The 32-year-old got the idea to propose to Bec – whom he met at high school before they reconnected at their 10-year reunion – a few weeks before his audition.
“Bec is super-smart. I knew she’d be distracted by everything going on at The Voice, so it was the only way I could totally surprise her,” he says.
Harrington adds he wanted to make The Voice experience extra special for Bec, as she and the girls drove with him to Sydney from their home in country Victoria for his audition (when pandemic restrictions allowed them to do so).
“It was a massive commitment by her, so I took the ring along with me.
“I just wanted Bec to know how much I love her. She and the girls mean the world to me,” he says.
“She said ‘No’ about four times at first, but I think it was because she was in shock!”
