Hollywood star Sam Worthington and his wife, Lara Worthington, have been married for six years, but the pair run an ultra-private family life. Here is all we know about Sam and Lara Worthington.


Months after speculations on when the next Avatar installation would be released. Disney exclusively shared the official trailer of "Avatar: The Way of Water" in theaters on "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness."

Worthington's hero character portrayed love amid the strife between his people and his love interest's clan. However, his love story with his wife, Lara Worthington, channels a different plot in real life. 

Sam and Lara Worthington live a private life despite being a spotlight couple. The pair had a private wedding in 2014, and it was not until months later that Lara decided to share some details.


In an interview with Kyle and Jackie O on KIIS 1065, Lara made it known that their wedding had been a "very intimate" affair. She recalled their big day:

"We just popped into Melbourne where Sam's family's from, and we had less than 10 people."

The lovebirds rented a house in the city Down Under, wrote their own vows, and said them in front of their close-knit family members.


Lara explained that she was in London before the wedding and found a Louis Vuitton dress for the wedding.

Lara, who had been six months pregnant at the time of the nuptials, prepared the wedding meals with her mother. She described the wedding as "super chill."

One year after their wedding, she and Sam became first-time parents as they welcomed their son Rocket Zot. The couple's second child, Racer, joined the beautiful family in 2016. Lara announced their third pregnancy in 2019.



Lara is an Australian model who came into the limelight after she spewed the words, "Where the [expletive] are you?" during a campaign for Tourism Australia. Lara's feature on the campaign was considered too risque by the United Kingdom, and it was banned.

This got heads turning in the model's way, and from there, her career took off. While the fashion star jetted around the globe, she met the love of her life. The duo first met at Central Park in New York.

Sam and Lara courted for one year before saying their "I do"s in an intimate wedding. However, when it came to motherhood, Lara stayed tight-lipped, only revealing the birth of her children months later.


Presently she and Sam are parents to three kids, with their last child also a boy named River. The couple loves a big family and might add more to their brood. 

Lara  is a top model, and she is in high demand in Australia. She is the news face of swimwear brand Seafolly and skincare franchise Emma Lewisham. Lara Wortinhting's net worth is $7.7 million.
