In 2017, Sean wed Ashley Moore, and confirmed the happy news by sharing an official image taken at the wedding ceremony, which was held in Dorset. It showed Sean proudly standing with his arm around his new wife. Chatting to The Daily Mail ahead of the wedding, Sean said: “I wasn't planning on getting married again. But then I wasn't planning on meeting someone as amazing as Ashley. I can't wait to spend the rest of our lives together.”
