When did she marry Gabbi Tuft, formerly known as Tyler Reks?
Priscilla has been married to Tuft since July 2002.
She married her childhood sweetheart at aged 21, and revealed Gabbi has been her only partner.
“We actually don’t have partners outside of the relationship at all. I was a virgin when we got married 18 and a half years ago — we had never kissed. Our first kiss was on our wedding day,” Priscilla said.
She has proudly stuck by Gabbi through her transition.
Do they have children?
The couple share one daughter, called Mia, who was born in November 2011.
The 9-year-old has rallied behind her father’s decision to transition just like her mother.

Gabbi explained: “It’s an ongoing conversation… I told her, ‘Sweetheart, I’m not going to go out in public right now and go outside,’ and she goes, ‘Why, daddy?’
“‘I’m afraid that people might make fun of me and it might affect you,’ and she leans over gives me the biggest hug and she says, ‘Daddy, I will never make fun of you.’”
Gabbi shared the heart-warming anecdote after promising to be “100 per cent transparent” about her journey.
