& # 39; Many reactions were thrown at me & # 39 ;: Karl Stefanovic & # 39; s ex-wife Cassandra Thorburn reveals that she was embarrassed because she was a mother who stayed home
Karl Stefanovic's ex-wife, Cassandra Thorburn, revealed that she felt embarrassed when she left the workplace to stay at her mother's house.
The 47-year-old ex-journalist felt that some of her colleagues condemned her when she stopped her career to raise her children: Jackson, River and Ava.
& # 39; I stayed home for a long time and certainly many reactions were thrown at me & # 39 ;, Kassandra said during a performance Studio 10 on Friday.
& # 39; Many reactions were thrown at me & # 39 ;: Karl Stefanovic & # 39; s ex-wife Cassandra Thorburn revealed that she was embarrassed because she was a mother who stayed home
& # 39; There is a stigma that you stay at home with your baby for a long time, & # 39; she added.
Kassandra believed that some people believed she was taking a break simply because & # 39; she could & # 39 ;.
& # 39; I wanted 12 months off [after Jackson was born] but I needed the money so I had to go back to work & # 39 ;, she went on.
& # 39; Childcare is extremely expensive. In some scenarios it's just not feasible. & # 39;
Hostility: & # 39; I stayed at home for a long time and many responses were certainly thrown at me & # 39 ;, said Cassandra in Studio 10. Shown with her ex-husband Karl Stefanovic in 2012
Kassandra went further: & # 39; Decisions are made in families for the improvement of families and there should be no criticism of working mothers or mothers staying at home.
& # 39; I regularly presented myself for the school canteen and the school uniform store. I did those things because I could, because I made the decision to stay home and I made that decision for my family. & # 39;
Kassandra also argued that paternity leave is not recognized correctly in the workplace, but is also important.
Judgment: Kassandra believed that some people thought she was taking a break simply because & # 39; she could & # 39;
& # 39; If you are in a workplace and you have a child and people say, "How long are you going to start?", Do you ever tell men that? & # 39; she asked.
& # 39; We don't talk like that and we should. & # 39;
Cassandra was divorced in mid-2016 from Karl Stefanovic, the former presenter of Channel Nine & # 39; s Today.
Five months after their presentation, he started dating designer Jasmine Yarbrough. They married in Mexico on December 8, 2018.
