Kate Ritchie has easily put on the mask of ‘Sally Fletcher’ for twenty years for which two Gold Logie Awards followed to her home. Bidding farewell to twenty years of ‘Home and Away’ attachment, Kate went out with former rugby player, Stuart Webb, and eventually lead a conjugal bliss in 2010. But all isn’t well here.
Last year, the cops issued an Apprehended Violence Order (AVO) against him on the support of Kate for a year. As a result, an ex-NRL player, Stuart Webb, is prohibited from approaching Kate after the intake of alcohol or illicit drugs.
Kate’s husband, Stuart, is also not allowed to stalk or start any physical altercation acts in turn; otherwise, he is bound to charge with severe penance.
The duo has always been subjected to split rumors for ages. At the outset, she was disheartened about the constant split speculation. With the haste of time, the ‘Home and Away’ star learned to cope that some of the relationship don’t follow the blissful path.
“It doesn’t hurt my feelings, not anymore, I think in the old days it did. There’s no point in getting bogged down about what other people think is happening in my life.”
Adding fuel to the rumors, she stepped out in sportswear without the wedding ring on her 42nd birthday. Paparazzi caught Kate in a sporty outfit and noted that she left out her wedding ring as she sipped her coffee in Sydney’s Randwick.
In 2019, Kate moved out of the marital residence following the police’s take on AVO against Stuart Webb. It appeared as if the spouse tried everything to get rid of the ‘troubled couple’ tag for their only daughter, Mae. In the past months, the duo attempted to mend their issues and even celebrated the little girl, Mae’s first day at the school.
As per the insiders, the duo has booked an appointment for resolving their relationship issues. One of the friends of the duo convinced ‘New Idea’ that the ex-NRL player had invested his 100 percent effort in putting up a piece together.
“Stuart has been trying to show Kate that he’s a changed man and is serious about getting his life in order,”
Before his drink-driving offense, where he blew 0.083, they were in all smiles at the red carpets as well as social media. In 2014, the couple celebrated their fourth wedding anniversary, while being comfy in the pajamas. The same year, they stood as an exemplary couple on the red carpet for the TV Week Logies.
Stuart often appeared on the selfies of Kate back in those days. Then, he began vanishing from Katie’s social media feeds that they didn’t share space in the 6th birthday frame of their daughter Mae.
Kate baked up a two-tier yellow iced cake, tucking up the number six candle on the top. She always passes down a tradition of baking cake on Mae’s birthday, which was initiated from the former days of the radio host, Kate.
‘My earliest memory of [the birthday cake book] was flicking through the pages in wonderful birthday anticipation. Something I do with my own daughter now.’
