And in a n interview with Magazine+, Louise spoke lovingly about their relationship, saying: “People always say ‘it happens when you don’t expect it’ and I find that kind of condescending because I still think you need to put yourself out there — if you don’t, it’s going to be hard for you to meet somebody.

“I think when you’re totally ok by yourself, that’s when it’s a good time to meet someone.”
