Ever since Lara Bingle changed her surname to Worthington on social media, speculation has been rife that the Australian model had tied the knot with actor Sam Worthington.
And now the 28-year-old has confirmed she is married to 39-year-old Sam – her partner of three years and the father of her six-month-old son Rocket.
Speaking to Daily Mail Australia about her involvement with Westfield’s Today, I Am Campaign, Lara made a special mention to the men in her life saying she is very happy now ‘I’m a mother and a wife’.

‘This campaign really resonated with me with the empowering part of it,’ she explained.
‘That line (Today, I Am) is like who you are today and I think it’s really important to relish in that.
‘I’ve always been a happy girl but I guess I’m a mother and a wife and I have a beautiful little sanctuary I would call it,’ she added.
While she didn’t specify the date of her and Avatar star Sam’s nuptials, the modelling sensation said married life was a completely different, yet very positive experience compared to her single days.

‘It’s private and it’s awesome,’ she gushed to Daily Mail Australia.
After having started dating in September 2013, speculation that the couple married began in December when Lara changed her name to ‘Lara Bingle Worthington’ on Instagram.
The marriage rumours continued after a source, who is allegedly close to model Lara, confirmed to Who magazine in January that the couple wed in late December.
In March the excitement continued for the pair as they welcomed their first son together, named Rocket Zot.
Sharing a photo of her little boy’s feet on Instagram, Lara revealed the birth date of Rocket, writing: ‘March 24th 2015 best day of our lives…’
‘It’s definitely something new,’ Lara reflected on motherhood when speaking to DMA.

‘It’s the best thing in the world. It’s very challenging, and I’m learning something new every day which is awesome.’
Giving a nod to other mothers who are juggling full time jobs with looking after their children, Lara said: ‘I’m very new to this. I have a lot of respect for women who also have full careers and have three or four children and can balance it. I strive to find the balance and I’m just learning.’
Speaking of balancing career with motherhood, Lara is back in Australia from the US, enjoying attending to her professional commitments as a Westfield Style Ambassador while husband Sam looks after Rocket.
She also has her own business venture called The Base, which flaunts a collection of bronzing and tanning beauty products.
Opening up about her own personal style choices, Lara says she is in control of her looks the majority of the time.

‘I dress myself,’ she explained, before adding she feels ‘very lucky and fortunate to be able to borrow things’ from people for certain occasions.
‘But generally I’m a very uniformed dresser,’ she continued. ‘I wear the same thing to a plane that I would to a business meeting. So that’s how I mainstream my wardrobe and it’s just become easier that way to travel and to get dressed in the morning.’
The Today I Am film which was recently released by Westfield captures Lara’s style and features the latest SS15 trends from international and Australian designers including Zimmerman, Dion Lee and Swarovski.
Lara will make her only public appearances as Westfield Style Ambassador at The Base pop-up at Westfield Bondi Junction on Thursday 15 October and Westfield Doncaster on Saturday 17 October.
