Big in Italy! Megan Gale reveals she will be teaching her two young children to speak Italian after she became an overnight celebrity in the Mediterranean nation
She spent many years modelling in Italy where she became a household name.
And on Friday, Australian stunner Megan Gale revealed she is teaching her two young children how to speak Italian.
The 43-year-old was asked by a fan on her Instagram Story on Friday, if she spoke Italian to son River, four, and daughter, Rosie, one.
'With River yes a little bit,' she replied and added, 'Rosie is still a bit young but I will try and teach her too.'
Megan now enjoys a quieter life in Melbourne where she is based with her partner, AFL star Shaun Thompson and their two children.
The Perth-born stunner's modelling career kicked off in Italy started when she cast in a commercial for local phone network Omnitel in 1999, which was a hit with Italians - making her an overnight celebrity.
She split time between Australia and Italy, but eventually relocated Italy where she was booking more jobs, including shoots with publications such as Vogue Italia, GQ and Maxim.
Earlier in the question and answer session, another fan asked her if she enjoyed her experience in Italy.
'Yes it was amazing. It overwhelmed me at times... to be come famous to 60 million people overnight is a shock to the system of a 22 year-old girl far away from home,' she said.
Megan said she was 'forever grateful for the experience' of learning the culture, the language and the Italian way of life.
'One of the best experience of my life and I miss it a lot. But so happy to be back and settled in Oz,' she added.
Megan later landed a TV presenting role with travel program Getaway from 2005 to 2006 and became a swimwear designer, launching her label Isola in 2010.
Megan also host Project Runway Australia in 2011 and became a judge on Australia's Next Top Model in 2016.
