Delta Goodrem has been in the spotlight since she was young, thanks to her incredible singing voice, impressive songwriting skills and various forays into acting (most notably, Delta played Nina Tucker on Neighbours).
But despite living most of her life in the public eye, Delta has wisely kept her love life rather private… Case in point: Delta’s been in a relationship with her current partner, Matthew Copley, for six years and yet, has never spoken about him in great detail or made a red carpet debut with him.
In fact, when The Weekly last sat down with Delta, she – understandably – didn’t want to talk too much about Matthew and, when asked about him, very politely explained:
“He’s my guitarist, I met him through music. It’s incredible to be on stage with him because he’s so talented. We really are a team. He’s my best friend, he’s kind and just a beautiful human being. But I learnt quite young that I enjoy keeping part of that private.
“I’ve always been so understanding that I’ve lived in the public eye since I was a teenager but also I think it’s nice to keep some things to yourself.”
Of course, Delta has made her engagement with Matthew on September 21, 2023, Insta-official in a holiday post from Malta, and over the years, she has offered her fans small glimpses into their relationship. Here are some of couple’s sweetest moments together.
Delta and Matthew began dating in 2017 but waited until 2018 to go public with their relationship; they both shared this snap on Instagram on New Year’s Eve in 2018.
You can see Delta looking lovingly at Matthew in this photo he shared to his socials on July 26, 2019.
During the 2020 and 2021 COVID lockdowns, Delta and Matthew would regularly live stream themselves performing mini-concerts from Delta’s apartment. They called them the ‘Bunkerdown Sessions’.
During the Bunkerdown Sessions, Matthew would play guitar and Delta would sing (and sometimes play piano), and the couple performed a mix of Delta’s own songs and covers.
In honour of the last show of the Bridge Over Troubled Dreams Australian tour, Matthew posted several photos of him and Delta, and wrote, “I love you”.
Delta and Matthew went to Uluru in May 2023. Matt posted this picture on Instagram along with the caption, “So incredible getting to witness this sacred land!”
On July 19, 2023, Matthew posted this stunning picture of himself and Delta, and wrote, “Getting to play music anywhere is special for me, playing music anywhere with my love is even better, playing music with my love with my family in Malta was so incredible!
“But yesterday’s performance was important for more reasons [than] 1. With an incredible team around us that we could not do any of this without, Delta and I started ATLED records and premiered the first song live on stage! What a day ..!!!!”
During the European leg of Delta’s Bridge Over Troubled Dreams tour in July 2023, Matthew posted several sweet pictures of him and Delta enjoying their down time. This is them in London.
This is the happy couple in Rome.
For Matthew’s birthday, on September 9, 2023, Delta posted a loving tribute on Instagram.
“Another year around the sun!! On tour, on your birthday! Happy birthday to my best friend and favourite human in the whole wide world. My [world] @matthew.copley,” Delta wrote.
On September 21, 2023, Delta and Matthew got engaged! The singer shared the exciting news on her Instagram and wrote, “My best friend asked me to marry him,” alongside this stunning image of the couple’s intimate moment.
