McKinnon was just 22-years-old when his rugby career was cut short after suffering a spinal cord injury while playing for the Newcastle Knights in March 2014. Just days after finding out he was a quadriplegic, ending his NRL career, he proposed to Teigan from his hospital bed. Since his injury, Teigan has remained by his side, supporting him as well as documenting his recovery. 

At the pair's wedding in October 2017, McKinnon fulfilled his promise of walking down the aisle with his wife.
