“Power of the Dog” star Kodi Smit-McPhee, 26, and girlfriend Rebecca Phillipou have taken the next step in their relationship, and it’s a big one!
During a rooftop proposal last week in Melbourne, Smit-McPhee presented Phillipou with a ring set with round diamonds.
Smit-Mcphee Has Engaged To His Longtime Girlfriend, Rebecca Phillipou
Kodi Smit-McPhee has announced his engagement to longtime girlfriend Rebecca Phillipou, who is also an Australian. In a rooftop proposal in their hometown of Melbourne, Australia, the 26-year-old Oscar-nominated actor proposed to his longtime girlfriend on Friday, December 2.
On his Instagram Story, Kodi shared a picture of himself on one knee and putting a ring on Rebecca’s finger. There was also a picture of Rebecca looking shocked in the picture.
One source says after Kodi surprised her by slipping a magnificent ring on her ring finger, “She was so surprised, but completely over the moon. They’ve been a couple for almost nine years, and after purchasing a home together last month, they are ready to take the next step in life together.”
Kodi had a beautiful rooftop covered with gorgeous all-white flower arrangements, pink flower petal confetti, and sizeable white marquee letters spelling out M-A-R-R-Y M-E. Then, looking out onto the Melbourne skyline, he got down on one knee and proposed. It was such a precious moment.”
An Overview Of Kodi Smit-Mcphee And Rebecca Phillipou’s Relationship
Several reports have stated that Smit-McPhee and Phillipou have known one another and began dating at some point in their high school years. There was also a report, published in March 2022 on Pure Wow, that Phillipou had posted her boyfriend’s picture on her Instagram handle for the first time in 2013 when they first met. However, the actor was still in his teenage years at the time, approximately 17 years of age to be precise, when he starred in the film.
It was revealed in an interview with Variety in February 2022 that Smit-McPhee was planning to have his girlfriend with him throughout the awards season and even take her along as his plus-one to attend the 94th Academy Awards as well.
As promised, the 26-year-old actor was spotted with his beau at several awards shows this year, including the SAG Awards 2022 and the 94th Academy Awards. He had taken his girlfriend to several awards shows and red carpet-events, but it was not the first time he had done so.
During the premiere of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes in 2014, Smit-McPhee and Phillipou were the first couples to walk the red carpet together when both of them attended the premiere. The tradition of getting together has continued at public events since then, and it has become a tradition that has stuck.
In addition to taking Phillipou to public events, Smit-McPhee has also been known to flaunt cute pictures with Phillipou on his Instagram account and take him to these events. Furthermore, he has posted six posts on his Instagram handle that involve Phillipou, followed by several more posts involving Phillipou.
The same could be assumed of Phillipou’s Instagram handle, so she has likely adopted the same practice. As a result of all of the above, it is only reasonable to assume that the couple has come a long way since they first started dating, and their relationship has only grown stronger.
Who is Rebecca Phillipou?
Rebecca Phillipou has been Smit-McPhee’s girlfriend for a long time, and the two have been together for quite some time. Her heritage is believed to be Australian as well.
As Phillipou has always maintained a low profile, there is very scant information available about her, as little is known about her. Phillipou held a public Instagram account before Smit-McPhee became internationally famous.
It has not been the case for the last few weeks, however. Phillipou has now made her Instagram handle private, making it much more difficult for others to peek inside her accounts. Moreover, the actor has not revealed details about the person he is dating.
Having become engaged, we can also expect to hear the sound of wedding bells shortly. Let’s see how long it will take them to announce the news of their wedding. We’ll keep you updated with more celebrity gossip until then.
