"We’re spending more and more time back in Australia and I definitely want the kids to grow up here and spend time here," he revealed.

Despite this, the Aussie hunk would neither confirm nor deny his purchase, saying "But I can’t confirm I’ve bought a house here so I'll side step that."

"We were in California a lot and I missed it here [in Australia] and my wife missed it too so that was our goal to get back here."
