Nadia tell us a little about what makes your relationship with your mum Sharon so unique & special?
I don’t really have a “mum”, rather – I’ve got a big sister, and it’s been that way for as long as I can remember. We’re buddies, we do everything together. I’m very lucky! Apart from being a truly remarkable Mother and supporting me to no end, Shaz is a demon on the dance floor and totally kicks my butt at wrestling (yes, like most “sisters’ ‘ we’ve may or may not have wrestled a few times! haha)
Sharon, can you share with us what motherhood means to you?
It means I have a very special “little mate” named Nadia, someone to share all our experiences in life with, the good and the bad! True she is like a sister (which I didn’t have) we laugh, we cry and we party together! Nadia is an incredible daughter even though we don’t always agree on everything!
You are both from a sporting background, Nadia has Sharon’s love for Sports and Fitness shaped who you are?
Most certainly! It’s what our dinner table conversations were about for most of my childhood – SPORT! A special mention goes out to my Dad Russell Fairfax, who was a Rooster and played for Australia in the Wallabies. Our family’s love for sport has always kept us bonded.
