Danny O'Donoghue has finally confirmed his relationship - after three years together.

The Script frontman (38) has been quietly dating Brazilian model Anne Anne De Paula (22) since 2014 and the pair went public with their romance on Tuesday night at the London premiere of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Danny, who previously acted as a judge on The Voice UK, said "Christmas came early" as he landed tickets to the exclusive showing with stars Mark Hamill, Daisy Ridley, Domnhall Gleeson and Gwendoline Christie all in attendance, but we couldn't help his not-so-subtle debut as a couple.

The Dublin-born singer beamed alongside Anne, who braved the chill in a fitted black dress with cut-out detail, and a simple black box clutch. It marks Danny's first high profile romance since he was linked to former The Voice UK contestant Bo Bruce, Lindsay Lohan and Tulisa in 2014.

Brazilian bombshell Anne shot to fame since featuring in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue and landed a coveted feature in the 2018 magazine too. And they make long distance work as she is based in New York, while he travels the world touring with The Script, but spends most of his time in London and Dublin, where Anne has visited a number of times over the years.

The pair met when Anne starred in his band's music video for No Good in Goodbye and were described as "inseparable" since first meeting. It's the same circumstances under which he met his ex-girlfriend of four years, Irish-Lithuanian model Irma Mali in 2009 before parting ways in 2013.

Back to NYC and it's snowing today!! ❄️🌬😣
