Kerri-Anne Kennerley has opened up about moving on following her beloved husband and mother’s deaths.

The 69-year-old television veteran lost her husband John at the age of 78 in February 2019, after a tragic fall in 2016.

He was left paralysed after falling from a balcony while taking photos of Kerri-Anne during a golfing tournament in Coffs Harbour, NSW, in March 2016.

Her mother Grace died in May 2022 and that was the final straw for Kennerley who decided to make a change.

“I think you just need to know it’s time, and it was certainly time. Time for something new,” she told Woman’s Day.

Kennerley sold off all her belongings and moved out of the massive home she shared with John for 23 years.

The house “took over an entire block” and Kennerley has finally settled into an apartment in Sydney’s Double Bay.

She explained the change was a long time coming as she still goes through “waves” of grief and loss.

“It takes a very long time to just go through the waves,” she said.

“It does get ever so slightly easier as the years pass and you start to remember more of the beautiful and fabulous times.”

Despite his passing, Kennerley says she still feels John’s presence around her with his trophies, smoking pipes, and a digger.

When asked about whether the pair spoke about moving on after his passing, Kennerley just replied: “Nope, nope, nope”.
