Details about my life, my parents, and my family:
Amy was born and raised in Dumfries, Scotland, a beautiful town known as the “Queen of the South.” Her family’s life revolved around football, so she has always been interested in sports. Amy’s love of being in the spotlight might come from her father, the football player Davie John Irons, who played center back for 26 years for teams like Ayr United, Clydebank, and Dunfermline Athletic.
Husband of Amy Irons
Amy is not married. She has a relationship with Fraz Curran, though. Amy used to be with a businessman named Wayne Ewer, who killed himself in June 2018. He tried to kill himself on June 17, 2018, and died a few days later in the hospital. He was 34 years old.
Wayne drank and used cocaine for hours before he killed himself. He knew Amy was against drugs, so he tried not to tell her about his problem.
Amy also said that he had tried to hurt himself after drinking and taking the drug together.
On that fatal day, Wayne called NHS24 and left the door to their Glasgow apartment open so paramedics could find him. He died four days later at Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow. He died in Amy’s arms, with her family and Wayne’s dad, Graeme, and sister, Tammy, all around him.
Amy has a tattoo of him to remember him.
Amy told the Daily Record two weeks after the event that she drove to a bridge and almost jumped off because it hurt so much to lose her partner, whom she called her “soulmate.” She said that the only thing that stopped her was her fear that her family would have to go through the same pain she had.
