Lisa Curry pens rare and heartfelt message to ex-husband Grant Kenny

Their relationship may have ended in 2009 but it seems former Olympic swimmer Lisa Curry is still on good terms with her ex-husband, former ironman Grant Kenny.

Lisa took to her social media profiles to wish the father of her three children a happy birthday in a rare public display of affection, while also revealing the sweet nickname she has for him.  

“GK doesn’t do social media … so I’ll do it for you today. HAPPY BIRTHDAY GK. Have a great day,” said the 58-year-old alongside a photo of Grant cradling his grandson Flynn.

Lisa also tagged her three adult children they share together, daughters Jaimi Lee and Morgan and son Jet, while Grant shares seven-year-old daughter Trixie Box with television presenter Fifi Box.

Her post was inundated with well wishes from fans, as they praised the I’m A Celeb star’s approach to family.

"You're amazing Lisa. Such a happy beautiful human. Your family is so blessed to have your diversity," one fan wrote.

"That one is a bit special!! Just beautiful and yes Grant still looking pretty good," another added.

"Happy birthday to an Aussie legend Grant Kenny," a third said.

Lisa and Grant separated in 2009 and officially divorced in 2017 after tying the knot in 1986.

Last month, Lisa explained to Now To Love and that she and Grant have always strived to be harmonious co-parents.

"Grant and I as parents, we always said we will always be there for all our kids, for everything that they do," she explained.

"Every success, every failure, every try, everything it didn't matter. Just being there and being proud is really important as parents."
