Daily Mail Australia has reached out to the couple for confirmation.
This isn’t the first time Locky and Irena have sparked rumours they are engaged after moving out west.
Irena set tongues wagging when she posted a photo of herself on Instagram last month, wearing the purple sparkler Locky gave her on the show on her left hand wedding finger.

The jewel features a large purple gem in the middle and is flanked by two marquise-shaped diamonds.
Eagle-eyed fans and viewers of the show noticed that Irena is now wearing the ring on her left hand rather than her right, after Locky first placed it there during the finale.
The jewel is certainly memorable after it was ruthlessly slammed following the finale last month.

Fans of the show flocked to Twitter to mock Locky’s taste, including one who said: ‘That’s one ugly ring… but like Locky’s tattoos.’
‘What in the gumball machine plastic ring is that?!’ wrote another.
A third joked: ‘Only Locky would just bung a ring of that calibre in his pocket. When he proposes he will probably chuck the ring at her head while she cruises the block on a scooter in Bali.’

Locky caused controversy when he professed his love to both runner-up Bella Varelis and Irena.
In the end, he chose to end things with Bella to pursue a relationship with Irena.
He told her: ‘When I think about our future together, I’m, like, so excited and, like, I can’t wait to just travel the world and, like, make all your dreams come true.’
‘Irena, I’m so in love with you. And I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you.’
