"Look my personal view is that this is a private matter", Dan Tehan, the Minister for Social Services told ABC's Radio National yesterday morning, "It should be up to the individual, what they would like to put into the public domain or not".

Mr Joyce, 50, is in a relationship with his former media advisor Vikki Campion, 33, and has fallen "madly in love", according to The Daily Telegraph. The paper published a photo of Campion, purportedly showing her growing baby bump.

On Channel Seven's Sunrise program, Daily Telegraph journalist Sharri Markson defended running the story, saying the end of Mr Joyce's marriage had affected his approach to his work. "I don't think anyone walks down the aisle thinking that it will come to an end". This was going to become public, it's just a matter of timing.
"I can't quite fathom why a pregnant lady walking across the road deserves a front page, I don't know what the political goal is to that", he told the ABC's 7.30 program. He responded: "Nothing has been found because nothing is there". He said repeatedly that "private matters remain private". "I don't want any legislator to take that right away from me".
