In a Facebook post in 2017, during the same-sex marriage campaign, Kwong said she proposed to Nell, an artist, in 2015 as a present for her 40th birthday and Nell had said yes.
“My amazing and beautiful life partner Nell and I started hanging out in September 2006, two months after I lost my dear father to prostate cancer,” Kwong wrote.
“11 years later I can honestly say, having #nellartist in my day-to-day has been the happiest and most fulfilling time of my entire existence.
“No one understands my crazy character or ‘gets me’, more than this person… I am so proud and feel so blessed to be with her every single day.
“I asked Nell to marry me in late January 2015 and LUCKY for me, she said YES, YES, YES!!!”
Kwong told the Daily Telegraph last year that after the postal survey’s “yes” vote they were both looking forward to tying the knot.
“Every day since the yes vote, Nell’s been saying to me, when are we going to get married?” she said.
“And me being me, I say yeah I know, I’ve got to work out when I can have time off work, what are we going to have to eat — it’s all got to be right.”
