Lisa Curry and Grant Kenny join forces to cheer on son Jett Kenny on Dancing With The Stars

Proud parents indeed!

By Alex Lilly
Jett Kenny has been a fan favourite on this year's Dancing With The Stars but there are two people who will always be lifelong supporters.
As the surf lifesaver danced the tango with partner Lily Cornish during Tuesday night's show, his proud parents Lisa Curry and Grant Kenny cheered enthusiastically along with Lisa's second husband Mark Tabone.
Despite his poor score on Monday night's episode of DWTS, his mum, dad and stepdad all showed their support with a standing ovation.
Lisa even shared a snap of her former and current husband captioning her Instagram photo, "Ready to go !! Whoooo Tune in @dancingon10 🕺🏻💃 GO JETT AND LILY @jertkenny @lilycornish @mark66andrew @ghk63 So exciting !!"
Her followers were quick to comment on the beautifully blended Curry/Kenny/Tabone family dynamic.
"Admire you and Grant and how your children always come first. You should be very proud of yourself and your family," commented one follower.
"It's lovely to see both parents supporting Jett, and Mark as well, so nice to see and goodluck Jett and Lily great couple @lisacurry ❤️," wrote another.

Despite ending their marriage in 2009, Lisa and Grant have remained good friends and continue to put their children first.
Lisa previously said on The Morning Show, "We are one big happy family. We always have been and we always will be...But you know times change and things change and you have to find the direction that you want to go in life and I've done that."
Jett Kenny often has his mum's support from the front row whether he's battling the Australian Ninja Warrior obstacle course or stripping down on The Real Full Monty.
When asked by Now To Love last July if there would be a "special someone" in his life cheering him on during his appearance on ANW, Jett said, "Nah, the only female that's cheering me on is my mum!"

Woman's Day previously reported that Jett is breaking many DWTS hearts with several dancers vying for his attention. But it's his own partner Lily who has the family's tick of approval.
"Lisa, Grant and the girls [his two sisters Morgan and Jaimi Lee] absolutely love Lily," our source previously said.
"Over the past few years, Jett's had women throwing themselves at him, but he's never really had a girlfriend. He's the sort of guy who would rather wait for the right one – and it looks like he's got himself a winner with Lily."
"He's an old-fashioned gentleman, which is rare these days, and before Lisa encouraged him towards a career in showbiz and modelling, he was happy to just hang with his mates and spend time with his family."
"I know Lily loves how genuine he is and that he's still pretty down to earth despite growing up in a famous family and having all that attention from the other dancers. I really do think they are a great match."
