The pair started dating around March 2015.

New husband and new upcoming album

In an interview with ASOS earlier this year, Sparro described Lennox as joyful, intuitive and adorable. Lennox said Sparro is sexy, intelligent and a goofball.

When Sparro found out Australia voted in favor of same-sex marriage at the end of last year, he was thrilled.

He said: ‘I loved seeing how overcome with emotion everyone was at all the gatherings. It’s nice to be respected and valued and see things move in a positive direction towards equality.’

Sparro is currently working on his third album.

‘It’s like a love letter to my childhood,’ he told ‘It’s made for people to dance to.

‘This album is about being in love, about people coming together. Despite all the horrible things that are happening right now there are so many things to celebrate and life is amazing, so I’m writing about love and unity as an act of resistance,’ he said.

Sparro has previously collaborated with Kylie Minogue for the track If I Can’t Have You in 2015.

He also wrote the AAA Girls song, AAA.
