‘For most full-time parents me-time in lockdown is the total unicorn – mythical & a beautiful idea but (often) impossible.

‘I have however become skilled at sneaking some Zen moments – like when the kids are safely in the back of our All-New @toyota_aus listening to my singalong Spotify Find Your Freedom playlist, I feel (almost) alone up the front.’

She added that travelling in the car was the ‘perfect blend of family adventure sprinkled with a few mummy moments’.

‘A window down, happy and comfy kids in the back, my favourite tunes, and just my thoughts on an open road – it won’t last long…’ she said.

‘This post is me telling all of you parents – and hopefully inspiring you – that you deserve any kind of getaway you can come up with!’

In the images, Phoebe posed with her little daughter Poppy while Billy sat in the boot of the car.

The family had already enjoyed a fun-filled morning, as Phoebe revealed the trio had enjoyed a spin on their scooters before sitting down to eat.

‘Note: This weather beat us after our scooter so we decided to picnic IN the Kluger’s massive boot – suddenly very grateful for all of that extra room! The three of us, our scooter and our hamper fit perfectly!’ Phoebe added.

He revealed on the show he had been unfaithful to his wife during their marriage during the first episode.

‘I don’t think I was the greatest husband at times,’ he said to the camera. ‘I embarrassed my wife. I’d had an affair with a girl, a woman in Melbourne. That’s true.

‘I was away on tour, and regretfully that happened. Which would have been… it would have been a tough place for Phoebe to be.’
