My Kitchen Rules favourite Luke Hines is officially out and proud after revealing his boyfriend in the latest edition of New Idea magazine.

Hines met Tyron Lawless at a business lunch six months ago and said he instantly felt the spark.

“My first thought was ‘Wow, he’s stunning! I need to know who that is,” he told the mag.

“Eventually, I got up enough courage to give him my number. I think I asked him to call if he wanted to have a coffee.”

The 31-year-old personal trainer also explained that it's a relief to finally be honest about who he is.

“Hiding it is just exhausting. You should live your truth.”

The couple has only been together for six months but say they've thought about taking their relationship to the next level when same-sex marriage is legalised in Australia.

“But that wouldn’t change what I feel about Ty. We’re totally committed to each other whatever the government does, and that’s what really matters.”

Hines was a finalist on My Kitchen Rules in 2013 with his friend and fellow trainer Scott Gooding.

We're so proud of you Luke and we wish you and Tyron all the best!
