Maria Walsh is officially off the market as she confirms new romance with Emmy-nominated TV producer.
She has been single for two years but TV presenter has confirmed she is in a relationship with TV producer Shauna Keogh.
The Dublin-born documentary maker has been linked with the former Rose of Tralee winner since February when the pair arrived to a red carpet event together.
At the time, both insisted there was no romantic connections and their relationship was purely business-based as they worked on a number of TV projects together.
However, they now seem comfortable to go public with their relationship as Maria confirmed to Evoke that they have been a couple for "several weeks now".
The 29-year-old was joined by Shauna in Spain as she completed the Camino de Santiago and the glamorous pair enjoyed a short holiday in Spain.
Shauna has just returned to Ireland after spending 13 years living between London and New York.
The 33-year-old has worked on a number of successful reality documentaries, including Too Fat for Fifteen for the Style Network in the US which was nominated for a Daytime Emmy in 2011.
She's also the producer behind When Jordan Met Peter, a behind-the-scenes reality show with Katie Price and Peter Andre which aired on ITV2 , Kerry Katona: 12 Months of Mayhem for MTV and 40-Year-Old Virgins for Channel 4.
Like her ambitious girlfriend, Maria has been fortunate enough to carve her way into a media career since winning the Rose of Tralee in 2015, making regular appearances on RTE's Nationwide and The Seven O'Clock Show on TV3.
She's also launching a wedding and events planning business, while Shauna is currently working on a documentary for RTE which examines the struggles of growing up gay in rural Ireland.
