“Can’t ignore the numbers. First date 23/02/23. One month later 23/03/23,” Narelda wrote.

Narelda Jacobs opens up about coming out struggle

Narelda was previously in a relationship with filmmaker Stevie Cruz-Martin until just a few months ago.

The presenter and journalist was brought up in conservative Christian family and has recalled growing up, struggling to accept her sexuality after being taught gay people would go to hell.

“I buried my sexuality so deep because of how we were brought up,” she told the Sydney Morning Herald.

“[My mother and I] have great conversations about all sorts of things. But there are certain things we just don’t talk about,” she said.

“I would love to be able to talk about relationship stuff with my mum, but I know that I will never be able to.”
