“Eight years ago I would not have thought this is where my life would be; married, being so proud and having the life that I do with my family,” Assetta said. “This is the ideal version of what I always wanted but never thought I would get. I feel very lucky.”

Assetta and Madden frequently appear in each other’s social media feeds, and Assetta told the Star Observer that he enjoys sharing their life together with others.

“I became very comfortable in my own skin and I loved living the life I was living and I wanted to share that with everyone else.” 

“Along the way that has inspired other people. I have received countless messages from people on social media about how inspiring it is to see a performer, and obviously with my husband, just living our lives and being proud of what we are and who we are as people. I hope that encourages other people to live their truest lives and just love each other and spread joy and be happy. I love sharing the joys of my day-to-day life in the hope that other people will do the same.”
