‘I had a beautiful man in my life, I still do. He’s an incredible father and an incredible friend to me but why can’t women seek more?’ she said.

‘That married life I realised wasn’t what I wanted. And it wasn’t that I realised, “Oh I like women now, I’m going to leave my marriage”, it wasn’t that. I realised I wanted more.’

‘She was overseas for the first five to six months. We didn’t dive straight into a relationship but we definitely connected straight away,’ she said.

‘In a way, [Kennedy] changed my life in the sense that… obviously I dated women and men, but she made me realise I can actually see myself in a relationship with a woman long term and I can see myself having a life there.’
