They had been dating for several years before secretly tying the knot. At a time, Sheridan was not publicly out of the closet. 

Sheridan first dropped the marriage bombshell during an interview on The Jess Rowe Big Talk Show podcast last Wednesday.

‘I can’t say their name because they were in the same industry, so… Couldn’t really be specific about that, but I was married,’ they explained.

‘We were solidly together for about seven and then the last couple we were travelling a lot and it got too hard and… but we’re still very good friends.’

Sheridan’s family and friends knew about the marriage but kept it a secret from the press.

‘I think privacy is personal and I think most people should be entitled to it,’ the former Packed to the Rafters star explained.

The only clue about the pair’s relationship came in 2019 when Sheridan commented ‘I do’ and an engagement ring emoji on one of de la Fuente’s Instagram posts.

‘I have a huge group of Aussie friends in LA, I’ve had two Aussie boyfriends on TV, I’ve been to Australia three times,’ he told The Daily Telegraph. 

De la Fuente’s love of all things Aussie extends to enjoying the country’s favourite condiments and knowing the words to Advance Australian Fair.

‘I even know the Australian national anthem and I love Vegemite,’ the South American-born actor said.

It comes after Sheridan announced their split from ex-fiancé Kurt Roberts, 29, in November 2021 after a whirlwind romance.

Daily Mail Australia has contacted to Sheridan and de la Fuente for comment.
