He was very young to be starting a family, and at the same time he was juggling that with his career and it was sometimes difficult, there was so much going on,” Elsa said in her Elle Australia cover story. “But he was always trying to be the best dad and has never failed to make me feel like his family is the most important thing to him and [going through that] is how we’ve become so strong together.”
Elsa also spoke about how having kids impacted her career.
“It’s interesting how you can be a successful woman who has been working her whole life, and then you have kids and suddenly your career isn’t as important and you don’t appreciate it as much. You just think, ‘What am I doing? I have been fighting all my life for this and now I don’t know if I really want it?’” she said. “It’s unfair in a way, because I don’t think men go through that. But when you become a mom, everything that was important goes into second position. You change a lot, you mature, you see life differently and learn so many things.”
