When a mutual friend introduced Brock Davies to Scheana Shay in 2019, he had no idea she was a reality star — though she made enough of an impression for him to slide into her DMs soon afterward. By the time their two-month anniversary rolled around, the New Zealand-born athlete was taking her on surprise trips to Australia and Bali, where, as Scheana later explained on Vanderpump Rules, he “did the Dirty Dancing move and plopped a kiss” on her, which apparently sealed the deal.

About two years later, Brock made his debut on Vanderpump Rules Season 9, along with his and Scheana’s daughter, Summer Moon Honey Davies, who was born in April 2021. Engagement rumors began swirling shortly after the two welcomed their baby girl, and the couple confirmed in July that Brock had proposed. Though they were initially planning a November 2022 wedding in Bali, the couple married in Cancún, Mexico, on August 23, 2022. Fellow Bravolebrities Tom Schwartz, Tom Sandoval, Ariana Madix, and Raquel Leviss all participated in the ceremony, while Summer acted as flower girl. Viewers will see the destination wedding on Pump Rules Season 10.

Here’s everything else to know about the Vanderpump star.

Brock Davies’ Job

After playing professional rugby in France and England for three years beginning at age 19, Brock briefly returned to Australia before moving to the United States. There, he enrolled at Colorado State University-Pueblo, where he joined the football team on the defensive line and on special teams. After turning 26, he set his sight on a career in the NFL, and in 2017 even got a tryout invitation from the New England Patriots.

After leaving his pro sports career behind, Brock opened two F45 gyms in San Diego and began working as a personal trainer. When the lockdown forced many gyms to close in 2020, he launched Homebody, a platform that allows fitness influencers to monetize content, such as live virtual group classes. Users are able to access their “favorite trainers, influencers, and celebrities” from the comfort of their own home, while the instructors are able to simultaneously build their personal brands.

Brock Davies’ Kids

In the Vanderpump Rules Season 9 trailer, Lala Kent claimed to Katie Maloney that Brock hadn’t spoken to his kids in four years. The children she was referring to are his daughter, Winter, and son, Eli, who both live with their mother in Australia. Brock shot this down in a 2020 Instagram comment, writing, “The kids have a great mother and stepdad, but I promise you I am doing my part to be with them.”

In a September 2021 Page Six interview, Brock cautioned fans not to jump to conclusions, but said he’ll be transparent about his past mistakes on the series. “I told my troops through the season I had to step up to the plate, know I have a past, and if I could change it, I would,” he said. He later shared that the children’s mother was his on-and-off high school sweetheart, and that they found out she was pregnant after they’d called it quits for good while he was playing rugby in France. They decided to give their relationship another go, but once they broke up again, they discovered she was pregnant with their second child.

“I’m their dad, but I’m not the right person to raise these kids,” he admitted on an August 2022 episode of Lala Kent’s “Give Them Lala” podcast, crediting their stepdad, Trevor, as a “legend” of a guy, with whom he had recently communicated. “They’re in a good situation with somebody who treats them like their own kids. . . . He’s been there the whole time…. I did have two kids but I wasn’t a good dad to them.”

After Lala previously accused him of being an “absent father” on Pump Rules, Brock explained during a Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen appearance in November 2021 that his ex wouldn’t allow him to communicate with their kids until he caught up on his back child support. When that was rectified, he slowly began working on building a relationship with his two eldest children, though. “Once we started reconnecting, Winter had no problem coming up on the Facetime,” he explained to Lala in August 2022, referencing his daughter. “But then Eli didn’t want to. And he still doesn’t… I was a big influence on him and when I wasn’t around . . . and he still felt that [abandonment]. So we’re still working on that relationship. The rule is, it’s up to the kids.”

During an earlier joint interview with Us Weekly in September 2021, Scheana cited travel restrictions as the reason she and Summer hadn’t met Brock’s other children yet. Brock, for his part, added that he hoped all three kids would get to meet each other “sooner rather than later,” though he didn’t have a specific timeline. “You’ll find out this season, we’re still working on our relationships there with my ex,” he explained ahead of Season 9.

Scheana, who experienced a miscarriage in 2020 before welcoming Summer, has said she and Brock have discussed having more kids, though it “will not happen anytime soon.” She explained that she’s at high risk, adding that they’ve considered everything from “unfreezing [her] eggs and turning them into embryos” to surrogacy or adoption. “[We’re] definitely open to expanding the family just not sure how or when,” she told E! News.

Brock Davies’ Instagram

As of late, Brock’s Instagram has documented his relationship with Scheana, as well as him becoming a father for the third time. The often shirtless trainer, who snowboards and rides a motorcycle, also shares plenty of fitness tips and motivational messages. “Do you want to know a secret? Life is bloody hard!” he captioned a September 2021 post. “You face challenges, road blocks, failures, rejections and criticism. As hard as it is… you wouldn’t appreciate the good stuff like ambition, drive, vision, dedication or success.”
