“She’s the most amazing person I’ve ever met,” Craig gushes of his feisty sweetheart.

“Yes, she’s a strong woman, but she’s just so positive, caring and genuine. I’ve never felt this kind of connection with anyone before.”

Behind the scenes with Naz and her new boyfriend!

And unlike The Bachelor New Zealand’s indecisive Jordan Mauger, who chose Fleur Verhoeven over Naz only to dump her soon after, her new boyfriend Craig Sutherland can’t contain his affection.

“She’s the most amazing person I’ve ever met,” he gushes.

The pair first crossed paths three months ago at a dinner with mutual pals in Auckland, where they admired each other, but were too shy to make a move!

Naz giggles, “I remember thinking, ‘What a hottie!’ when I saw him. But we didn’t really flirt or anything – we just went our separate ways at the end of the night.”

Unbeknown to Naz, who returned to her hometown of Christchurch to focus on her ill-fated boxing training, Auckland-based digital developer Craig – who also moonlights as a stripper – couldn’t get the Iranian beauty out of his mind.

The muscle-bound 31-year-old wanted to contact her but just didn’t have the courage. “It ended up with my big sister Penny telling me to man up and send her a message! So I did it and from then on, we’ve been in constant contact,” he says.

The lovebirds, who are splitting their time between Naz’s native Christchurch and Craig’s home in the City of Sails, acknowledge it’s all been a bit of a whirl, but they’re confident this is the real deal.

“It’s all a bit crazy,” Naz tells. “It really feels like we’ve known each other for a couple of years already. We are flying back and forth almost every weekend – we’re basically obsessed with each other.”

While Naz admits she “did have strong feelings for Jordan initially,” after spending a weekend together with him, his brother and his wife, she realised, “Nope, he’s not for me. We just have different values about things like how to show respect to your family.”

There are no such reservations about Craig, who is utterly besotted with his girlfriend. “He’s so sweet,” Naz sighs as she strokes her man’s face. “I’m feeling so lucky right now. He really is my Mr Nice Guy.”
