The family initially went to Australia for work, as Nicole was filming Nine Perfect Strangers in Byron Bay.

However, they have since remained there and are staying at their 111-acre farmhouse in New South Wales. The gorgeous property has everything from a swimming pool to tennis courts, and boasts six bedrooms.

The Before I Go to Sleep star said: "We travel together, so we are always together, but never where you are in a house and you can't go to the store, to a restaurant or the movies.

"Staying home, doing school from home and all of those things that everyone has been doing is a completely different life for us."

Her mother Janelle and sister Antonia live nearby, and have also been helping with childcare. "My sister's staying over and my mum's helping; I don't have that help in Nashville so that's been incredible," Nicole explained to the New York Times.

"We never leave the kids, one of us is always there. When Keith went to Nashville and I had to work late nights, I rang Ant and asked her to move in with the girls and she did, and bought along her kids.
