Former RTE presenter Diana Bunici has described her musician boyfriend Steve Garrigan as "nice, humble and shy" - not what you would imagine your typical rockstar to be like.
While she is currently based in London while Steve lives at home in Swords, North County Dublin, the tv presenter insists they make it work.
The duo have been dating for over a year, after they were introduced by mutual friends.
Moldovan-born Diana told YOU Magazine that she knew nothing about Kodaline before the sparks flew.
"I think I knew All I Want and obviously I'd heard Grey's Anatomy. Kodaline came up but Steve would not be the kind of guy to say, 'I'm in a band!'"
"He's really nice and humble and quite shy and doesn't have an ego about him - he's not as you would imagine a rockstar to be," she laughed.
"He's just an amazing guy who is extremely talented and works really hard and is in a band that's successful. When I meet someone I don't judge him or her on their status or if they're famous or their job - If I get on with them, I get on with them."
The 26-year-old beauty did admit that she Googled him when she got home after their first date.
"I remember seeing he wore black eyeliner," she recalled.
The former Elev8 host is determined to land her dream job in London and said she is committed to knocking on every door until it happens.
"London has the potential to swallow you up. I don't know a lot of people there but I've worked super hard to arrange lots of meeting, introducing myself to various producers and production houses and talent scouts.
"I'm ambitious - I know where I want to get and what I need to do and I'm confident in what I have to offer - but I'm not an ego. I know my passion so I can't doubt myself," she concluded.
