The Bachelor star Tim Robards reacts as his wife Anna Heinrich signs up for the gruelling new season of SAS Australia – 11 months after giving birth
It was revealed on Sunday that Bachelor star Anna Heinrich had signed up for Channel Seven’s SAS Australia, 11 months after welcoming her first child.
And shortly afterwards, her doting husband Tim Robards reacted to the big news on his Instagram page – and it appears he couldn’t be more proud of his partner.
‘Whatever happens Daddy and Elle are extremely proud, slightly jealous, but also slightly relieved that it’s not us…’ he wrote, referencing their gorgeous daughter.

He sweetly added: ‘So proud of my girl for going ALL IN on this. However she goes it’s been such an incredible journey even to this point.
‘The training we’ve been able to do together, even with Elle in tow, has been an incredibly empowering and belief building journey for Anna by itself, and brought us even closer as a family in lockdown. Winning already.’
The fitness guru continued: ‘I must admit though I have enjoyed ordering her around and shouting “get up and go again!”, but I won’t miss the blows to the head she’s been delivering in our boxing training.’
Other 2022 contestants include retired NRL star Darius Boyd, model Simone Holtznagel as well as Bachelor star Locky Gilbert.
