It comes after Candice spoke about her struggles raising three children alone while her husband spends most of the year playing cricket overseas. 

‘Being a mum of three is extremely tough but very rewarding, and being able to work [as a commentator] and be back on the beach is going to be one of those dream jobs,’ she told Woman’s Day on Monday.

‘When you know the sport, love it and know the competitors, I don’t see it as work; I see it as a great day at the beach,’ she added.

The former Ironwoman, who is also training to compete in the 2022 Summer of Surf series, was asked whether she hopes her daughters, Ivy, six, Indi, four, and Isla, two, will become professional athletes like their parents.

‘I don’t think they will, but you never know,’ she replied. 

‘They do love going to the beach and paddling boards. Recently I took Ivy out on a board and she loved that, but I think I would be petrified seeing my daughter go out in the ocean!’

Candice insisted she will support her children no matter what profession they decide to pursue. 

David is currently at home in Sydney competing in the Ashes series.  

It comes weeks after the SAS Australia star admitted to crying in her car from the stress and loneliness while David was away playing cricket overseas.

Candice made the heartbreaking admission on Nova’s Not Another Parenting Podcast in December.  

‘It has been a challenge, and you think as a mum, as a wife, as anyone, you’re invincible. But we all have our weaknesses, our moments,’ she said.

‘And there’s been time where… I’ve been driving and I just break down into tears. Or my kids are in the back screaming. I’m just like, “When is this going to end?”‘

Candice revealed her husband is ‘generally away 300 days of the year’ and that the couple had spent only three months together out of the last 14. 

‘It’s difficult because he’s your husband and your best friend. And that’s the person who you turn to normally,’ she continued.
