Model Steph Claire Smith breaks down in tears as she reveals she’s won’t be celebrating Christmas with her family as she has to quarantine after visiting Sydney’s northern beaches
Fitness model Steph Claire Smith broke down in tears as she revealed she won’t be celebrating Christmas with her family this year.
The 25-year-old shared an image of herself in tears to Instagram on Friday and revealed she’s currently quarantining in Melbourne with her husband Josh Miller after visiting Sydney’s northern beaches last week.
She wrote: ‘Just our luck hey. Sending love to everyone else in similar positions… Self quarantining for the next 14 days means no Christmas with family.’

She continued: ‘After the year we’ve had, this is just the rotten cherry on top. Going to cry when I need to, scream when I want to… and lift myself up whenever I can.’
‘Joshy and I are just grateful to have a home to quarantine in, and that we have each other. Thinking of everyone who is now going to be alone this Christmas.’
Steph, who is pregnant with her first child, also revealed she and Josh both tested negative for coronavirus.
‘Josh and I both received our results and we’re both fine, no Covid detected. But we still have to quarantine here in VIC – that’s just the way it is,’ she wrote.

‘We keep looking on the bright side. We have each other, we’re quarantining at home and we recently have been able to see friends and family anyway since the lockdown stopped in Melbourne,’ she said.
This comes as NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian introduced strict Covid-19 restrictions ‘to save Christmas’.
Hundreds of thousands of residents on the Northern Beaches have been ordered to stay at home from 5pm Saturday while millions more in Greater Sydney have been urged to abandon non-essential activities.

The Northern Beaches outbreak has now climbed by 23 cases, which includes 10 from Friday, with testing on Saturday revealing 21 of those are directly linked to the Avalon cluster.
The mystery outbreak was identified on Wednesday afternoon when a couple in their 60s and 70s tested positive after having visited nine venues across the northern beaches instead of self-isolating while awaiting their results.
Victoria, Queensland, South Australia, Tasmania, the Northern Territory and the ACT have all banned anyone who visited the Northern Beaches from December 11 from entering their state or territory.
