The 36-year-old, who is married to West Tigers player Benji Marshall, called Steven her 'person' in a gushing Instagram post on Tuesday.

'Scrolling through our photos and videos together makes me laugh and bursts my heart open a little,' she wrote, alongside a gallery of photos of the pair together.

'You are my brother. I know we were related in another lifetime (because we have the same toes and blood condition) we have travelled the world, shared our secrets, belly laughed hard to our own private jokes, had lap dances in Vegas together.'

She continued: 'You are my person. I trust you. I love you. I thank you for your constant loyalty, support and joy. Now let’s eat cake and celebrate the beautiful human you are [Steven].'

Zoe and Steven's relationship has raised eyebrows in the past.

'You are my person. I trust you. I love you. I thank you for your constant loyalty, support and joy,' she wrote on Instagram

Back in January, the NRL WAG was forced to respond to 'really weird questions' she was getting on Instagram about the state of her marriage.

Zoe , who was on holiday in Singapore with Steven at the time, was accused of spending 'more time' with the openly gay designer than with her husband, Benji.

Sharing screenshots of comments from her followers, the 36-year-old clarified that Benji loves Steven 'just as much' as she does. 

She also pointed out that her husband was the one who'd suggested she take a holiday with Steven in the first place.
