Samantha Armytage confirms new romance: "There are good things happening"

Samantha Armytage has confirmed that she is in a new relationship after splitting from Brisbane-based businessman Paul O’Brien earlier this year.

Speaking on the Kyle and Jackie O Show on Tuesday morning, the Sunrise co-host shared some details about her “secret lover”.

“I’m happy to talk about everything except the secret lover,” said Armytage at the beginning of her radio interview.

When host Kyle Sandilands pressed for details, she said, “There are good things happening. There’s some interest – I’m in a good spot in my life.”

The 42-year-old said she is not ready to go public with her new relationship. 

“I never talk about anyone until you’re 100 per cent sure, like until you’re almost married to them,” she explained.

“The people I date don’t want to be in the papers.”

When asked whether her colleague and co-host David Koch knows about the identity of the secret man, Armytage said she has not introduced him to anyone close to her yet.

“I tell [Koch] nothing. He can’t keep a secret for 30 seconds!”
