In an in-depth interview with Vogue Australia, she said she was “satisfied” being a single mother and joked that she wouldn’t have the most attractive Tinder profile.
‘What am I going to put on my Tinder profile? ”Sleeps in the same bed as his daughter. Lives with his parents. Huge public baggage!” she laughed.

“I don’t know why, but people seem to want me to enter a new phase, but I’m happy here at the moment.”
Phoebe added that she would never go back to using her maiden name Hooke because to her “Phoebe Hooke no longer exists”.
“I feel like I’m going through fire. I’m a different person now. I can’t go back,” she said.
Phoebe shares son Billy, three, and daughter Poppy, five, with Sam.
The couple separated for the second time in October 2019, just months after rekindling their marriage.
Phoebe partly blamed the breakdown of their marriage on the NRL, saying clubs had done little to help her then-husband.
“He hasn’t been taken care of,” Phoebe told The Weekend Australian.

“He wasn’t protected in the right way, in the way that could have – not saved our marriage, but it could have led to real rehabilitation, to a real sense of responsibility, to proprietary behavior, to wanting to change what behavior.”
Phoebe said she tried to show courage in difficult times, but claims to have been teased and teased while pregnant with her second child Billy and watching Sam play at Stadium Australia.
“I was heckled by the crowd, drunk people asking if I wanted to FaceTime and wondering where my husband was and, you know, was that his baby? It was degrading and humiliating,” she said.
Sam later admitted his infidelity, which happened while captaining England in the Rugby League World Cup, during a confessional in the final season of the reality show , SAS Australia.
“I don’t think I’ve been the best husband at times. I’ve embarrassed my wife. I had an affair with a girl, a woman in Melbourne. It’s true,” he said tearfully.
“I was on tour and it unfortunately happened. What would have been…it would have been a tough place for Phoebe.’
While pregnant with their son Billy in late 2018, Phoebe said she had multiple tests for sexually transmitted infections as a result of Sam cheating.
She claimed that during the pregnancy she also suffered from Sam’s “substance-induced screaming rages”.
In October, police cleared Sam of any wrongdoing after a year-long investigation sparked by allegations of domestic abuse made by Phoebe.
The allegations were originally published in The Australian newspaper and vehemently denied by Burgess at the time.
