Braith Anasta claims ex-wife Jodi is happy about baby news

Neighbours actress Jodi Gordon (née Anasta) split from her ex-husband in 2015, sharing three-year-old daughter Aleeia.

And despite the former NRL star Braith Anasta making plans to start a family with new girlfriend Rachael Lee, he claims Jodi has been very supportive.

Braith told The Daily Telegraph on Monday: 'Everything’s really smooth, we’ve had no troubles.'

Two weeks ago, Braith and personal trainer Rachael announced they were expecting their first child together.

They both already have children from previous relationships, with Rachael joining Braith and Aleeia with her seven-year-old son Addison.

The FOX League commentator, who retired from rugby league in 2014, told the publication their ex partners have had positive reactions to the news.

'Rachael’s ex-husband and my ex-wife Jodi have been fine. They were the first to congratulate us, they know the dynamic we’ve got with the kids, they’re excited as well, we’ve had no problems whatsoever,' he said.

Braith continued: 'We both have one of our own and now we’ve got a blended family, the four of us live together and we’re going to be adding another one to the clan so we’re really pumped.'

Braith added the hashtags, 'Over the moon' and 'Couldn't be happier'.
