This article was last updated by on

James Magnussen girlfriend, Rose McEvoy, was recently promoted to an associate position at Brown Wright Stein Lawyers. Rose began dating the Olympian medalist in 2014. 

The former Australian swimmer James Magnussen made headlines in 2015 after going public with his romance with then-21-year-old model/law student Rose McEvoy.

The couple has come far and is still going strong nine years into their relationship.

Rose is now an associate, and James, after having retired as a swimmer, has done some work in television. His latest endeavor has seen him participate in the show Dancing With The Stars. 

Earlier this year, James announced he was entering the competition with Australian ballroom dancer Natalie Lowe, and last night the pair being ever so close to the grand finale were knocked out of the competition. 

But this might not be the last we see of James, and hopefully has many other projects coming in the next few months.

The two have attended several events together in the recent year, and where James goes, Rose is a plus one. But along with being his partner at major celebrity events, James has also attended Rose’s corporate party events with Brown Wright. 

The lovely pairing of the two is also a parent to a furry baby. The couple adopted a Dachshund named Olli, who has been seen in several photographs in the last few years.
