"I think nothing can prepare for you for how tired you are," says Rachel. Rachel gave birth to her daughter Adelaide Rose in June and has a two year old son Banjo.
Rachel suffered no morning sickness with either of her two pregnancies, and while Banjo’s labor took five hours, Adelaide was in a rush and was delivered after 75 minutes. Rachel practised pre-natal yoga and is lucky enough to be back to her pre-baby size.
While the couple have just bought a house in LA (where the photo shoot took place) they have already made a decision to return to Australia when Banjo is ready to start school, "It’s unfair on little children to travel back and forth. I do like LA … but we miss our family and friends desperately. And I miss our relationship with the beach. I can’t wait to see Banjo in his little Nippers hat and I hope Adelaide will be one of those gorgeous strapping lifesaving girls on the northern beaches [in Sydney]." Rachel admits that while she and Andrew are hands on she isn’t ashamed to admit that they have a nanny, "I know some women don’t like to admit the even have nannies, but I’ve learned a tremendous amount from mine."
