Grant and Sharlene surprised fans when they announced they had tied the knot in a secret, intimate ceremony in Melbourne in December 2020.

In a gushing tribute to his bride, Grant said he could no longer wait to be married – even though the pandemic ensured the wedding was smaller than the couple had hoped.

He wrote at length: ‘I feel so blessed to call you my beautiful wife @sharhackett. With a year that’s been filled with so much uncertainty it’s been such a perfect way to finish off 2020.

‘With COVID-19 continuing to delay our nuptials and the ability to properly plan our wedding, with all of our friends and family in the one location both locally and from overseas, Sharlene and I just wanted to say ‘I do’!’

The former athlete added a tribute to the couple’s son, Edward Anthony Hackett.

‘Thank you to Jagger Hackett for being the most amazing ring bearer and best man,’ Grant wrote.

Grant and Sharlene announced their engagement in October 2019.
