Everyone thinks we’re divorced, but we’re not, ‘It’s no big deal interviewing him because we’re friends.”

Likewise, Nick, who is now living with journalist Christa D’Souza spoke to Sebastian-

“I don’t think it’s anyone else’s business why we’ve taken the decision to stay married after all this time. Maybe people think it’s weird. We have our reasons. It suits us. We are civilized people.”

In one of the interviews with Telegraph, Anneka revealed the situation when she was separated with her husband. She said-

“We will get around to divorcing. Most people get divorced because they are always arguing about money. When Nick and I split up, I was the breadwinner; I was paying the school fees. He had a good job so money was never discussed, therefore what is there to argue about? We will do it one day, but God knows when.”

Nick also parent two kids from his long-time partner Christa D’Souza.
