Sinead Kennedy has opened up about her long distance relationship, sharing her hopes that husband Conor will be able to move home soon.
Conor is a naval officer currently seconded to the European Defence Agency in Brussels, meaning the pair are separated for most of the year.
But Sinead is looking forward to his return home. Telling the Irish Mirror, that Conor will return home someday, saying: “He will be, oh god yeah. Like he’s only on secondment. He’ll be back and he’ll settle back into Cork.”
As for if the TV presenter finds it tough, Sinead shared how its normal for them, meaning they’re very used to long-distance.
As she explained: “We’re so used to it. I think maybe if it was new to us, then maybe. But we just snap back naturally.”
“Even before he was abroad, he was in Cork and I was in Dublin…..so because it’s always been a thing, it’s not a thing.”
Although things are a bit more complicated since they welcomed their daughter Indy. Saying: “We’re over and back and over and back.”
“It’s his job. But do you know what, while it’s harder because she’s here, it’s what it’s always been – it is just different when you’ve a baby so like nothing changed, but everything changed.”
While most of the time they are apart, Sinead did spend this summer in Brussels, which she absolutely loved.
Telling Magazine+: “It’s funny, it’s not one of those places that I was ever like, ‘I want to get to Belgium tomorrow’, but oh my god, what a fabulous country. It’s just really chilled.”
“It was nice to be able to spend time as a three, which is rare at the moment, unfortunately — but that’s just our lives and that’s work and it’s for a finite amount of time, which is a relief.”
