Hunt was born a Mormon, but is now a born-again Christian. He lives in Australia with his second wife and has six children. The first two children from his first marriage are already adults. Hunt and his second wife, Julie, met in a reggae club around 1994 and have four children. In December 2014 Hunt's older brother John committed suicide at the age of 44. In August 2015, Hunt became a vegan after viewing undercover video footage of the insides of a factory farm. On his Facebook page, where he posted the video, he captioned, “I'm going vegan, hate this”. However, on 7 July 2016, Hunt has not gone completely vegan due to the time demands of the sport, but is a vegetarian. Auckland's UFC team and Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa (Khal Drogo) performed “Haka - a traditional war cry, dance or challenge from the Maori people from New Zealand” to cheer and support Hunt on his upcoming fight against Derrick Lewis.
