Despite looking upbeat in the snap, Anthony previously revealed that his teenage years were some of the hardest in his life.
‘I mean, boarding school – things happen there which I won’t go into, but they were too much for a young teenager to cope with by yourself,’ he told Ahn.
‘You’re away from your parents and as years rolled on I just started feeling bad about myself.

He added: ‘You feel like you shouldn’t be on the earth, basically. You’re a waste of time … You’re in a crowd with people and you feel like you’re the only person who feels like that. (You think) they don’t understand me – no one gets to me.’
With professional help and the support of his loved ones, Anthony was able to find peace and is now in a much better place.
He has been happily married to former dancer Michaela Patisteas for 15 years and they share three children Lucia, 14, Marie, 12, and Antonio, 11.
