In September, Andre revealed he’d been trying to relocate his wife and children to Australia as his mother’s health declines but it had been a logistical nightmare.
“We want to get out there as soon as we can and stay for as long as possible, but it’s tricky with the kids’ school,” he wrote in his new! magazine column.
“If it all goes to plan, it’ll be December and we’ll all be going to Oz as a family. We want to get out there as soon as we can and stay for as long as possible, but it’s tricky with the kids’ school. They have different timings, which makes it complicated.”
“Mum’s struggling at the moment, though. She’s not doing great,” he wrote at the time.
“She’s suffering a bit and declining. I was with her a few months ago. We’ve just got to be with her as much as possible. It’s just age. She’s got all sorts of things going on now.”
