As he battles brain cancer for the second time, Johnny Ruffo has been vocal about the important role his partner Tahnee Sims has had in his life.
Fans noted a clever addition in a tribute she just uploaded on her Instagram account, indicating that the 28-year-old influencer has a sense of humour.
Fans were sent into a frenzy with one particular snapshot of the former Home and Away actor, which was uploaded as part of a collage of Polaroid-style photos.
Johnny could be seen wearing nothing but his birthday suit as he posed for a photo in the shower in one of the ten photos.
The shocking shot drew a lot of attention and received a lot of feedback.
‘Rudie nudie,’ one fan said, while another added, ‘Cheeeeeky.’
Another fan couldn’t stop giggling and sent a succession of laughing emojis along with a peach emoji.
Johnny previously told Now To Love that he doesn’t think he would still be here if it weren’t for his girlfriend’s unwavering support.
‘I might not be here if it weren’t for her,’ he admitted.
‘She was the one who forced me to get in the car [to go to the hospital] when the headaches started.
‘She’s also motivating me to try new things.’ He continued, ‘She keeps me active by encouraging me to go for runs and swims.’
In 2015, Johnny and Tahnee met in a dance studio and have been together ever since.
On November 24, Johnny stated that he was once again battling brain cancer.
‘It is with a sad heart that I have to let you know that after an unexpected week of seizures and painful headaches, I now have another enormous struggle ahead of me as my brain cancer has returned,’ he posted on Instagram.
Johnny was diagnosed with the condition for the first time in 2017 after visiting the hospital with severe migraines.
He had a 7cm brain tumor surgically removed in August of that year, followed by chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
