Delta's relationship history

Delta was previously engaged to Irish pop singer Brian McFadden from 2007 to 2011 and has also dated Nick Jonas and tennis star Mark Philippousiss.

She and Matthew began dating in late 2017, although they have remained rather private about their relationship and never appear on a red carpet together.


The Born to Try hitmaker spoke openly about their romance for the first time in February this year, telling Australian Women's Weekly that they had met 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 a beautiful human being,” she shared.

“I'm very lucky. It's all very natural and I think that comes from a beautiful respect and love. I feel so grateful.”

The couple recently launched their own independent record label called ATLED Records and have co-written a number of tracks together, including Delta’s latest single ‘Back to Your Heart’.
