It was an emotional Friday for Oliver Curtis, who was released from Cooma Correctional Centre to his two children this morning.
According to reports by the Sydney Morning Herald, Pixie, 5 and Hunter, 3 could be heard screaming "Daddy! Daddy!" as he made his way onto a private jet at a nearby airport. The pair have not seen their father since he was sentenced a year ago.
Curtis was released from the prison in Southern NSW at about 8.40am today, looking startled as he the gate was opened to reveal about 30 members of the cold and hungry media.
The investment banker was jailed for a year after an insider trading scandal. And after being escorted out of the prison gates by personal security, quickly ushered into a chauffeur-driven black Range Rover.
Press were expecting Curtis to make a short statement to the media, but after his surprise at the numbers, he opted to walk straight to the car.
That didn't stop the media from surrounding him however, asking him how it felt to be free, as well as the waves his wife Roxy has been making in the media during his absence. Earlier this year, pictures surfaced of Jacenko kissing her former boyfriend Nail Gazal. Curtis chose not to comment.
SMH also reported that Curtis' Range Rover headed straight for the nearby Cooma-Snowy Mountains Airport, where a small jet was waiting with Jacenko, Pixie and Hunter all on board. The plane took off about 9.15am straight back to Sydney.
Upon landing, The Daily Mail reports that a car took the family to their apartment in North Bondi for a homecoming party. Colourful balloons were spotted earlier in the morning with messages from the children reading: "Welcome home Daddy, love Pix and Hunty."
Adressing a seminar in Melbourne, Jacenko revealed that Pixie, the toddler with over a thousand followers on Instagram, had a calendar in her room that she had been crossing off the days on until her father's return.
"[Pixie is] marking off the days and now we're down to however many sleeps ... she can count now she goes to school," Jacenko said.
The children believed their father spent the past year on business in China.
Curtis was jailed in 2016 for his role in an insider trading conspiracy in which him and former school friend John Hartman netted around $1.4 million. The duo spent their earnings on luxury items, such as cars, motorbikes, ski and casino trips.
