    She’s the star of one of Australia’s most popular drama series, and one of the country’s most in-demand actresses.

    But Offspring Asher Keddie largely lives her life out of the spotlight, and keeps her relationship with Australian painter Vincent Fantauzzo even more private.

    However the couple, who tied the knot in a secret wedding ceremony in Fiji in April, looked proud to step out together at the Melbourne International Film Festival opening night on Thursday.

    Because I'm happy! The Logie Award winning actress beamed with pride as she posed with her painter partner on the red carpet

    The Gold Logie Award winner couldn’t help but smile widely as she wrapped an arm around her artist husband  as the two posed on the red carpet.

    The 40-year-old had her blonde hair tied back in a top knot and wore a chic black trench coat with flats.

    Asher and her renowned artist husband weren’t the only stars who turned out for the Melbourne film industry’s night of nights.
