NRL Star Johnathan Thurston Marries Longtime Love

He’s one of the best NRL players of our time, and made history this year by being awarded his fourth Dally M medal this year – but nothing could top of a great year more than marrying his longtime love, so he did!

Johnathan and Samantha, who share two daughters in two-year-old Frankie and seven-month-old Charlie, eloped to Hamilton Island where they wed in secret on November 3.


The new Mrs Thurston announced the happy news on social media, sharing a gorgeous photo from their special day alongside the tag, ‘just married’.

Samantha, who was engaged to the star for three years, adds in the caption alongside the post: ‘We’d been hoping to keep this quiet until all of our nearest & dearest received official notifications in the mail however the news is out there now so here it is.’

Samantha and Johnathan began dating in 2008 before getting engaged back in 2012 while holidaying in New York.

They welcomed their first child Frankie, conceived via IVF, in June the following year and announced they were pregnant with Charlie the day after the 2014 Dally M awards.
