Sam and Phoebe Burgess’ highly-publicised split was the source of countless headlines at the end of last year.
Initially, it was an Instagram photo shared on Christmas Day by Sam’s sister-in-law that sparked rumours of a marriage breakdown, as the 30-year-old was in attendance without his 29-year-old wife.
When Phoebe later changed her Facebook profile photo from one of her and the Rabbitoh’s player at their wedding to a solo picture, the Sydney Morning Herald used it as evidence of the couple’s break up.
A week later, Sam was photographed moving out of their Maroubra home, seeming to confirm the rumours.
All that came just months after a woman claimed a group of NRL players had exposed themselves to her without consent from a verified Facebook account in Sam Burgess’ name.
In September, Sam was cleared of any wrongdoing over the scandal after the NRL completed its investigations.
Amid the tumultuous end to 2018, Phoebe took a notable absence from social media. Until today, the usually frequent poster hadn’t posted anything since December 21, 2018.
However, earlier this afternoon, Phoebe broke her silence with two photos of baby Billy on her story, and a third photo on her feed.
