Partner: Josh McGuire Brisbane Broncos

Profession: Mum of two, Maiya, 2 and Maxon 3 and a half months.

When and how did you meet? We met in 2013, when a girlfriend took over a room Josh was renting – we were practically inseparable ever since.

Who inspires you? My mum is by far the most caring, humble woman I have ever met. She would do anything for anyone.

Best thing about being a mum? Watching them form their own little personalities.

How has becoming a parent changed you? It has given me a purpose. I have to be the best version of myself as they are constantly learning and watching everything you do.

Biggest challenge? Early mornings, not having much time to myself.

How do you juggle everything? Help from family and a good routine. Don’t sweat the small stuff!

Outside of Mum life what are your aspirations? I would love to one day do something with photography, it’s a huge hobby of mine so it would be amazing to do it for a living!

What is your greatest achievement? My two children by far.

Describe your style. Plain, casual, classic.

Everyday essentials? Sunnies, phone, coffee, wallet, baby bag, camera.

Your fave beauty product? Alpha-H Liquid Gold.

Favorite holiday destination? Hayman Island. We went there for our honeymoon (although I was almost asked to leave for taking photos of Katy Perry!).

How do you treat yourself? Date nights, breakfasts out & a trip to the hairdressers.

Your biggest fear? Big bodies of water and sharks. Anything to do with the ocean really.

Fave instagrammer? Tash Dignum (she would probably think I’m the biggest stalker) but whenever I need a bit of a ‘lift me up’ I check out her page, she has the most positive outlook on life!

What advice would you give to your younger self? Be yourself, don’t change for anyone. Don’t ever follow crowds.

What's on your bucket list? Have always wanted to go to the Greek Islands.

Quote/philosophy that you live by? Everything happens for a reason.

Best thing about Josh playing NRL? The people you meet, travel and lifestyle. Life is busy but I love it!

Worst? He is away a lot of the time, and the injuries are always a worry.

What's his best attribute? Josh is so generous, and very caring. He has a heart of gold.

If you had to pick another profession for Josh what and why? Restaurant owner, he’s a total socialite and loves his food!

A talent Josh has outside of football? Motorbike riding.

Whats one thing people wouldn't know about you/Josh? He’s a total softy and shows his emotions, I am the complete opposite.

Any game day rituals that you partake in? Josh has to see a movie, and I join if I can.

What do you do during the off-season? Go to Yeppoon to visit my family and friends, hopefully an overseas trip this year.

Favourite time within the footy season? We are only just new on the scene but I really enjoy the origin period, its great to travel and spend some time with the girls.

What should every woman try at least once in her life? A trip to a day spa.

If you had to choose another team for Josh to play for other than the Broncos which team would that be and why? Sydney Roosters, I would love to live on the beach.

Where do you see yourself in five years time? Living a happy, successful life and watching our kids grow.
