David Hoflin’s Wife Natalie Blair: Her Full Bio
People might know Natalie Blair as David Holflin’s wife but she is already an established actress herself. She first gained prominent fame from her appearance in the Australian series, “Neighbours.”
Let us take a dive into the details of who Natalie is, her career, her marriage to David Hoflin, her kids, and her short and secret romance with someone unexpected.
Who is Natalie Blair? Her Family Background
Natalie Blair Hoflin is an Australian actress who was born on April 16, 1984, to her mother Maureen and father John Blair. She grew up in Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia. Her father, John Blair, is a former Australian rules footballer turned coach.

As for her education, Natalie studied at Lourdes Hill College, Hawthorne.
How did Natalie get a role in “Neighbours?”
Natalie has always been a talented actor. However, she couldn’t showcase her full skills when she auditioned for the Australian television drama series, “Neighbours.” Though she impressed her casting director, Jan Russ, but did not get any role.
However, six months later, Jan reached out to Natalie once again to ask her if she wanted to audition for the role of Carmella Cammeniti. The producers did not need more convincing and cast her right away since they had to fill the spot Delta Goodrem had left.
The actress started filming as soon as she graduated from school. Natalie played in “Neighbours” for five years until 2009, only returning briefly for two episodes in March 2011.
Achievements from “Neighbours”
Her impressive acting in Neighbours even brought her the Most Popular New Female Talent award at the 47th Annual Logie Awards.
She was then nominated for both the Gold and Silver Logie for Most Popular Personality on Australian Television in 2007. Interestingly enough, Natalie received the same nominations the next year as well.
The actress even won Queen of Teen at the Dolly Teen Choice Awards at Sydney’s Luna Park in 2007.
Credits in other Movies and TV Shows
After her success with Neighbours, Natalie started getting roles in several other films and series. In 2007, she went on to star as Snow White in the Spillers Ltd Production of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs at the Shrewsbury Music Hall.
She also played the role of chief villain Connie Burns in the feature film, Stage Fright, alongside Clare Bowen and Jason Smith, in 2009.
The Aussie actress even played the lead role in the 2012 romantic comedy, The Groomless Bride, starring the infamous Australian criminal, Chopper Read.
Her Marriage to David Hoflin
Natalie first met David Hoflin during the shooting of Neighbours. The two started dating in 2008 and it wasn’t long before David got down on his knee as they got engaged on March 10, 2012.
After a year, Natalie and David married on January 4, 2013, exchanging their vows in Warburton, Victoria. When Natalie was active on Instagram, she often showed off her husband with cute pictures of them together.
Meanwhile, her husband David is a Swedish-Australian actor, famous for his work in numerous series including Z: The Beginning of Everything, starring Christina Ricci and Ocean Girl.
Natalie Blair Became a Mother In 2016
Natalie and David welcomed their first baby, son Finn, on July 29, 2016. Initially, Natalie announced that she was pregnant on social media in March 2016.
“Looky what we made! Bubba Hoflin coming in July,” she captioned the post. The hashtag “#20weeks” gave the idea that she was almost halfway along in her pregnancy journey.
Natalie posted frequently on Instagram to flaunt her growing baby bump and keep her followers updated on her pregnancy journey.
Natalie’s Controversial Breastfeeding Period
In March 2018, David Hoflin’s wife went to her social media to talk about how she felt “embarrassment and shame” when people questioned her for continuing to breastfeed her almost 2-year-old son (19 months to be exact).
She posted on her now-deleted Instagram account in hopes of calling out people to respect others’ choices. When people kept asking her if she would stop breastfeeding anytime soon, Natalie felt that the tone of those questions was disapproving.
So, she went ahead to voice out her thoughts and her pride over being able to breastfeed her son even at the age he was at.
“The truth of the matter is, this is my path, my truth, my journey and I shouldn’t have to be embarrassed or hide it,” Natalie wrote in the caption. “Breast fed, bottle fed, formula fed, it’s all good…we are all doing our best to raise these little humans. But let’s show a little respect to ALL paths travelled.”
