So­nia Kruger & David Camp­bell

The Australian Women's Weekly - - Celebration -

Along with the sound of Christ­mas pa­per rip­ping and cham­pagne corks pop­ping, there’s a con­stant stream of mu­sic when David Camp­bell and So­nia Kruger cel­e­brate the hol­i­days with their re­spec­tive fam­i­lies.

For So­nia, 53, there’s just one tune she lis­tens out for. “Bing Crosby singing White

Christ­mas al­ways brings me un­done be­cause that was my fa­ther’s favourite song,” she says. “When­ever I hear that song I send him love.”

Both So­nia, mum to two-year old Mag­gie, and David, dad to Leo, 8, and twins Billy and Betty, 2, will co-host Nine’s an­nual Car­ols by Can­dle­light in Mel­bourne on Christ­mas Eve be­fore trav­el­ling back to Syd­ney to wake up in their own beds on the big day.

“The prob­lem is I prob­a­bly won’t get home un­til about 3am and Mag­gie will al­ready be up with ex­cite­ment,” laughs So­nia. “I’m go­ing to be op­er­at­ing on not a lot of sleep but plenty of Christ­mas joy.”

“I love that mo­ment in the morn­ing when you see the magic in the kids’ eyes when they go, ‘That’s what I asked Santa for’,” adds David. “I feel upset al­ready that that might end one day.”
