Australian Idol runner up from 2003 Shannon Noll, 32, spoke to Woman’s Day this week in an article about his pride of his brothers. Also mentioned is Shannon’s wife, Rochelle, and their three children together, Cody, 6, Blake, 4, and Sienna, 11 months.
Shannon describes Rochelle as a wonderful and loving mother who has been alone and done a wonderful job in raising their children while he has been away working.
Rochelle is a godsend. She’s been a single parent for most of the last three years. She’s so supportive and kept sending me pictures of the kids over the phone.
Shannon did however say that this has had an affect on his family. Most notably, that his young daughter, Sienna, found it hard to get back in sync with her father for the first few days when he returned.
When I got back, Sienna looked at me for the first few days with this expression of, "Who are you?" It took me three days to win her over.
