Liz Hayes Married Three Times In Her Life

In her professional life, Liz Hayes has interviewed various renowned actors regarding their marriage and divorce stories. In that process, she has given relationship advice as well. 

But in her personal life, she still struggles with creating her own beautiful love story.

The Australian reporter has been married three times in her life. She first got married to Brian Hayes, a builder, in her hometown of Taree. He had brought her to Sydney and supported her career, but they separated after a few years of marriage.

And later in February 1991, she was briefly married to the advertising entrepreneur John Singleton as his fourth wife. However, their relationship didn’t even last for a year, and they got divorced that December. She still maintains a close friendship with him.

As for her third marriage, she has been married to former 60 Minutes soundman Ben Crane for nearly two decades now.

She Is Presently Married To Ben Crane

As of 2021, the TV presenter and her partner have been together for more than a decade already. However, she has not revealed much about her husband and they have not made any public appearances.

According to Crane's LinkedIn profile, he has been working as a sound recordist for a Sydney-based company named The Yellow Folder PTY LTD since 2010.

Liz Hayes Has No Children

Liz doesn’t have any children of her own, and it’s the most hurtful matter for the journalist. She hates how people assume that she doesn’t like children and she prioritizes her job only.

In an interview with The Sydney Morning Herald back in 2014, Liz shared the reasons behind not bearing any children to date. She explained that it was not her career but the bad timing that she had in her past with her ex-husbands.

It certainly wasn't based on career, it had a lot to do with bad timing. My history will show I've had too many husbands. Things don't work out and opportunities go by.

She also talked about the unkind things people say about childless women. She says the unacceptable presumption is wrong.

Unkind things are said to some women about not having children. Why do we hammer other women, our sisters, about those kinds of areas, which are deeply personal and horribly difficult for some?

How Old Is Liz Hayes? Has She Undergone Plastic Surgery?

New South Wales native was born on May 23, 1956. Since the journalist is aging, there is a lot of curiosity amongst people to know if she has ever gone under the knife. Well, the answer is no.

While speaking to The Sydney Morning Herald, she disclosed that she had never felt like visiting her nearest plastic surgeon. She also accepted the fact that she is no beauty queen and has plenty of wrinkles.

Being a woman hasn't been an issue and I've not been made to feel like I need to go to my nearest plastic surgeon. I'm 57, so it's really too late. Who cares at this point? This is me. - Liz said in 2014
