“The Bachelorette Australia” star Georgia Love should be celebrating finding love with her final rose pick Lee Elliot, but she is in the midst of mourning the loss of her mother this week instead. As fans know, Georgia's mother was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer just before filming of this last season began, and the star took to her social media pages to share about her mother's passing.

Georgia is leaning on Lee during this difficult time

Georgia Love and Lee Elliot are together and doing quite well, and the “Bachelorette Australia” star praised him and his support via Instagram this week. Luckily, Lee has been right by Georgia's side throughout this difficult time for her family, even though they had to keep their relationship under wraps until the finale aired last week.

Now, Lee can focus solely on Georgia, and not on hiding, as he helps her through the loss of her mother. Earlier this week, Love posted a montage of photos on Instagram showing her with her mother and talking about how her heart was broken. She notes that seven months ago her mother wasn't even sick, and seven weeks ago they were able to take a trip together to Italy. As of the “Bachelorette Australia” finale, Love's mother was getting palliative care and it was known that she wouldn't have much more time. 

What's next for the 'Bachelorette Australia' stars?

As for her relationship with Elliot, the “Bachelorette Australia” star shared via Instagram that she has found the love of her life. She notes that she feels lucky to have such an amazing man by her side during such a difficult time, and she adds that he's been able to make her laugh despite all of the heartbreak.

For his part, Lee posted a photo on Instagram after the finale showing Georgia with her mother and he talked about how the day was a mix of emotions.

Luckily, Lee got to spend time with Georgia's mother before she passed, and the “Bachelorette Australia” star previously mentioned that her mother had been quite thrilled with her final rose pick.

Georgia and Lee aren't making any major decisions regarding the future of their relationship at this point, and obviously, their focus is on the Love family and their loss at the moment. However, the “Bachelorette Australia” lovebirds do seem to be doing well as a couple and the show's fans will be anxious to see what comes next for them when their lives settle back into a more normal routine.
