Hazel secretly got married

As being a secretive person, the Royal Television Society’s Sports Presenter of the Year is able to keep a tight guard on her personal life and recently, we got the news that she privately married her longtime boyfriend in 2008 in Scotland.

Where she said:

“It was a small and very private affair, and she and her husband are very happy. She wants to keep all the details private.”

Similarly, one of the BBC insiders revealed:

 “Hazel is really friendly and gets on great with everyone but she keeps her personal life to herself.”

Moreover, other insiders said:

“She only talks to close friends about that sort of thing so even people who work with her didn’t know about the wedding until after it happened. She seems really happy and all her colleagues are delighted for her.”

Hazel feels that this was the right time for her to get married. Before even if she was committed, she did not feel right to exchange vows and get hitched spiritually as well as legally.


“Hazel is dedicated to work which can make relationships difficult, but she has been with her partner for quite a while and they just decided it was the right time to get hitched.”

Similarly, the first female sports presenters of Scotland are on the verge of giving birth to a child in the spring of 2009. And said:

“My husband and I have a new arrival coming in the spring – which is going to be a drain on my own profits.”

In one of the interviews on July 13, 2014, she revealed much about her personal life and said:

“look at my daughter Gina.”
