The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - - Sydney Confidential -

RIS­ING star Jett Kenny says he’s happy to live in the shadow of his fa­mous par­ents.

“My par­ents are known ev­ery­where, but not me,” Kenny, the life­saver son of triathlon su­per­stars

Grant Kenny and Lisa Curry, told Con­fi­den­tial. “Mum said she was at the shops and some­one asked if she was Jett Kenny’s mother.

“That’s kind of funny, be­cause I al­ways feel like I’m just their son.

“They’ll al­ways be the fa­mous ones be­cause they’ve done such amaz­ing things, and I’ll just be me.”

Kenny has shot to promi­nence this year af­ter star­ring in Chan­nel 7’s The Real Full Monty and com­pet­ing on Nine’s Aus­tralian Ninja War­rior.

Last month, David Jones also signed him up to walk the run­way along­side Jessica Gomes and Karolina Kurkova.

“Fash­ion is not my world,” Kenny ad­mit­ted with a smile.

“I had to Google a few peo­ple.”
