The Prime Minister has paid homage to his “long-suffering” wife who has been left in Sydney with the couple’s two children as the PM returns to political life in Canberra.
“She has been carrying the load all of our married life,” the PM told Today Show host Karl Stefanovic on Thursday.
Jenny Morrison, who has been married to the PM since 1990, is known for keeping a low profile and leading a relatively quiet life as her husband runs the country.
“How are your kids going in homeschooling? More importantly, how is Jen going?,” Karl Stefanovic asked the PM.
“She is long suffering – she is supporting (our children) through homeschooling,” the PM said.
“She has been carrying the load all of our married life, particularly with the family.”
Mr Morrison lamented that he missed his wife and children, noting he “won’t get to see them for quite some time” due to the NSW lockdown.
Mr Morrison encouraged Australians to get the AstraZeneca jab on the Today show, noting that Jenny had already been fully vaccinated.
“Jen brought forward her AstraZeneca second dose,” the PM said.
“It’s safe – it’s a very important vaccine that will help protect Australia.”
