Hamish Blake is spending ‘a few weeks’ separated from his Sydney-based wife Zoë Foster Blake and their two children to film Lego Masters in Melbourne
Comedian Hamish Blake, 38, and his millionaire beauty guru wife Zoë Foster Blake, 40, recently relocated from Melbourne to Sydney.
The couple and their two young children – son Sonny, six, and daughter Rudy, three – moved into a $9million home in the upmarket suburb of Vaucluse in late December.
However, now Hamish has detailed how he has become separated from his family due to filming commitments in Melbourne.

‘My family moved to Sydney after Xmas however I’ve had to stay behind in Melbourne for a few weeks to finish shooting LEGO Masters S3 (which is coming up a treat BTW),’ Hamish began captioning a post on Instagram.
Hamish shared a few screen grabs from a FaceTime call with his young daughter, adding that he would ‘be home soon’.
‘To keep me company for our time apart, my daughter left me her little bunny. Sometimes I talk to her on the phone (pic 1), sometimes Little Bun does (pic 2). It’s hard to tell who she misses more,’ the funnyman joked.

Before the family’s big move, Hamish did suggest it was likely he would be travelling back to Melbourne ‘a lot’ for different media opportunities and commitments.
‘I will of course still be podcasting with Ando [Andy Lee] in 2021, and I have several half full coffee loyalty cards I’m not giving up on, so I’m also tipping I’ll be back to Melbourne a lot,’ he noted.
‘For a long time I have known that stealing my wife from Sydney would mean one day we’d venture there to live for a while,’ wrote the Lego Masters host.
‘The loose plan is for a few years, but however long it’s for, we’re excited for this adventure with our little family.’
Money moves: Zoë and husband Hamish spent $8.925 million on a property in the upmarket suburb of Vaucluse just before Christmas and moved into the home in late December
‘We’re excited for this adventure with our little family’: Hamish said the loose plan was for the family to reside in Sydney for ‘a few years’ as he will always see Melbourne as his true home
Going strong: The couple celebrated their eighth wedding anniversary in November
The couple, who wed in 2012, bought their new $9million Vaucluse home shortly after Zoë debuted on the Young Rich List in November 2020.
Zoë founded Go-To six years ago, and now has an estimated net worth of $36million after her skincare company enjoyed a boom in sales during the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Blake family’s five-bedroom, six-bathroom estate sits on 885 square metres and features two sets of garages.
While the four-level home does not have ocean views, it is considered architecturally noteworthy and was featured on Grand Designs Australia in 2013.
Wins: The move comes after Zoë made her debut on Australia’s 2020 Young Rich List, being worth an estimated $36million after her skincare company Go-To enjoyed a boom in sales during the COVID-19 pandemic
