“It’s family first. It makes me more efficient. Work is work time, then I come home – and there is nothing more grounding. You’re fawned over and wined and dined in LA, and you come home and have to change the nappy.”
Talking about the journey, Andrew had once said:
“I saw someone that I just fell for, it was amazing, You can’t really quantify or explain emotions. It’s part of my business, sure, but when it’s the real deal. Ours is a very ordinary love story, I suppose. We met, we spent time together, and then I proposed and we got married and had children.”
