Reality star Matty ‘J’ Johnson has revealed the one wardrobe item he has had for eight years that he just can’t part with: a pair of Calvin Klein undies. Meanwhile, fiancée Laura Byrne, 37, has begged him to chuck them out. The loved-up couple, who met on The Bachelor in 2017, came out with this and other fashion secrets when the pair shared an interview with The Daily Telegraph on Saturday.

Matty, 34, revealed another shock style choice in the chat, when he admitted that he has never owned that Australian summer essential a pair of thongs. ‘I’m not sure if it’s surprising,’ he said. The reality star, who recently shared news of a gig on iconic ABC kids’ show Playschool, described his style as ‘cool dad’. The handsome celebrity, who shares two daughters with Laura, picked movie stars Steve McQueen and Jonah Hill as style icons.

‘Steve McQueen made everything he wore cool,’ he said. ‘I’m also a big fan of Jonah Hill: his wardrobe is this adventurous mix of streetwear and designer clothing.’ Jewellery designer Laura made an out-there choice for her style icon, selecting American blogger and author Leandra Cohen, best known for her Men Repeller website.

‘I’m also a big fan of Lara Worthington,’ she said of the former model, now entrepreneur, best known for the famous ‘So where the bloody hell are you?’ Australian Tourism ad. Laura said that Worthington, who was known as Lara Bingle at the peak of her modelling career in the early 2000s, carries off an effortlessly cool vibe.

Matty and Laura recently moved out of their home in Sydney’s Bondi after purchasing a $1.87million property in Bangalow, which is located in the hinterland of Byron Bay. The pair met on The Bachelor back in 2017, the fifth season, and became engaged in 2019.  

Two years later they started their family when they welcomed their first child, daughter Marlie Mae. Laura gave birth to their second daughter, Lola Ellis, in February 2021.
