The real stars of the Budget: Josh Frydenberg’s two young children struggle to contain their boredom as he hands down his forecast before his wife is forced to tell them to shhhhh
Josh Frydenberg’s two young children struggled to contain their boredom as their treasurer father unveiled the Budget – with his wife forced to tell them to ‘shush’.
Mr Frydenberg’s family were seen sitting to the side of the House of Representatives at Parliament House on Tuesday night as the Morrison government’s 2021/22 Budget was delivered to the nation.
The government has extended tax breaks for 10million Aussies, increased welfare for those looking for jobs, reformed childcare to save 250,000 families an average of $2,200 a year, and made it easier for single parents to buy their first home.

But the treasurer’s two children Blake and Gemma did not seem particularly inspired by the announcements, with their attention focused elsewhere.
The youngsters sat on either side of their mother Amie, who stunned in a brown long dress, with a slit down the middle.
She was forced to lift her index finger to her mouth to advise her kids to keep quiet during the proceedings.
Gemma wore a glittery dress with a tutu suit, while her younger brother donned a white button-up shirt, matched with blue Nike sneakers.

Mr Frydenberg’s decision to focus on jobs and the economy means large budget deficits for years to come, and net debt on a trajectory towards $1 trillion.
The government on Tuesday also revealed Australia would be shut off to the rest of the world until at least mid-2022.
