Kyle Sandilands opens up during emotional wedding speech: 'Changed my life'
The shock jock got emotional as he paid tribute to his new wife, Tegan Kynaston.
He’s known as the controversial KIIS FM shock jock but on Saturday, Kyle Sandilands showed off his softer side during his wedding speech.
The 51-year-old married Tegan Kynaston in front of about 130 guests on Saturday, including Prime Minister Anthony Albanese, Guy Sebastian, NSW Premier Chris Minns and his radio co-host Jackie Henderson.
“Baby – we’ve done it,” Kyle said to his new wife, according to the Daily Telegraph.
“I always thought the love I was looking for and that I wanted was a delusion and wasn’t achievable. You’ve changed my life and made me a better man.”
“I love you, baby.”

The radio host added that seeing Tegan become a mother to their baby son, Otto, had made him “fall in love with her all over again”.
Kyle also paid tribute to Tegan's Jewish heritage during the reception, with Kyle's co-host, Jackie O, sharing a video to Instagram showing the newlyweds being lifted up in chairs as guests danced the Hora – a popular Jewish tradition.
The duo waved handkerchiefs to the tune of Hava Nagila – a Jewish folk song.
There was also a traditional breaking of the glass after the ceremony itself.
Earlier in the day, Jackie-O was seen pulling up to the event alongside her daughter Kitty in a black BMW, wearing a floral Zimmerman dress.
In a livestream, it was revealed Jackie O was ten minutes late due to bad traffic.
She told media she was “relieved” Kyle was finally getting married.
“Finally he’s settling down, he’s a happy man, it will be a happy day,” the radio host said.
In a first look, the relaxed groom posed alongside his groomsmen in fresh photos ahead of the ceremony.
The famous radio personality had been preparing for his lavish nuptials to his longtime partner Tegan Kynaston at Sydney’s Intercontinental Hotel in Double Bay.
Kyle wore navy suit pants paired with a vest and a light-blue tie.
There has been controversy surrounding the A-list guest list, which included the likes of both Prime Minister Anthony Albanese and NSW Premier Chris Minns.
Mr Albanese on Saturday quashed rumours he would be manning the DJ deck at the wedding, but confirmed he had secured an invite.
Images from the venue showed high security surrounding the front gate, where many of the celebrity guests were expected to enter.
Last year, Mr Albanese said he’d perform a DJ set should the radio king cough up an invitation.
During an appearance in Hobart on Saturday morning Mr Albanese put the rumours to bed for good.
When asked if he would be DJing, he simply responded: “No”.
“Yes, I was invited to the wedding, yes, I was invited in the context of Kyle saying how happy he was with Tegan, with this relationship, of his and with baby Otto coming along and I look forward to witnessing their expression of love between two people this afternoon,” Mr Albanese said.
In an interview between Kyle and Mr Albanese earlier this week, he revealed the Prime Minister would be charged with keeping his mother company at the wedding.
“She’s a fan of yours, so she’s going to lose her mind,” the shock jock told him live on air.
