Rebel and Jacob – founder of organic ice cream brand Napps - first met through mutual friends in 2019 but only went Instagram official in September last year, when they attended the Planetary Health Gala in Monaco together.

Jacob has been a big support for Rebel during her recent lifestyle overhaul. The actress dedicated 2020 to getting fit, dubbing it her "year of health". And her hard work certainly paid off; she recently hit her target goal of 75kg.

She also revealed: "I've tried, like so many women out there, I've tried fads and diets and things before and I’m like, I need to do a really holistic approach to this, this time.

"My diet was mainly all carbs," Rebel added. "Which were delicious but for my body type, I needed to eat a lot more protein."
