashion shows. As Lara told the Kyle and Jackie O show when they first started dating, “When you know, you know.”

Get up to speed with Lara and Sam’s relationship timeline.



Lara Bingle, 26, told the Kyle and Jackie O show that she met 37-year-old Sam “about a year ago . . . We’ve been friends ever since, and then we saw each other recently in New York.” Pictured: Lara and Sam at the 2013 Global Citizen Festival in NYC.

Lara Bingle’s past romances have been well documented by media, but she also wears her heart on her sleeve — and on her social media accounts. Sam first popped up on her Instagram feed on Sept. 29, when she posted a photo of him in the front seat of a cab in NYC, captioning him, “The Fearless Navigator.” Sam has made a few more appearances on Lara’s Instagram — she currently has more than 265,000 followers — since then.

Reports of a relationship developing between Lara and Sam made the rounds in early October. They both flew into Australia on Oct. 9 and were spotted running errands together on Oct. 10. They confirmed their romance when they were photographed frolicking at a Sydney beach on the same day with their arms around each other, kissing. They also went grocery shopping on Oct. 11 and Lara was draped around Sam at the checkout.

He’s not one to usually make any public comment on his relationships, but Sam let his Instagram account do the talking when the very first photo he published was one of him and Lara on Oct. 15. He posted a second photo on Oct. 22 and wrote, “Sad and grumpy cos I had to leave my beautiful girl.”

Who magazine published exclusive photos of the loved-up couple on a boat in Sydney. No denying their feelings there!


Sam Worthington was interviewed by Fitzy and Wippa on Oct. 18 and played a quiz with the boys where he was forced to say the words “Lara” and “Bingle.” Then when Fitzy asked, “What’s going on?” Sam admitted to blushing and replied, “I’m very happy and I’ve met someone I’ve very grateful for . . . She’s down-to-earth.” He also admitted to feeling “smitten” with Lara.


Lara went on the Kyle and Jackie O show on Oct. 22 to talk about her Lara Bingle For Cotton On swimwear line, but naturally, talk turned to Sam. Kyle asked if their relationship evolved from a festival hook-up, which Lara confirmed. Lara said, “It’s gone very quickly, and everyone puts so much pressure on it initially. Thankfully we spent time together before he came to Australia last week.”

Sam is now in Amsterdam filming a movie, and Lara said she has plans to visit him. She also divulged that the couple “took Polaroids” as a memento, and added that Polaroids are her favourite kind of photo “because you can’t change it.” The radio station also noted that she was wearing a ring on her ring finger.


A sweet moment between Lara and Sam.
