As a mum-of-four, model and businesswoman, Lindy Rama-Ellis, 40, has plenty to keep her busy. Recently tying the knot in Tuscany, Italy, with her property-developer husband Adam Ellis, the Balinese princess seems to have it all.
How has this year been for you?
Somebody said to me the other day that I’ve managed to get divorced, have a baby, get married, launch a new business career and live in between Bali and Australia. I quite like chaos – that’s why I had so many kids!
What have you learnt about yourself?
I think that going through divorce is a difficult, traumatic experience, so to be able to come through that and have this new life on the other side is really encouraging. If today is a bad day, tomorrow will be better.
How is your daughter Goldie going?
She’s a dream baby, but she’s not sleeping through the night. To be honest, having her with the other children is the most incredible experience – seeing their relationships evolve with each other.
How are you finding co-parenting?
It’s always learning. It is extremely difficult. I definitely know often Frankie will say, “Mummy, why do I have to go to this house and that house and this?” and it’s very confusing and I just have to tell her, “Frankie, you have so many people that love you.” It is a daily challenge and it is something we have to continue working on.
How does your husband support you?
I’m lucky enough that I met Adam six weeks after my break-up. He has been an incredible support and he’s just got this way of thinking that is so calm. Without him, I don’t know where I would be.
