Last week, The Masked Singer Australia 2022’s Hugh Sheridan revealed that they were secretly married for NINE years, and while fans were shocked AF, they wouldn’t give away the name of their ex beau.

ICYMI – The 33-year-old nonbinary actor dropped the shocking bombshell on The Jess Rowe Big Talk Show that they quietly wed someone “in the same industry”.

According to an insider at Daily Mail Australia, the Packed to the Rafters star was married to Venezuelan actor Rafael de la Fuente, best known for playing Sam Jones in the remake of Dynasty.

Hugh Sheridan Opens Up About Their Past Relationship with Rafael de la Fuente

The couple reportedly got married overseas in July 2011, with Hugh explaining that they had a “solid” seven years with Rafael.

However, things got “tricky”, and they started to “struggle” the final two years due to their constant travelling.

When asked how they managed to keep their long-term relationship secret, Hugh explained: “I just lived my life privately.”

Hugh confirmed that they’re still “really good friends” with their former hubby.

The only time we’ve seen social media interaction between the former couple was back in 2019 when Hugh commented on Rafael’s Instagram post, writing “I do” with an engagement ring emoji.

The secret couple divorced “a few years ago”, which by our (admittedly rough) calculations, would have been sometime in 2020.

Later the same year, Hugh started publicly dating Kurt Roberts. They proposed to their boyfriend in March 2021 (Hugh’s third engagement) but announced the breakup eight months later.

“There’s plenty more engagements to come,” Hugh joked with host Jess Rowe.

And for anybody keen to take a crack at the Ross Geller of Australian actors, Hugh confirmed they are “definitely single” RN.

BRB, we’re finding their number ASAP! For research purposes, of course! *Shifty eyes*.
