The doting father also told presenter Brodie Harper that despite the distance, they all keep in contact thanks to modern marvels of social media, FaceTime and text messaging.

'It's hard being based on the other side of the world but being teenagers now, the good thing is they have time with me and time with their mum and they have time with their friends,' he told the program.

'We make sure we always communicate each day, we either message each other every morning, every night and then we FaceTime and we call.'
