Ada Nicodemou wears many hats, but perhaps her most treasured is her role as a mother, sister, aunty, and partner.
Her Instagram is filled with posts of her son Johnas and parter Adam Rigby, as well as family milestones and sweet moments from over the years.
After splitting from Johnas’ dad Chrys Xipolitas in 2016 and finding new romance with Adam, the Home And Away star has worked hard to create a positive family dynamic.
That includes plenty of time with her mum Jenny Nicodemou, her brother Costa Nicodemou, his wife Elena Nicodemou, and their daughter Sofia.
In 2020, Ada spoke to Marie Claire about her mother and how her dedicated work ethic in Ada’s childhood inspired the actress.
“My mum Jenny was always the head of our household. She worked seven days a week but took me and my brother everywhere,” she revealed.
“I grew up in a delicatessen, counting back change to customers before I went to school. I get my work ethic from my mum.
“She’s taught me resilience, strength and how to stick up for myself. As a Greek migrant, she’s had to be a tough woman.”
Jenny also taught her the value of family bonds, something Ada still puts first today – just look at her Instagram, which is full of photos from special occasions and family milestones.
Fair warning, the following gallery of Ada and her close family may give you the urge to call your loved ones.

To sign off on her summer holidays, Ada shared a slew of selfies with her son to conclude their time together.
“Fun day in the city with my boy. Back to work next week,” she captioned the pictures.
To make up for Johnas’ lockdown birthday, Ada threw a belated party for her little man.
The actor posted a slew of family photos from the day, which she captioned, “We had a belated birthday party for the little man today, it was so nice to see how much fun he had playing soccer with his friends.
“Happy very late birthday party Johnas. Love you so so much. And a big thanks to @polespatisserie for an amazing #lewishamilton cake that tasted and looked incredible 🍰.”

“Adam and Johnas adore each other; he’s such a great stepdad and has really stepped up,” she explains. “For a man to come into my world and love a child as if he were his own – and love me like I’ve never been loved before – is incredibly special.”
In early 2021 the family christened Costa and Elena’s daughter Sofia. Ada was the woman of the hour as she was bestowed the honour of becoming her niece’s godmother.
