Speaking recently to The Sun Peter said that he has been having “sleepless nights” over the worries that Emily might become unwell.
Emily is a doctor and since the pandemic broke out she has found herself on the front line while Peter has been looking after their children at home.
“I worry about my mum and dad because they’re in their late 80s and in Australia, in the high risk group. It’s really scary. It’s like a world war but without the violence of the war – it’s a war without the guns.”
He then continued to say:
“Of course I’ve had sleepless nights, of course I worry about Emily, I worry about the kids.
“She says to me that her biggest worry is me getting it because I’m 47. I’m not concerned about that, I am concerned about her a lot and that follows through to the kids.
“She’s thinking about me and my contact with the children and passing anything onto me and I am thinking about her.”
It’s a massive worry for Peter and all the family members of key workers at this awful time but we are so thankful for them putting their lives at risk to save others.
Emily is doing a fantastic job.
