Home and Away stars and real-life couple Sophie Dillman and Paddy O’Connor plan ‘to elope in Las Vegas’ after dating since 2019
They have been dating since 2019 after falling in love on the set of Home and Away.
And soap stars Sophie Dillman, 29, and Paddy O’Connor, 30, are considering eloping in Las Vegas.
The couple told New Idea wedding bells would ring soon, but they have different ideas about their nuptials.
Home and Away’s Sophie Dillman, 29, and Paddy O’Connor, 30, have said they are considering eloping in Las Vegas
‘I’ve recently had a few girlfriends wed and seeing them go through all the stress of planning their big days… maybe we’ll just elope in Vegas…the full Las Vegas Elvis drive-through wedding experience,’ Sophie said.
But Paddy said he was worried about the repercussions of an elopement.
‘I don’t think our families would ever forgive us,’ he said.
Sophie and Paddy have known each other since their teenage years which were spent in Queensland.
Later they rekindled their friendship on the set of Home and Away before their on-screen romance turned into a real-life romance.
Their characters Ziggy and Dean are set to become parents on the show, and the pair have hinted they may also start a family in the future.
‘I hope Dean and Ziggy have a baby girl, it would be hilarious to watch Dean try and navigate that,’ Paddy said.

‘As Dean and Ziggy have been going through that process, having discussions about baby names and dealing with morning sickness and health issues, we’ve been coming home and having talks about what we’d do in that situation,’ Sophie added.
Sophie recently revealed how her and Patrick’s first date was not as romantic as she had hoped.
Sophie had been rushed to hospital due to an endometriosis flare-up so was in excruciating pain when they went for dinner at Newtown burger joint Mary’s.
She felt so bad she was forced to sit on the footpath at one stage.
‘I said, “I have to sit down, right now.” And [Patrick] was like, “Sophie, we’re on King Street, you can’t sit down!”‘ she recalled.
‘So I was sitting in a laneway, and I rang my mum and I was like, “Mum, I’ve got to go to hospital, it’s so bad, I don’t have enough painkillers.”
‘My sister was giving me all this advice as well, and he’d never seen anything like that before, the poor guy!’
She said that despite the fact Patrick ‘went white’, he did everything he could to support her, which was a major green flag.
