My Kitchen Rules – Pete Evans Engaged

new idea cover

It has been a good few weeks for Pete Evans judge/host of My Kitchen Rules. The show is rating strongly, his new cookbook is a best seller and now he is in engaged to his girlfriend Nicole Robinson (previously Watson). Pete met the former model in 2011 and credits her as being the influence for his healthy lifestyle.

Both Manu and Pete are now engaged it will be interesting to see who gets to the altar first. Pete say his will be a small wedding next year so maybe Manu will be married first.

Of course the story was sold to New Idea.

The Daily Mail (via New Idea) that the engagement was a spur of the moment thing.

‘There we were in New York talking away and I said: “Gosh, if we ever get married, taking our loved ones on holiday would be a wonderful way to do it” and Pete’s eyes lit up as he thought about the opportunity for another surfing trip.

‘Of course I began to cry tears of happiness when he replied “Right, let’s do it, let’s get married.”

‘We both felt overwhelmed with love!’

Robinson is yet to get her engagement ring, wearing a ‘temporary’ crystal one instead, but said she has her eye on a pounamu greenstone ring from New Zealand.

Pete has two children to his former partner. Nicky was previously married to NRL Warriors team owner Eric Watson.

Oh she’s a total catch & so is he. They suit one another… good luck to them.

This is a very strange quote. Essentially, what Nicole’s saying is that when they mentioned getting married, she cried tears of happiness because she felt overwhelmed with love. While Pete’s eyes lit up as he thought about the opportunity for another surfing trip.

Pete: last of the true romantics.

Not much food would be needed at the wedding reception so they will save money on that at least!

They are on paleo diet doesn’t mean they don’t eat. In fact they eat more meat and that actually cost more.

Good luck to them and hope it lasts.
