MEET DELTA’S SE­CRET FAM­ILY

The singer’s dad spills the beans on her un­der­cover per­sonal life

Woman’s Day (Australia) - - Celebrity News -

Fam­ily means ev­ery­thing to Aussie sweet­heart Delta Goodrem, who prides her­self on her close-knit re­la­tion­ship with her loved ones, es­pe­cially her Syd­ney-based mum Lea.

But Wo­man’s Day can re­veal the stun­ning singer has a “se­cret” fam­ily and has been mak­ing reg­u­lar trips to Mel­bourne to visit the fam­ily her fans may know lit­tle about.

As our ex­clu­sive pic­ture shows, Delta’s beloved dad De­nis – who split from Lea in the years af­ter their daugh­ter’s cruel can­cer bat­tle in the mid-2000s – has found love again with mar­riage cel­e­brant Louise Mitchell.

Louise is close with Delta, 33, but lit­tle was known about their re­la­tion­ship un­til now.

De­nis tells Wo­man’s Day he and Louise see Delta reg­u­larly, and that she even paid them a visit last week. “I don’t talk to the pa­pers though,” he ad­mit­ted, speak­ing to us while the cou­ple took their pup for a walk through the Mel­bourne sub­urb of Bal­wyn.

De­nis and Louise mar­ried in Syd­ney in 2008, with Delta and her brother Trent – an Ade­laide­based footy player – by their side.

Un­til 2014, busi­ness­man De­nis proudly tweeted about his “child of the uni­verse” daugh­ter, but tells us: “I don’t tweet any more. If any­one tweets me now I just ig­nore it and move on”.

Sources say while Delta con­sid­ers her mum her best friend, she’s grown ex­tremely close to Louise over the years.

“Delta can see that her dad is head over heels in love with Louise and noth­ing makes her happier than to see her old man do­ing so well,” says an in­sider.

“She was sad when he chose to leave Syd­ney and live in Mel­bourne, be­cause at the time Louise’s kids were still in school there. Delta sched­ules trips to see them when­ever she can.”

The songstress sees her dad and step­mum as of­ten as she can.

Ddenisi now lives in Mel­bourne with his wife of 10 years, Louise.
