It was a sad day for supermodel Elle Macpherson yesterday.
The hottie returned to Australia to take part in Virgin Blue’s catwalk for their new pilot’s uniform.
However, it seems she was a bit distraught by the fact that her father had surgery to treat prostate cancer just two weeks earlier.
Elle emotionally told the crowd while on the verge of tears:
“It's wonderful to be home. I miss my family… I'm going to get a bit emotional… particularly (for) my dad, who is a bit unwell."
But her dad, Peter Gow, says he’s doing just fine after surgery and attributes her emotional day to jet lag.
Reveals her dad:
"I have been a bit unwell. I'm sorry Elle was upset. She is probably a bit tired after travelling a long way. We love each other very much and I draw incredible strength from my children.
I'm on the way back. They are confident they got it all. It has been a bit of a shock actually."
We blame part of it on jet lag and part on being a concerned child. There’s no shame in worrying about her dad after surgery.
Glad to hear he’s doing well!
