Brisbane radio host Kip Wightman broke down in tears as he discussed sharing custody of his four-year-old son Rafael with ex-wife Amber.
He revealed on KIIS’s Robin, Terry & Kip breakfast show that he was left heartbroken when his son asked him why he and Amber didn’t live together like his friend’s parents.
“The worst thing that happened on Sunday was when I picked him up and we were going to a family barbecue and he said ‘Dad, I know someone named Charlie from daycare,’ he explained.
Rafael then said, “Dad, you know, Charlie has a mom and a dad. And they are in the same house. They live together.’
“And sometimes they come and get it together…I want that.”
