Australia's deputy PM Barnaby Joyce expecting child with new partner

Australia's deputy PM Barnaby Joyce expecting child with new partner”

Australia's deputy prime minister, who a year ago had to win a by-election to stay in Parliament after it emerged it was also a NZ citizen, confirmed he had split from his wife Natalie, with whom he has four daughters.

The pair are said to be very happy together.

The Daily Telegraph reported that the couple had moved in together and Mr Joyce was "madly in love" but the 50-year-old is concerned about the welfare of his daughters, who are in their late teens and early 20s.

The Daily Telegraph published a picture purportedly of the pregnant Campion, who once worked for the paper.

Mr Joyce, who opposed same-sex marriage and abstained from the vote, revealed that he had separated from his wife during the debate in federal parliament late a year ago.

Mr Joyce, who was born in Tamworth, acknowledged he was separated and said he was "not a saint" in a parliamentary admission past year.

While Mr Joyce has previously announced his separation from wife Natalie, he is yet to make a public statement about the rumoured pregnancy.

'It is a special relationship between a man and a woman, predominantly for the objective of bringing children into the world.

Rumours of an affair and baby surfaced during the New England by-election in October but they were not confirmed. "I have always said I wouldn't vote against the wishes of Australians and I didn't - that's why I abstained from the vote given I do not support a change in the definition of marriage", he told Fairfax at the time.

What do you think about Barnaby Joyce's behaviour in light of his comments about marriage?

A spokesperson for Joyce last night told The Australian that he would not be commenting on his personal life further than what he offered in parliament previous year. "I'll acknowledge that I'm now separated, so that's on the record".
