John Halliday Bio, Age, Job, Down For Love, Still With Emma?

Netflix’s Down for Love is the first-ever reality TV series that spotlights the relationships of people with disabilities. This dating show centers around hopeful singles with Down syndrome as they look for love in New Zealand. Each core member of the show has Down syndrome. John Halliday, who we are going to talk about now is one of them.

John Halliday On Netflix’s Down For Love

John Halliday had been looking for love for many years before being featured on Down For Love.

So, before going on dates, John was made to meet Dave Hicks, a relationship educator, who gave him the former tips on interacting with his partner. Dave also suggested that he present the ring in his pocket as a friendship ring instead of an engagement one. And so John met Emma. He looked pretty excited to meet her at the Auckland Art Gallery in Auckland, New Zealand. Together, they actually enjoyed the beautiful arts and discovered so much about each other’s passion for art. While there, John also gave Emma the afore-talked about “friendship ring”, which she gladly took.

To viewers, John was introduced as someone who does not let his disability stop him from living his life to the fullest. Also, as someone who loves adventure and even participated in the Special Olympics for snowboarding.

As per a recent news article, Oamaru police constable Stew Hewett is head of the delegation for the New Zealand team competing in the Special Olympics World Winter Games in Boise, Idaho, in February 2024. And in his team, there is also John, in his role as a snowboarder, and skiers Thomas van der Lugt and Aaron Wild.

This team from New Zealand team will assemble in Auckland on 29 January before flying to the United States the following day.

Are John Halliday And Emma From Down For Love Still Together?

As of writing, John Halliday and Emma were yet to give an update about the status of their relationship. So, it was not understood if or not they are still together.

Both of them do not seem very active on social media. So, it is maybe natural for them to keep their affair not out and about as the others. In the meantime, fans anyway seemed optimistic that the two might still be with each other, given their mutual affection and shared interests. They seemed to bond quite well just over their alikeness as artists.

One thing that might have caused a problem though for John and Emma, might be the long distance between their homes, Alexandra and Auckland, which are two different sides of New Zealand.
