‘Yes, that’s a bruise under my eye, don’t ask me why,’ she said as she began a Q&A with fans. Although only talking about one black eye, Erin appears to have bruising under both eyes.
Erin was asked numerous times by fans about what happened to her eye, when she joked that she had a ‘massive punch on Santa as he didn’t give her another dachshund.’
She soon clarified that she was not involved in a domestic violence incident with her partner Mick Russell, 43.

‘I just want to 100 per cent confirm, no one has hit me,’ Erin said.
‘Mick hasn’t done this or anything like that, I would never let a guy do that to me again… you guys are actually going to die when I tell you what’s happened.’
She added: ‘No fights with Santa or Mick… it’s a really funny story, I just don’t want to tell you this yet. It’s definitely not a nose job, I can’t afford a nose job.’
Daily Mail Australia has contacted a representative of Erin for comment, in relation to this story.

Erin has been dating Mick for two years and recently celebrated their second anniversary.
She shared a picture of the pair kissing and gushed: ‘You’ve made me incredibly happy the past 2 years, along with making me insane at times.’
‘I absolutely love having a best friend and a boyfriend all wrapped in one. I am extremely blessed and grateful to have you and your kids in my life. Thank you for putting up with me.’
In January, Erin told NW magazine that she’s ‘not a wicked stepmother’ as she spoke candidly about her family life.

‘I’m kind of like a cool older aunty rather than the wicked stepmum!’ Erin said.
‘When we first became a couple, people were saying stuff like he is my “sugar daddy” and that we wouldn’t last.
‘But I think we’ve shut down that talk now by being together for as long as we have.’
The couple are both from Melton, Melbourne, which is where they are believed to have met, and went on their first holiday together in December 2018.
Erin bravely discussed her fertility issues with NW last year, saying that she ‘can’t give birth naturally’ due to the fact she has ‘a small pelvic area’.
She also suffers from endometriosis and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), which can affect a woman’s fertility.
