Overcome with emotion, romantic rock star Shannon Noll has proposed again to his wife of 17 years

Shannon Noll’s face lights up with a smile as he gazes at his wife Rochelle, and reveals why he’s planning to marry his soulmate for the second time after surprising her with a spectacular new engagement ring.

“I just wanted to do something really special for the woman I love,” he says.

“I love surprises and I wanted to surprise Rochelle, and I caught her totally off guard when I proposed on stage at a Christmas party in Newcastle. We’re even more in love now than we’ve ever been. It’s a beautiful thing.”

'We'd been talking about renewing our vows'

The former Australian Idol star, who has occasionally hit the headlines for the wrong reasons, has found a new peace, spending much of the last year at the small farm in NSW’s Southern Highlands he shares with Rochelle, their four children, two horses, four dogs, and 30 chooks.

These days Shannon, 45, is far more likely to be found tending his incredible veggie patch or cooking up a storm in the kitchen than partying like a rock star. “I can make a pretty good lobster mornay, and I make a lot of hearty stews, casseroles, and curries,” he says.

Even before the pandemic hit and robbed Shannon of his beloved touring, he’d had an epiphany about his life and relationship with Rochelle, 46, and their kids, Cody, 19, Blake, 18, Sienna, 14 and tearaway two-year-old Colton.
