Underwood was relatively unknown to those outside the Eastern Suburbs until she made a name for herself in 2012 starring on the reality TV show Being Lara Bingle.
Underwood made his mark for his fling with Lara’s brother Josh — much to the dismay of her best model friend. There was a rumor between the two, and Underwood left Sydney for London altogether in 2014. She rebranded herself as a fashion and travel blogger and later worked on handbag and jewelry brands, before taking on the reins last year as British CEO of the vitamin brand. JS Health.

He popped the question with a square-shaped diamond with the bride-to-be announcing their engagement on Instagram last week.
