In Shane Warne’s last interview, “Life’s great, at the end of the day”

In a rare and candid interview almost a year ago, Shane Warne spoke to A Current Affair reporter Seb Costello in one of his final TV interviews.

He opened up about the joys of parenthood and the pressure his international cricket career had on his children, Brooke, Jackson and Summer.

He also spoke of finally being settled and making up for lost time.

“It hasn’t been easy. Unfortunately I wasn’t a nine-to-five dad who would come home every night. I would do months away, months on end,” Warne revealed to Seb Costello on A Current Affair.

“That’s part of the sacrifices, and one of the biggest sacrifices you make, is that you’re away from your family for long period of time and that’s not easy.”

But things had changed for the better for the “Spin King”.

In April last year, Warne had revealed he’d been living in his hometown of Melbourne since October 2020, due to the pandemic.

“We know the sad and the bad things about COVID, but you’ve got to look at the positives out of it,” he said.

At the time, Warne said people had been given the chance to “take a step back” from rushing around to reassess “how we want to live our lives” during the pandemic.

And since retiring from cricket, Warne had dived into his businesses and revealed he was poised to release his own medical cannabis oil.

It had been no secret that it had been a journey for Warne.

Fame had brought with it pressure and temptations.

But the legendary Australian bowler said he didn’t regret his life in the limelight as it made him who he was.

“Life’s great, at the end of the day, my children are great, my business life’s great and I’m happy,” he said.
