Model Rachael Finch has revealed she and her husband Michael Miziner get to spend each weekend child free.
The pair who met on the Seven’s Dancing With The Stars, get quality time together because they have a lot of help from their parents.
The former Miss Universe told Sunday Style that her two-year-old daughter Violet stays with Miziner’s mother, Irena, from Friday afternoon until Sunday morning.

“Every weekend (Violet) goes to Mish’s mum’s house, and we get our weekend to ourselves. I think that’s incredibly healthy for the relationship. And on Sunday, when we pick her up, we have 100 per cent energy back,” Finch told Sunday Style magazine.
During the week, Violet stays at home with her father until Finch’s mother, Colleen Zablocki, takes over in the afternoons when he starts teaching his dance classes. On top of that – Miziner’s grandmother is also on hand if the couple need any more help. “She’s just turned 85, and she walks down to our house and takes Violet for a walk,” Finch told Sunday Style magazine.

Finch says having a baby has changed her life. “It was very much career and travel, which still exist, but the priorities have become Violet and family, because you have this little thing that’s dependent on you,” she said. “It’s like heaven in a body, just watching her grow. It changes your pace, your energy, everything. You could have the most difficult day and be totally exhausted, and you walk in and it’s like nothing ever happened.”

The 28-year-old doesn't necessarily want her daughter to follow in her footsteps - she just wants her to be happy.
“I have always thought that as long as she is nurtured and loved, that will give her the confidence for anything,” she says.
She told Sunday Style she wanted to give Violet a "safe, beautiful, nurturing, loving environment, so she has that foundation to forge ahead in life".
“It doesn’t mean being successful or not, it’s more about being emotionally stable,” she said.
