Top model Teodora Sutra has confirmed she is off the market.
The 25-year-old has been one of Ireland's most eligible ladies since splitting from ex-boyfriend James Murphy early last year.
When asked about her experiences on the Dublin dating scene, Teo revealed she has been quietly seeing someone for the last few months, although she remained tight-lipped on the mystery man's identity.
"I have a boyfriend, so I'm not dating anybody but him. It's only very new, only six months," she told the Diary.
Speaking at the announcement of the winners of the Future Makers Awards & Supports Programme by the Design & Crafts Council of Ireland, the Latvian native admitted she was not looking for a relationship when she started dating her boyfriend.
"The right person always comes along, so I was never like, 'Oh I want to find somebody.'
"I was always like, I don't want to find somebody and then I think when you're in that mindset someone always pops up," she said.
Despite her striking looks, the model insisted she was very reserved when it came to meeting someone new.
"I am very shy until I get to know somebody, then people get to know me and they're like, 'you're nuts'."
Teo and her former boyfriend James, who is a personal trainer, were the toast of the Dublin social scene while they were dating.
"I tell her all the time that she's beautiful," James previously said during the couple's relationship.
"She should model internationally and do big things worldwide, but she doesn't realise she has an amazing look.
"When I see her at home, she is being goofy or in her pyjamas, but when she's working, she's up there with the very best."
Teo, who recently attended the Forbidden Fruit festival, is looking ahead to a summer of fun with her pals.
"Forbidden Fruit was so good, the weather was amazing and people were happy," she said.
"I don't think of it as a festival, it's more like a cool event on in the city. It finished at 11 so you go home, sleep, wake up the next day fresh as a daisy and you go back.
"My plan this year is to take as many holidays as I can. I'm going home for two-and-a-half weeks in July and then I'm going to California for three weeks in August.
"I'm going with some friends. We're renting a car and doing a massive route across California.
"It's kind of a circle that you do, it's about 3,000 miles. I think it is going to be a really good road trip," she said.
