From his previous relationship with his ex-girlfriend Lauren Shippey, Jack has a daughter Nyla born in 2009 and a son Reuben born in 2013. He has previously spoken of growing his family.

Jack said in 2020 that he was considering having children with Hanni, his current girlfriend, but they were holding off on getting married first.

At the time, he said to OK!, “We will get married but we’re not engaged yet.”

We’re not quite there yet, but we want to achieve all those major life goals like getting married, starting a family, and owning a home.

We did talk about marriage and kids early on because you need to know you want the same things, but I didn’t want to frighten Hanni away.

Hanni continued, saying, “I needed to make sure Jack was okay with having more kids, so it was a talk I needed to have too.

“When kids are involved you need to have those serious conversations quite quickly, but we knew early on we wanted to have children together and we were serious about each other.”

Today, Jack and Hanni told their followers the good news.

The caption accompanying the couple’s photos of themselves kissing on the safari read, “05.06.24 I said YES to forever!”

Earlier this month, the pair travelled to Tanzania during their two weeks in Africa, and then they took a plane to Zanzibar for a luxurious beach vacation.

Jack made the proposal on their Serengeti safari.

They first got acquainted six years ago when Hanni was working in the press office on the soap opera.

Before leaving to become a fashion influencer, she subsequently worked as a storyliner.

After debuting in the soap opera as a kid star in 2000, actor Jack has been playing hairstylist David for 24 years.

David has been a part of several spectacular plots over the years.

When his mother Gail wed serial murderer Richard Hillman, the character came dangerously close to death.

In a famous incident from 2003, Hillman drove David, Gail, Sarah, David’s sister, and her daughter Bethany into the nearby canal in an attempt to kill himself.

In 2018, David found himself at the focus of a terrifying narrative in which his buddy Josh Tucker sexually attacked him.

He was the recipient of the Inside Soap Award for Best Young Actor in 2001 as well as Best Bad Boy in 2007 at the same event.

In addition, he won Best Soap Actor at the TV Choice Awards in 2020 and was voted Villain of the Year at the British Soap Awards in 2008.
