Jodi Anasta sparked fears for her welfare last week after Neighbours executives told her to take ‘a three-week break’ from the show due to ‘exhaustion’.
Soon after the news broke, her ex-husband Braith Anasta and his girlfriend Rachael Lee were seen enjoying a fun family night at home.
In a series of videos shared to Rachael’s Instagram stories on Wednesday, the former athlete, 37, who split with Jodi in December 2015, enjoyed a cosy dinner with his ladylove and their beaming brood.
The couple were seen sharing a joyful meal with their one-year-old baby girl, Gigi, Rachael’s son, Addison, 11, from a previous marriage and Braith and Jodi’s five-year-old daughter, Aleeia.
Meanwhile, Braith’s ex-wife Jodi is currently taking ‘a three-week break’ from Neighbours due to ‘exhaustion’.

Jodi’s busy schedule and duties as a single mother to her daughter Aleeia have apparently led to a series of worrying ‘meltdowns’.
‘She’s really emotional and has walked off set crying a number of times just over little things and out of frustration,’ a source claimed, adding that the cast and crew have been worried about Jodi for ‘weeks’.
‘I really do believe she’s going through a bit of a personal crisis at the moment’, the insider added.
The magazine also claimed that Jodi, who has played Elly Conway on Neighbours for three years, has been struggling to come to terms with the recent stagnation of her acting career.
‘Jodi thought getting the role on Neighbours would lead to a resurgence in her career and perhaps be a springboard into getting work in movies, but that hasn’t happened,’ a friend allegedly said.
Meanwhile, Woman’s Day claimed that Jodi is also feeling lonely following a string of failed romances.
It comes after Jodi’s manager Sean Anderson claimed that his client’s sudden hiatus from Neighbours was prompted by ‘exhaustion’.
