The couple got married in a lavish wedding at St Peters Church, Toorak Road (an inner suburb of Melbourne, Victoria), on February 8, 1997. Eddie was working as the host of a show,

The Footy Show during that time and most of the Channel Nine's reporters including, Tara Brown, Larry Emdur, Steven Jacobs, Kellie Sloane and much more attended the ceremony.

Ever since the couple is together, going stronger year after year, without any divorce or affair rumors.

His love for his wife is inexplicable as he once even fought with a reporter named Steve Price for reporting false rumors about his wife getting pregnant.

Steve Price in an interview with Heraldsun, recalled the memory quoting,

"Eddie bowled up and started abusing me for a rumor that had gone to air on 3AW’s Rumour File which suggested his wife (Carla) was pregnant. 

She had just launched a new fashion business and both he and she thought this would ruin her business by putting this false rumor to air. He was about to punch me but he’d had a fair bit to drink and then stumbled off. I actually said, ‘Go ahead, make my day!"

We salute this perfect couple and wish for their forever happiness and togetherness.

The couple is blessed with two children

The happy duo, Carla, and Eddie are blessed with two children, sons- Joseph born in 2001 and younger one, Alexander born on 2003.

The 14-year-old actor made his screen debut back in 2016 with Australian soap opera, Neighbours, portraying the role of character Charlie Hoyland.
