Clementine McVeigh has travelled the world modelling, while stealing the heart of Sydney Swan star, Jarrad McVeigh. Now with her daughter Lolita in tow, Clementine juggles motherhood and career. Surrounded by the beautiful and iconic setting of Bondi Beach, we chatted to Clementine about how raising her daughter in Bondi stacks up against her own childhood in Auckland, New Zealand and Hanoi, Vietnam.
Tell us a little about yourself and your background.
I was born in New Zealand, and spent many years growing up in Hanoi Vietnam where I attended a French school. I absolutely loved every minute of it. I look at Vietnam as my second home, and I feel very lucky to have had that experience in my life, it definitely shaped who I am today. At the age of 16 I travelled the world modelling and moved to Sydney in the year 2000 and made it my base to travel back and forth, now I call Sydney my home. I met my darling husband, Jarrad in 2005, got married in 2010 and then had our two gorgeous girls. We sadly lost our first daughter Luella to a heart condition; she was one month old when she passed. We were then blessed with our gorgeous Lolita, life is amazing and we appreciate everything we have.
