Guy Sebastian has come a long way since winning Australian Idol back in 2003. 

As the star prepares to embark on his first stadium tour of Australia next February, and his career takes off internationally, Guy has spoken about his struggle to strike a balance between work and his young family.

The Like A Drum singer has been with his partner Jules for 14 years, and the couple have two gorgeous sons Hudson, 2, and Archer, 5-months.

Speaking about the demands of his career, Guy revealed “I think it is the hardest it has ever been because of parenthood. Getting on a plane is torture.”

“I look at all the moments I thought were tough to now, and it was nothing” he said.

The star is currently in California working on his new album, but is very much missing his family in Australia, posting on social media:

“Missing my boys on Father’s Day”

For the last few months, Guy was on Daddy duty while Jules filmed the Channel Seven series Bringing Sexy Back, leaving recording to be completed between midnight and dawn.

Despite their hectic schedules, Guy’s wife of 6 years is never far from his mind, with the star posting on Instagram:

Yo @julessebastian is hanging out at her stall at@beautifulyouaustralia go and say hi and tell her I miss her:-)”

  • he is so down to earth


  • What an amazing job they did supporting each other through patent hood and careers


  • I could not imagine having ‘daddy’ work away from home for so long but I guess his situation is not unlike that of many fly-in-fly-out families.


  • I love Guy! He’s such a wonderful person. Good on him for having such a great family.


  • It is hard for any parent to have to leave his/her family behind, especially for work commitments.
    I am glad he was home when his wife was working and didn’t put his career first.


  • Beautiful man and singer. Watching him perform in concert was an absolute treat. One of the best concerts I have been too!


  • it is hard, working away from home when the kids are so little but lots of families are in the same suitation. When daddy gets back home, he is sooo welcomed!


  • Guy seems like such a genuine person and has a lovely famiily.


  • Those babies are so adorable! bless them


  • How cute are his kids!


  • The Sebastian Family really are beautiful, both inside and out.


  • I think a lot of people under estimate how hard it is for famous people to have to leave their family at home.
