She made her reality TV debut when she tied the knot with ‘husband’ Jayden Eynaud during Wednesday night’s episode of Married At First Sight.

But Eden Harper is no stranger to life in the public eye, as her father Phil Harper has been an administrator with the Adelaide Crows AFL club for 27 years.

He began as a media manager and is currently the head of Women’s Football at the club.

Speaking to Daily Mail on Thursday, Eden, 28, revealed the moment she introduced her on-screen husband, Jayden, 26, to her father.

‘You’ll see whether or not my dad gets to meet Jayden,’ she teased.

‘That’s something that will happen a little bit later on.’ 

Eden also shared a sad detail about her wedding day.

‘Unfortunately my dad wasn’t able to attend the wedding on the day,’ she disclosed.

This absence was attributed to the secretive nature of the show.

‘Obviously with MAFS everything’s so secretive and we didn’t find out the date of our wedding until maybe a week before, and it was just too late for my dad to rearrange work commitments,’ Eden explained.

Jayden and Eden are set to be one of the stand out couples this year, with production sources dubbing them early fan favourites.
