Jess Redden has confessed that she feels “a bit anxious” about returning home to Ireland this week.

The 27-year-old made the move to Perth in January with her fiancé Rob Kearney after he ended his 15-year career with Leinster Rugby to sign with Australian rugby union side Western Force.

The couple got engaged in 2019 with a romantic New York proposal and were hoping to get married in June 2021 before the pandemic hit.

But while Rob is set to stay in Perth for a bit longer, Jess is preparing to return home to finish her pharmacy degree.

The fitness fanatic took to her Instagram stories to share her feelings about finally moving back home, saying: “Last weekend in my home away from home.

“Definitely grown so much as a person over the last five months and finding out what works for me to keep my mind a safe place.

“Trying to just live in the moment and not to stress or become fixated with the past and equally not worrying about the future.”

Jess told her followers that she was feeling “anxious” about returning to Ireland but said that being in Australia helped her to control her anxiety.

“Cannot believe it is my last weekend in Perth,” the Irish influencer said.

“I woke up this morning and I was just really tired; I haven't been sleeping that well this week because I just feel a bit anxious about going home.

“But I feel another benefit of this trip is that I'm definitely learning to deal with my anxiety so much better.

“Before, I think I just tried to push it all away and pretend it wasn't happening, but of course sooner or later it all just bubbles up and then you become really overwhelmed.

“But this morning I tried doing my headspace meditation and that didn't really relax me, I tried reading and that didn't really relax me.

“Then I got out, got some fresh air and got some food and I'm definitely feeling a bit better now,” she explained.
