Liz’s Relationship Status at Age 61: Planning For Children?

The television presenter Liz, who is one of the older women on Australian television, has married and divorced a couple of times in her life. But now she has a stable partner with whom she has been with more than a decade already.

Her husband is Ben Crane who is a former 60 Minutes soundman. She has not revealed much about her present-day husband and has not made any public appearances.

Despite being married thrice she still doesn’t have any children of her own, and it’s the most hurtful matter for the aged journalist. And she hates the assumption of people that she doesn’t like children or that she places her job first. 

In an interview back in 2014, Liz said that it wasn’t based on her career and it had a lot to do with bad timing that she had in her past with her ex-husbands.
