Speaking to New Idea, the couple – who are now parents to one-year-old daughter Hallie - further explained that buying their new home was the fresh start they needed following their tragic loss.
“We went through a lot with the miscarriage,” Katie explained.
“As that was happening it was like, ‘Ok, now we know exactly what we want’. We knew that we want to have kids and we want to have them now and so we set ourselves up and set up exactly where we needed to be.
“I couldn’t be in the house we were living in anymore so we came out for a drive to Gundaroo which is where I grew up and there just happened to be someone selling a house that we knew and we bought it off the market.”
Alex added: “I was surprised how much it devastated us, we had to change lifestyles, perspectives, everything.
“This house really healed us.”
