Jason Statham and his stunning model fiancee Rosie Huntington-Whiteley enjoyed a romantic date at Auckland’s picturesque Piha beach.

The celebrity couple spent plenty of time taking in the rugged beauty of the well-known West Coast beach.

“They stayed for about an hour and a half, taking loads of selfies and having lots of cuddles and kisses, before climbing up Lion Rock,” an onlooker said of the pair.

Say cheese! The couple share a kiss for the camera.

The stars were both dressed warmly for the cold weather, with Jason sporting a grey hooded sweatshirt and jeans, and Rosie teaming a flannel shirt and puffer jacket with gold-buckled boots.

The cuddly couple stayed close to each other during their walk on the beach.

Jason and Rosie announced their engagement on January 10, with Rosie debuting her engagement ring on the red carpet at the Golden Globes.
