Anna Heinrich and Tim Robards are one of The Bachelor’s rare success stories.
And Anna, 35, has now revealed a surprising detail about her love life before she met Tim Robards on the Channel 10 dating show nine years ago.
Speaking to the Sydney Morning Herald this week, Anna confessed: ‘I didn’t have a boyfriend until I met Tim.

“I didn’t want them to see who I was. I was afraid they would tell me I wasn’t good enough,’ the mother-of-one continued.
Anna said she felt insecure and was “scared” to show them who she “really was”.
The blonde beauty confessed that she struggled with self-confidence for a long time, and going on The Bachelor in 2013 forced her to get to know someone.

“I couldn’t run away and it allowed me to be much more open in relationships,” she added.
It comes just weeks after Tim, 39, told Daily Mail Australia that the couple hope to sell their Rose Bay flat to buy a bigger house in Sydney to accommodate their growing family.
“We’re in no rush to sell, but we’re looking at whether the market wants it for what we want to sell,” he said. “We like the area, so it’s going to be difficult to move.
Sale: This comes just weeks after Tim, 39, told Daily Mail Australia that the couple wanted to sell their flat in Rose Bay to buy a bigger house in Sydney to accommodate their growing family.
“But at some point we would like to have a second child. There’s nothing on the path right now, but on the trail it would be nice to have something a little bigger.
He then praised the port suburb, saying it would be a compromise on location if they were to move elsewhere in the city.
“At the moment we have lovely views and the location – we have cafes across the road and a short walk from the water which has been amazing during lockdown,” said Tim.
Luxurious: the marble kitchen has luxurious appliances including a Smeg gas hob and integrated fridge/freezer
“There’s going to be a trade-off that if we want more space, we’re going to lose the view and the location.
“But at the same time, we are still so lucky to have been able to spend this time here.”
The couple are already the proud parents of a beautiful one-year-old daughter, Elle.
Location: The charming apartment is located on a block of six, a stone’s throw from the Rose Bay wharf and restaurants
When asked how many children they wanted in the future, Tim replied, “I think one for each of us. Two children will probably suffice.
“I’m one of three, and Anna one of three, but I feel like right now there are enough people in the world, we don’t want to bring in too many.
“And with the price of housing in Sydney right now, if you need a four-bedroom house … every child you bring in would cost a few million dollars extra to support them, with a room and to support them the school.’
The couple’s Rose Bay property has already been extensively renovated before its purchase in 2018.
Spacious: The property also has wooden floors in the living areas and high quality carpeting in the three bedrooms
Tim and Anna, who met on The Bachelor in 2013 and married in 2018, bought the townhouse in 2016 for $630,000, realestate.com.au reported.
The pad, located in the luxurious Portavilla complex, was completely new at the time and was only recently built.
Tim also recently put his other investment property up for sale: a four-bedroom townhouse in Aspley, North Brisbane.
The chiropractor bought this townhouse in 2016 for $452,500.
