Jessica Mauboy has revealed she met her husband Themeli Magripilis through a game of ‘truth or dare’ at a nightclub.
Speaking to The Sunday Project, the songstress, 34, recalled the awkward encounter.
‘I was out with my eight girlfriends and we happened to play this game truth or date and I happened to say ‘dare’,’ she explained.
Jessica didn’t disclose exactly what the dare was, but said she spotted Themeli soon afterwards.
‘I kind of spotted him in the room and I said ”I’m going for that one”… [I’m] heading his way. I was coming for him,’ she said.
Jessica said she remembered ‘Let’s Get Married’ by Jagged Edge was playing during their meeting.
She went on to confess the couple used the song for their opening dance at their wedding last year.
The songstress was on the show to speak about her new album ‘Yours Truly’, which is set to be released in February in conjunction with her upcoming tour.
Jessica and Themeli tied-the-knot in July last year, and she admitted to the Sunday Times last August that it ‘took a long time.’
‘We used to talk about it and we talked about how strong our families are and they get along really well,’ she said.
According to the NT News, Jessica exchanged vows at a small church ceremony in Darwin, followed by a reception for more than 300 guests at the Mindil Beach Casino Resort.
Sources close to the couple reportedly told the publication there wasn’t ‘a dry eye in the crowd’.
Jessica and Themeli’s evening reception reportedly took place on the lawn of the resort, which overlooks Mindil Beach.
The Voice judge was forced to postpone her wedding due to the Covid lockdowns.
The couple, who have been dating since they were 18, got engaged in 2019 while on holiday in Greece.
