El: Everything is going really well…
Lee: We don’t know when the actual [anniversary] date is… There were a couple of big moments we could pick [from].
Lee: There was a night when it was pissing down with rain, and El came and lay on top of me and then put a banana leaf on her, and I was thinking, "Oh yeah, this girl really cares about me." I was in a world of pain at that stage – I don’t do cold well – and El obviously doesn’t have an inch of body fat on her, so her doing that made me feel pretty special.
El: He had a boner. [Jokes]
Lee: It was freezing cold – there was no way that I could get a boner! [Laughs] It was weird, because in a game where you’re not supposed to trust anyone, for some strange reason I knew she was never going to turn against me. I just had a gut feeling.
Lee: I asked the producers when we caught up at the Logies [in April] and they said, "We are good at casting, but we aren’t that good." [Laughs] I think… all the stars aligned. I think the gods were being kind to us.
Lee: That happened in February. It’s been great! I wanted her here all the time from the start; it was just then blending the family together.
Lee: It was something a bit different, but you work together as a family.
El: There’s a bit of an age difference, so they like different things. Sometimes Darcy and I will do things by ourselves, although we’ll spend at least one day together on the weekend as a family.
El: I’m feeling quite clucky at the moment. I love kids, but it’s a difficult stage in our lives, because we are working towards our goals. The lifestyle we live at the moment allows us to achieve those goals, so I think at the moment the time isn’t right. There might be a time later down the road where we might decide to have a little bub.
Lee: We’ll keep you posted!
