Ouch! Phoebe Burgess appeared to take a thinly veiled swipe at ex-husband Sam on Tuesday as she wished her father a happy birthday and thanked him for ‘helping to raise’ her children 

‘Happy birthday to our Mitchy boy,’ her post began. 

‘We would be lost without your strength, support, integrity and guidance that shape the values of this family unit.’

She added: ‘Not many would sacrifice their later years to help raise tiny, messy, noisy, needy, demanding, constant children all over again… but here we are.

‘Thank you, dad.’

Sam and Phoebe married in 2015, before splitting for good in October 2019.

They share custody of two young children, daughter Poppy, four, and son Billy, two. 

Last week, Phoebe appeared on the No Filter podcast where she opened up about her split with the former Rabbitohs star. 

She said she has a lot of ‘baggage’ from the break-up and admitted she still lives at home with her parents in Bowral.

Phoebe also revealed she was ‘f**king furious’ after learning her ex had traces of cocaine in his system while on his way to pick up their children earlier this year.  

The retired sports star, 32, avoided a conviction after pleading guilty to three charges in May following a February 22 police traffic stop where he tested positive for the drug.

Phoebe said it ‘broke a lot of trust in someone who is the father of my children’.

‘That’s the first time I have ever been f**king furious,’ she told host Mia Freedman. ‘I was really angry. This was something I had absolutely no ability to control…’

‘I was furious. I was furious at the people around him. I didn’t understand how someone could get into that position. 

‘The first thing I said is, “Who the f**k is looking after him? What is going on?”‘  

Sam had confessed to several indiscretions during his grilling on reality show SAS Australia this year, including that he’d slept with a woman from Melbourne in 2017 behind Phoebe’s back.

‘I embarrassed my wife. I’d had an affair with a girl, a woman in Melbourne. That’s true,’ he said.

‘I turned to drinking, taking drugs – I thought I could manage that. Then got pulled [up on a] DUI with drugs in my system, which was all over the press again, which stopped me seeing my kids again. I just checked myself into rehab.’
