But when asked if he approved of the relationship, Buckey said emphatically; “Of course, absolutely.”

“But I’d rather leave it at that, thanks anyway.”

It comes nearly three weeks after Rorie and Robert were spotted cuddling on a date at the beach in Queensland.

The young couple looked smitten as they enjoyed burgers and fries from a local Grill’d restaurant and looked out over the ocean.

More recently, the pair were photographed dining at Brisbane’s trendy Hellenika.

The new relationship marks the coming together of two of Australia’s most famous families, both of whom have faced great tragedy.

Heath was at the peak of his Hollywood career when he was found dead in January 2008 of an accidental drug overdose.
