Sam Burgess and his new girlfriend Lucy Graham look unrecognizable in a throwback photo from 18 years ago when they were expecting their first child together
They have known each other for more than 20 years.
But NRL star Sam Burgess and his new girlfriend Lucy Graham only started dating last year after he split from his ex-wife Phoebe Burgess.
The happy couple, who are expecting their first child together, have enjoyed a long friendship and Lucy shared an adorable photo of them together as teenagers.
The fashion designer posted on Instagram a grainy photo of her and 34-year-old Sam, which was taken 18 years ago.
They look unrecognizable in the early 1990s as they both pose and smile for the camera.
Sam Burgess’s pregnant girlfriend, Lucy Graham, shared an adorable throwback photo of them together as teens on Saturday
In the photo, they are both casually dressed in graphic T-shirts while Lucy holds a bottle in her hand.
She shared it alongside a photo of them now.
The glamorous shot is worlds away from their teenage photo, as they’re both dressed to the nines at a glitzy event.

In it, Sam wears a suit while Lucy looks gorgeous in a plunging black dress with a glamorous makeup look.
Friends and fans of the couple flocked to the comments section to share their disbelief that the throwback photo was taken nearly 20 years ago.
One person wrote: ‘Awww this is amazing… you both have aged well’.
While a friend of theirs said ‘Wow remember these days feel so old xx’.
And another commented, “You’ll always look much younger.”
Three weeks ago, the retired NRL player confirmed that he and Lucy are expecting their first baby together.
In a statement to Daily Mail Australia, he said: “We are so excited and happy to be starting this new chapter together…Have a nice day.”
Last Saturday, Lucy looked radiant as she showed off a hint of a baby bump in a long black dress at the glamorous Longines Queen Elizabeth Stake Day at Royal Randwick.

Burgess is already a loving father to his two children Poppy, four, and son Billy, three, whom he shared with his ex-wife Phoebe.

Lucy, who is from the UK, recently made the decision to move Down Under permanently and it is believed her pregnancy was the reason.
Born in West Yorkshire, England, Sam was friends with Lucy when they were teenagers.
Lucy is the co-founder of sustainable fashion label Sentenced, which launched in September 2019.
Sam found love with Lucy after a series of flings that followed his acrimonious breakup with Phoebe in January 2019.
