Outside of court, a tearful Michelle said: ‘I would like to take this opportunity to express my deep remorse, shame and humiliation [over] this incident and extreme lack of judgment.

“I want to apologize to my family, friends and community for this gross error of judgment and the consequences of these actions will haunt me forever.”

The emotional interview in Good Weekend comes weeks after Michelle speaks The Daily Telegraph about being a single mother to Axel.

‘You have to be pretty well organized and be able to think a lot ahead with regard to how you are going to plan things like the school holidays, camps … it’s hard, but there’s so much joy, ”she said.

Michelle said that Axel goes “everywhere” with her, also trying to teach him important values.
