Model Lara Bingle has opened up about her romance with rugby star Danny Cipriani, confirming the relationship "just feels right" in a candid interview with WHO.

Following her successful stint on Dancing with the Stars, Bingle, 24, and Melbourne Rebels player Cipriani, 23, are enjoying a tropical getaway together on the French Polynesian island of Bora Bora. "It's been so nice to be able to just hang out and get away from everything," the Sydney based star says from her island bungalow. "With Danny it's just so easy—he gets me and my life and I get his. He's really supportive of what I do."

The revealing interview marks the first time Bingle has spoken publicly about a relationship since the public disintegration of her engagement to Australian cricket captain Michael Clarke in March 2010. "After my relationship with Michael I've realised that sometimes it's better to speak out rather than trying to hide it," she says. "But I feel like I want to protect this interview more."

Images of Bingle and Cipriani kissing passionately during their summer escape have ruled out rumours suggesting she was set to reconcile with former flame, US singer Jason Derulo, who coincidentally arrives into Sydney today for a promotional gig over the weekend. "He's one of the nicest guys I've met, but he lives in the US and I live in Australia so it was a hard thing to continue," she concedes. "But we're still friends, we still hang out if we're in the same place."
