The Project host Hamish Macdonald has confirmed his relationship with his boyfriend at the recent GQ Gentlemen’s Ball in Melbourne.

The Network 10 journalist arrived at the gala event and walked the red carpet holding hands with partner Jacob.

Afterward, Macdonald posted a photo of he and Jacob hand-in-hand alongside a love heart emoji to Instagram.

The journalist’s Instagram followers were thrilled.

“Congratulations on living your truth and sharing your story with this image,” one person wrote.

“There are so many beautiful things about this photo,” another wrote.

Another wrote: “You go boys. So happy for you.”

Jacob first popped up on Hamish’s Instagram in April, posing alongside Hamish and two other friends.

Then a few days later, the journalist shared another image of himself and Jacob sitting on a beach in each other’s arms.

“Favourite human,” Hamish wrote in the caption.
