Beau swots up becoming a true blue
THE American fiance of Veronicas singer Lisa Origliasso is certainly doing his research on his adoptive country as he prepares to wed the singer and move Down Under later this year. Logan
Huffman (below with Lisa) told Confidential he’s studying up on cricket, rugby and even reading the British Constitution because he believes “if you’re moving to a country you must know the laws out of respect”.
“I’m learning how to play cricket for the boys, and the girls,” the 28-year-old said. “Rugby I have an understanding of, it’s a lot of go, no stopping.
“I’m reading the English constitution too, I know the American constitution by heart. Citizens should know their rights. Your government doesn’t give you rights, your rights are given to you by the divinity of being human, so I just want to know what this government believes are my rights given to me by divinity.”
Huffman, Origliasso and her twin sister Jess made an appearance at the Ten Pieces fashion show from Icebergs owner Maurice Terzini and Lucy Hinckfuss, held at the landmark Bondi restaurant yesterday. The lovedup pair, who got engaged 18 months ago, are busy planning their “rainforest” wedding later this year, with Huffman’s family travelling from Indiana to Australia to attend the nuptials. “I’m really excited, it’s going to be lovely, we’ll have a good time out in the rainforest, that’s the plan,” he said. “I think we’re both just nature people at heart, we grow the majority of the food we eat in California and we love plants and I think as a little boy I always loved the jungle so it’s a perfect place.” Origliasso was a little more coy on the wedding detail, saying the pair are still “locking down the details”. “It’s getting there, that’s why it’s great we’re back together now so we can lock down some things,” she said. “It’s tough when you’re all over the place and our schedules are a little crazy.” Huffman said he has fallen in love with Australia. “It’s marvellous, I love it very much. It’s a good country full of good people. “It’s like the mid-west, hard workers, strong opinions, not flashy, just gets the job done right and that’s very similar to the part of the US that I’m from. “The real heart of where stuff gets done is the middle of the country (in the States).”
