Getaway host Catriona Rowntree didn't expect to meet her soulmate during a huge country party on a farm, but that is how she met her now-husband James Pettit.
At the time, she couldn't imagine leaving her family in Sydney for farm life in Victoria. But this "fling" with a farmer blossomed into a real romance, with James dropping to one knee in 2007.
The following year on April 5, 2008, James and Catriona exchanged wedding vows in a beautiful chapel.
Now, Catriona has fully embraced the farm life! In November 2023, she shared a rare photo alongside her husband to Instagram.
"Oh Lordy ladies, how did I end up here!!!" she captioned the photo.
"All is well, feeding the troops, harvest in full swing. 'Ave a good weekend!"
In an interview with 9Entertainment, Catriona revealed James' way of showing romance.
"James' idea of romance is organising the rams to join the ewes so that they have their babies on my birthday, he thinks that's beautiful," she shared.
On August 5, 2009, they welcomed their first child together, a son called Andrew John Rowntree Pettit with her second son, Charles Stephen Rowntree Pettit arriving on March 11, 2011.
At the time of her first birth, both James and Catriona were 39-years-old and aware of the challenges had they made the decision to delay having a second child.
"I'm in my late thirties so I didn't want to muck around," Catriona told Woman's Day in 2010, while she was pregnant with Charles. "I don't want to be pregnant for the next seven years, and while that baby changing table is out, we may as well put it to good use!"
Despite her public life on television, and having arguably one of the most incredible jobs, Catriona has kept her family life relatively private. But judging from what little fans have seen of the family, they are enjoying the farm life.
