Shane Smith, the father of Married at First Sight Australia‘s Stacey Hampton‘s two children, has tragically died in a motorcycle accident.
According to reports, emergency services were called to Redwood Park in Adelaide just after three am on Wednesday after it was revealed a motorcyclist and his male passenger had crashed.
While the other person was taken to hospital, 38-year-old Shane died at the scene.
Stacey and Shane, who share two sons, Kosta, six, and Kruz, four, met when they were just 19.
“He’s honestly the greatest person, and I think he’s ashamed of his past,” she told Who magazine back in 2020.
“I met him when I was really young, 19, through mutual friends, and I wasn’t aware of his lifestyle, but I fell for him so quickly.”
The former MAFS alum dated the Rebels’ Adelaide president until 2017. A month later, he was convicted of bashing two nightclub bouncers.
During an interview with the Daily Mail, Stacey revealed that their breakup was “civil”.
“He’s an amazing dad, and I have no regrets.”
The news follows the death of Stacey’s brother, who also died in a motorcycle accident when she was just 21.
