While the personal life of his co-star Pete Evans is so often fodder for public consumption, My Kitchen Rules co-host Manu Fieldel occasionally escapes the scrutiny of our glare thanks to his Paleo-eating, opinion-bearing friend.
But as My Kitchen Rules consumes our screens in a period of reality TV saturation (here’s looking at you, I’m a Celebrity and Married at First Sight), our nosy, curious minds want to know it all. We know the deal with Pete Evans – we know who his wife is and his children and his general schtick – but what about Fieldel. Is he married? Does he have kids?
The answer to both of those questions is oui.
Fieldel has two kids, in fact.
The eldest is a 13-year-old son called Jonti, whom he had with ex-partner Veronica Morshead, whom he split with in 2009 after 12 years together.
In 2011, he met now-wife Clarissa Weerasena, a jewellery designer, at a nightclub in Sydney.
