Cortnee and her partner, Charlotte, are relatively quiet about their relationship but they do love to share photos together to their Instagrams.

Cortnee has talked about her relationship with Charlotte in an interview with Optus Sport and discusses how they never felt the need to ‘come out’.

“We kind of looked at it like we shouldn’t have to do that, like why do we have to ‘announce’ that we’re together, and sit down with the parents and all that stuff?” Cortnee told Optus Sport.

“We didn’t do any of that, which was cool, and I think it was the best way for us to approach it. It helps obviously that we’ve got families that are very accepting.”
