They’ve been married since 2010 and share four beautiful children together.
And Chris Judd has opened up about the first time he met now-wife Rebecca ‘Bec’, revealing he found her ‘pretty drunk’ and ‘incredibly attractive’ when he met her at Perth’s Cottesloe Hotel in 2002.
Speaking to the The Howie Games podcast this week, the former AFL player said nothing ‘full-on’ happened during that first meeting because he was in a relationship with someone else.

Chris was at the popular Perth watering hole when he spotted his future wife, model Bec Twigley, across the room.
‘I saw someone who was incredibly attractive and pretty drunk, and that was my sweet spot!’ He recalled to the podcast.
The former Carlton captain said nothing ‘full-on’ happened between the pair that meeting, because he was still in a relationship with another woman.

But after Chris realised he had strong feelings for Bec, he dumped his girlfriend and the two began a relationship.
In 2004, Bec and Chris made their public debut as a couple, attending the Brownlow Medal ceremony.
While Chris won the coveted award that night Bec stole the show in a very revealing red dress by Ruth Tarvydas.
‘I just remember being confused as to why she hadn’t bought a whole dress. We’d had a good year, we can afford a whole one, I don’t know why she’s bought half of one,’ Chris joked.

‘She looked great … my main thought was, ”This is great I’m taking such a cracker to the Brownlow. ” That was as about as in-depth as I got with it.’
Chris later proposed to Bec during a 2009 holiday to Noosa, marrying a year later in a lavish socialite wedding.
He later recalled the first years of their relationship in his 2015 autobiography, revealing Bec’s famous Brownlow appearance signalled the end of their privacy as a couple.
