He announced his shock exit from Neighbours back in August as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
But despite departing the long-running soapie, it's clear Tim Robards is still very much part of the Neighbours family.

On Monday evening the new dad, who welcomed his daughter Elle with wife Anna Heinrich last week, revealed the slew of generous gifts his former workplace had sent the new family-of-three.
Sharing a touching video of his loot via his Instagram page, the father-of-one was simply chuffed with the thoughtful gift pack.
"I just got this from the team at Neighbours. Thanks guys," Tim explained as he showed his fans the array of goodies.
"A nice little teddy bear and then this is really cute... This is a bunch of flowers but it's all socks and wraps and all that kind of stuff. Thanks so much guys, very very thoughtful," the Bachelor star said.
"Elle will love. Thanks team. Miss you all," the 38-year-old captioned the video.

Throughout Anna's pregnancy, the couple battled with months of separation due to the pandemic.
With Tim based in Melbourne as filming Neighbours and Anna residing in Sydney, they were forced to be apart for much of the pregnancy.
In August, the reality-star-turned-actor announced he had made the "gut-wrenching" decision to quit the soapie so he could be with his wife in the final stages of her pregnancy.

Reflecting on his decision to walk away from the role of a lifetime playing Pierce Greyson, the new dad admitted it wasn't a choice he made lightly.
"That was probably one of the most stressful times in my life," Tim told Now To Love.
"It was such a big decision that I didn't take lightly. I wasn't sleeping well, I was so stressed out."

Meanwhile as the new parents settle into life with their daughter Elle, Anna has taken to Instagram to give fans a refreshingly real glimpse of how she spends most of her time - breastfeeding her bub.
"Time to feed. Wake up Elle. Me most of the day," the 33-year-old captioned the candid selfie showing her in a button-down white top as she reclined on the couch.
