Nova FM’s Michael ‘Wippa’ Wipfli refuses to change his wife Lisa’s ring

Nova FM’s Michael ‘Wippa’ Wipfli refuses to change his wife Lisa’s engagement ring after she confessed she didn’t like the one he gave her eight years ago

Nova FM host Michael ‘Wippa’ Wipfli proposed to his wife, Lisa, during a romantic trip to Switzerland in September 2012.

And the radio star, 41, revealed on Thursday that Lisa was now asking for a new ring because she didn’t like the one he proposed with eight years ago.

He told his Fitzy & Wippa co-host Sarah McGilvray he refused to change Lisa’s ring, despite her constant requests for a new rock.

‘It’s sentimental’: Nova FM’s Michael ‘Wippa’ Wipfli is refusing to change his wife Lisa’s engagement ring after she confessed she didn’t like the one he gave her eight years ago

Wippa explained: ‘She said to me, “I’ve never mentioned this to you before, but I don’t like my engagement ring.”‘

‘But it’s almost like a snapshot in time, right? We went on a holiday, it’s sentimental, we were in Switzerland, we had a beautiful moment on the balcony overlooking the lake and everything that was in that moment is in that ring.’

‘Take away that ring, lose that moment,’ he added.

Lisa then called into the station and insisted she ‘adores the ring’ and that it was her husband’s idea to buy her a new one after he discovered the diamond needed to be repaired.

She explained: ‘[Wippa] discovered the rock was loose. He said, “Don’t wear that, let’s get that fixed.”

‘And I said, “Maybe this is a chance for me to remodel this a bit, keep the centre stone and everything.” I’m not asking for a bigger ring.

‘And he said, “Well, hang on that represents a time in our lives so I would rather that you keep that ring and we’ll get you a new one.”‘

Lisa, who didn’t seem to appreciate the suggestion she was ungrateful, continued: ‘Can I just say something here? To men out there who think the ring needs to stay the same forever and they get all precious about it, if I made you wear the same pair of shoes and shirt for the rest of your life, you wouldn’t do it. Same as a ring!’ 

The Wipflis married in September 2013 in front of 150 guests on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula, a year after getting engaged.

They share three children, sons Theodore, six, and Jack, four, and 11-month-old daughter Francesca Vera Alice.
