David and his wife, Libby, were joined at Sydney Airport by their children and grandchildren as they greeted Brianna and her kids, Jax, Teddy and baby Ella.
Kochie wrote at the time: ‘When Poppy met Ella. Eight months ago, Ella was born in Perth.’
‘Last night she came home for Christmas with Brie, Jax and Teddy,’ he said, adding that his son-in-law CJ would be joining the rest of the family in the coming days.
‘And just like the movie it was love at first sight,’ he concluded.
David shares four adult children with wife Libby.
The couple met when they were just kids and have been together ever since.
‘Lib was a 20-year-old nurse. Our friend Judy decided to have a party, and that’s where we met back in 1977,’ Kochie told New Idea magazine in June.
Now, party of seven! Kochie relishes his role as a grandfather. Here with wife, Libby, and four of their grandchildren. Here: Sydney, 2016
