Michael Klim on sharing children with Lindy

He’s the Australian Olympic swimming champion who shares three children, Stella, 11,  Frankie, six, and Rocco, nine, with ex-wife Lindy.

And Michael Klim, 40, has revealed that keeping things consistent for his kids has proven to be the key to their happiness.

Appearing on the Morning Show on Tuesday, the six-time Olympic medalist admitted that while the protracted family was still in a transition phase, it was a case of ‘so far, so good.’

‘So far so good’: Michael Klim reveals that sharing custody of his children Rocco, Frankie and Stella with ex-Lindy has been running ‘like clockwork’ since their separation last year

‘My priority is just keeping it consistent for the kids,’ Michael told hosts Larry Emdur  and Sarah Cumming.

He added that he felt it was important to continue to provide structure for his brood.

‘The kids know exactly that I pick them up every second Friday from school, I have them for a week – it’s like clockwork.’

‘They know exactly where they’re going to be, what their lunchbox is going to look like. So far, so good. Obviously it’s a transition phase in everybody’s lives, but the kids seem really happy, which is the priority.’

Michael married Lindy in April 2006 before parting ways in February 2016.

Both have since moved on – Michael with partner Desiree Deravi and Lindy with British businessman Adam Ellis, with whom she is expecting her fourth child.

The pair’s separation has not been without acrimony, with Michael recently calling Lindy out for setting up a fake Instagram account, under the name Jane Cross, with which to troll Desiree.

In a selfie featuring Desiree, Stella and Frankie, ‘Jane Cross’ left nasty comments.

Michael responded to, saying: ‘@j_cross1 we know it’s you @lindyklim so just stop with the trolling it’s pathetic you’re a grown women (sic) and stop being so disrespectful.’
