The pair have often been spotted together at public events, playing sports and wearing insanely funny costumes for fancy dress parties.
She has been using the tags since May when she uploaded a video of her attending the Charlie Teo Rebel Foundation Ball.
“Last night we stepped into a world of glitz and glamor to raise awareness and much-needed funds for brain cancer,” the message read.
“Thank you Charlie for putting something extra in it! We love you.’
Another post was posted in June showing the couple dressed in 1920s party attire after attending a Great Gatsby themed party.
Both posts had the tags ‘#ilovemyfiance’ and ‘#myfiance’.

The pair “got closer” after Dr. Teo ended 30 years of marriage and broke up with his wife Genevieve Agnew in 2018.
dr. Teo, 62, and Ms Agnew met when he was 25 while working as a nurse at the hospital.
The neurosurgeon had discussed his relationship with his then-wife in several newspaper and TV profiles and public speeches, and his family regularly supported him at black tie galas for his brain cancer research foundation.
dr. Teo publicly announced that the couple had split up in a statement released in 2020 – stating that they “divorced two years ago but remain friends”.
“This is something that is completely private and confidential to us and not a matter of public interest,” he said.

The statement was made during a turbulent year for the famous but controversial neurosurgeon, famed for his reputation of taking on patients other doctors deemed useless.
There was also criticism of the surgeon over patients paying six-figure sums to fund their surgeries, with many turning to crowdfunding platforms, such as GoFundMe.
The high private fees were charged when patients went outside the public system, explained Dr. Teo out.
dr. Teo previously said he would receive about $8,000 to $15,000 from a $120,000 surgery himself, and the rest would be shared with the medical team and to pay the costs.
