Since Sally has kept her personal life just to herself, it's pretty difficult to disclose the details about her other personal life. It is known, however, that the pair shares a child together. She took her child back in January 2013 to view the football match in Anfield for the first time, the five-time winners of the Champions League home stadium, Liverpool.
