Barry Du Bois celebrates happy news


The Living Room’s Barry Du Bois is celebrating a huge milestone this week.

The 59-year-old marked his 20th anniversary with wife Leonie Tobler today.

Barry and Leonie first met in Bondi in 1992 and tied the knot in 1999.

Together they share 6-year-old twins Arabella and Bennett (who they welcomed via surrogacy in 2012).

The lifestyle expert took to Instagram earlier today to commemorate the occasion.

Barry shared a photo of himself sitting with his wife as they shared wide smiles.

In the caption, he wrote a beautiful message to Leonie:

“Always there and always true
Unwavering in sacrifice
All our lives richer thanks to you
Happy anniversary to the most caring and loving mother, wife and friend anyone could have.
I am blessed and thankful everyday.
20 years today.”

The Living Room’s Kyal and Kara commented on the post congratulating the couple on their anniversary, along with hundreds of Barry’s Instagram followers.

Last month, Barry opened up about his hopes for his children as he faces the reality of living with Plasmacytoma Myeloma – a cancer of the immune system which he says is “not curable.”

The TV host told Australian Men’s Health that he is thinking of his own father, and how he remembers him, as he navigates the difficult path ahead, for both himself and Arabella and Bennett.

“What I have is not curable. But I’m in a great place. I’m as good as someone can be who has multiple myeloma,’ he told the magazine.

“What I want is for my children to be able to tell their children one day that their dad was a powerful man.”
