“For the first two to four years, you’re really close as a couple and then when kids and work come in, you sort of split apart and that’s when the danger zone is – and then you kind of come back after those years when the kid grows up," she said.
The couple first noticed they were going through a “rough period” after welcoming their daughters Phoenix and Lennon to the world (now 6-year-olds and 12 months, respectively.)
“We were just bickering and tired and aggressive and hit having sex and I was like ‘no no no. hold up. We love each other so much, we’ve got to stop,' she continued. "We started going away together once a month to communicate and have sex and talk – we became each other’s best friends again.”
The biggest thing she's learned? Parents should always prioritise sex – even if that requires putting a date in the calendar.
“Go and have a drink. Have sex. Schedule it,” she said.
“If I didn’t schedule sex, I would never have it. I have sex on Tuesdays and Fridays because that’s when the nanny is there. Sometimes it starts a little awkward but then I go ‘Oh I like this.’”
